An American Slave: Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass is a memoir and treatise on abolition written by famous orator and ex-slave Frederick Douglass. The book is considered one of the most influential pieces of literature to fuel the abolitionist movement in the United States. Margaret Fuller, a prominent book reviewer, claimed, "We have never read a narrative] more simple, true, coherent, and warm with genuine feeling." She also suggested that "everyone may read this book and see what a mind might have been stifled in bondage--what a man may be subjected to the insults of spendthrift dandies, or the blows of mercenary brutes, in whom there is . . . no humanity in the outward form." Douglass's Narrative was an incredibly influential book that is still well worth reading today. Newly designed and typeset by Waking Lion Press.
