Description

In 1845, just seven years after his escape from slavery, the young
Frederick Douglass published this powerful account of his life in bondage and his
triumph over oppression. The book, which marked the beginning of Douglass's career as
an impassioned writer, journalist, and orator for the abolitionist cause, reveals the terrors
he faced as a slave, the brutalities of his owners and overseers, and his harrowing escape
to the North. It has become a classic of American autobiography.

This edition of the book, based on the authoritative text that appears in Yale University
Press's multivolume edition of the Frederick Douglass Papers, is the only edition of
Douglass's Narrative designated as an Approved Text by the Modern Language
Association's Committee on Scholarly Editions. It includes a chronology of Douglass's
life, a thorough introduction by the eminent Douglass scholar John Blassingame,
historical notes, and reader responses to the first edition of 1845
