Editorial Review

Product Description
This volume contains the first and most famous of Frederick Douglass`s three autobiographies, Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass. First published in Boston in 1845, only seven years after Douglass`s escape from bondage, the Narrative provided the foundation for its author`s antebellum reputation as a writer. Douglass went on to write two more autobiographies, becoming one of a very small number of nineteenth-century Americans to publish more than one account of their lives. His books provide an unparalleled record not only of the events of his life but also of his shifting perceptions of the complex worlds of slavery and freedom that he inhabited. The autobiographies reflect the differences in his age (the first was written when he was twenty-seven, the last when he was in his seventies), his memory, and his objectives at the various times of his writing. ...

Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass, An American Slave and Essays (Wadsworth Classics)

Collected Articles of Fredrick Douglass

Buy these books, keep a copy and buy more copies as gifts to family and friends.

Frederick Douglass' works should be a part of everybody's library. He is one of the most outstanding Americans who ever lived. His life resembles the lives of many of the Prophets of the Bible... basically untaught by men, but inspired by the Creator with insight, boldness, knowledge, courage, fortitude and, yes, some prophecy.

Frederick Douglass' works should be studied at all levels of education, beginning with elementary schools. If he were a European American, I believe this would indeed be done, like George Washington and Thomas Jefferson and others. In my humble opinion, he ranks above them. ... Read more

Product Description
The Oxford Frederick Douglass Reader collects in one volume the most outstanding and representative work from Frederick Douglass's fifty year writing career. The reader contains the following classic texts in their entirety: the landmark fugitive slave narrative, Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass, An American Slave (1845), the consummate anti-slavery oration, "What To the Slave Is the Fourth of July" (1852), the pioneering novella, The Heroic Slave (1853), and the magisterial analysis of lynching, Lessons of the Hour (1894). Also included are notable examples of Douglass's journalism, in which he advocated women's rights and black enlistment in the Civil War. Generous selections from My Bondage and My Freedom (1855) illustrate Douglass's boldly revisionist personal and political agenda in his second autobiography. Major chapters from both the 1881 and the 1892 editions of the final autobiography, Life and Times of Frederick Douglass, reveal the author's perspective on his own successes and his estimate of the nation's progress on the racial front in the post-war era. The introduction by Andrews offers a thoughtful review of the crucial developments in Douglass's multi-faceted career as autobiographer, journalist, lecturer and racial spokesman. ... Read more

Product Description

Frederick Douglass: A Biography explores the life of the most famous black abolitionist and intellectual of the 19th century. The book covers the major developments of Douglass's life from his birth in 1818 through his time as a slave and his rise to prominence as the most famous black voice for freedom of his time.

The biography discusses Douglass's relationships with such figures as John Brown, the feminist Elizabeth Cady Stanton, and five presidents of the United States, including Abraham Lincoln. It analyzes his role in national politics before, during, and after the Civil War, and examines the way his life is tied to significant local, regional, and national events. By focusing on the importance of spirituality in Douglass's life, this revealing work adds to our understanding of the man, the way he saw himself, and the many things he accomplished.

3-0 out of 5 stars We need a better edition!
Douglass is great--a true American hero--and it's very nice to have a good, affordable single-volume collection of his writings. But be warned that this edition has MANY typographical errors--on nearly every other page--and does not contain the original typographical style, which I think detracts from the experience. Still, it's a very handy reference to have around.

5-0 out of 5 stars A superb collection of speeches, writings, and reflections.
Frederick Douglas was one of the most important African American leaders of the 19th Century. He was a man who spoke and wrote with an unsurpassed eloquent on the issues confronting the American people during his life. Hiscommentaries ranged from the abolition of slavery to women's rights, Fromthe Civil War to racial lynchings, from American patriotism to blacknationalism. Frederick Douglas: Selected Speeches and Writings wasoriginally edited by Philip S. Foner and has been abridged and adapted inthis superb "The Library of Black America" edition by YuvalTaylor. Frederick Douglas: Selected Speeches And Writings will form a coretitle in any personal, academic, or public library Black Studiescollection. ... Read more

Editorial Review

Product Description

Like no other reference before it, The Frederick Douglass Encyclopedia celebrates and investigates the life, writings, and activism of one of the most influential African Americans in U.S. history.

The Frederick Douglass Encyclopedia offers more than 100 alphabetically organized entries covering Douglass's extraordinary journey from childhood in bondage to forceful spokesperson for equality and freedom before, during, and after the Civil War. In addition tobiographical details, the book looks at the full breadth of Douglass's writings and speeches, as well as the events that shaped his intellect and political views. Together, these entries create an enduring portrait of one of the nation's most iconic figures, a man who went from slavery to invited guest in Abraham Lincoln's White House, whose commitment to freedom for all led to his participation in the first women's rights conference at Seneca Falls, and whose profound influence ranged well beyond the borders of the United States.

5-0 out of 5 stars Raw and Authentic!
Frederick Douglass wrote three narratives about his life in slavery and his subsequent escape.Of the three, I recommend the first one because it's written from the heart with honesty and raw emotion.He wrote the first narrative before he became famous and I was deeply moved with his simplicity of language to express the atrocities his fellow slaves and him faced in Pre-Civil War America.The second and third editions are written after he became a famous abolitionist and lecturer, and his writing style is more fastidious, full of a new-found conceited confidence, which detracts from the brutality and hopelessness he endured as a slave in the South.I also recommend that you read "The Confessions of Nat Turner", published in 1831, which describes the first black insurrection against slavery.And, if you have not already done so, complete the cirle by reading "Uncle Tom's Cabin".

5-0 out of 5 stars Frederick Douglass
We all know the general history of slavery and its dehumanizing effects, but reading this self written narrative of a portion of the life of Frederick Douglass was not only informative but also gave a much more personal expression of the life of a slave in those days. Douglass was indeed a strong and intelligent man.
I've now ordered his biography which will not be as personal, but will provide a more complete picture of all his efforts to abolish slavery.

3-0 out of 5 stars really cheap looking
this book looks like a knockoff of another edition or something. the cover looks really unprofessional, and the title isn't even printed on the spine of the book. however, the text is the same, so i guess if you don't mind. kinda annoying because i have no idea what book is sitting on my bookshelf though

Editorial Review

Product Description
This new work chronicles Frederick Douglass' preparation for a career in oratory, his emergence as an abolitionist lecturer in 1841, and his development and activities as a public speaker and reformer from 1841 to 1845. Lampe's scholarship overturns much of the conventional wisdom about this phase of Douglass' life and career, uncovering new information about his experiences as a slave and as a fugitive; it provokes a deeper and richer understanding of this renowned orator's emergence as an important voice in the crusade to end slavery. Included in this work is a complete itinerary of Douglass' oratorical activities, correcting errors and omissions in previously published works - as well as two newly discovered complete speech texts, never before published. ...
