Harriet Ann Jacobs known to the public as Linda Brent and Frederick Douglass both were the victims of slavery and succeed to escape its clutches. As they possessed the skill of literateness, after becoming free members of the American society, they decided to write down their experiences of living as slaves to share what they had witnessed. Consequently, “Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl” is the fruit of Linda Brent’s labor, and Frederic Douglass delivered his testimony in “Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass, an American Slave”. Additionally, this is not the point where their similarities diminish. They were also involved into abolitionist movement and work as social reformers which gained them recognition and esteem amid Northerners.

Even though she stated beforehand that she was “to show up tomorrow saying I was one year older” (54), the dress may of given off a different impression towards the oriental man she encounters on her first day. Blue can evoke intelligence and sophistication, and again a sense of loyalty and submission, something Esperanza clearly confirmed when unwillingly kissed the man. The essence of the chapter truly the loss of innocence, but the colour blue is linked with the common theme of young submission and ignorance. In the chapter, “Born Bad” (58-61), Esperanza is further exposed to the realities of death. Esperanza, in an innocent tangent to show her death-struck aunt an illustration from a book, is told that “I [Esperanza’s aunt] can’t see it, she said, I’m blind.

Bloodletting, which is the withdrawal of blood from a patient to cure or prevent illness and disease, dates all the way back to circa 2500 BCE. It was used for centuries but not until the late 1800s was it questioned for its beneficiality, and it was still used in some forms during the 1900s. This practice first originated in ancient Egypt. Then it spread to Greece, Rome, India, and the Arab areas.
Doctors used leeches which are segmented worms that are blood suckers. They also carried knives and lancets. They believed they could cure metal illness issues. The doctor would cut the patients veins and allow the patient to bleed out to get rid of the infected blood. The bleeding had no positive effect and increased the chances of death.
