No book more vividly explains the horror of American slavery and the emotional impetus behind the antislavery movement than Frederick Douglass' "Narrative". In an introductory essay, Robert Stepto re-examines the extraordinary life and achievement of a man who escaped from slavery to become a leading abolitionist and one of our most important writers. The John Harvard Library text reproduces the first edition, published in Boston in 1845.
