In her narrative, Jacobs appeals to her audience’s sense of pathos through her use of metaphors, allusions, and figurative language in order to make the hard lives of female slaves prevalent. By comparing herself to an inanimate object through the use of a metaphor, Jacobs causes the reader to understand the fact that slaves were not viewed as humans, but rather as property.
