108 Words1 Page
Douglass’ autobiography Narrative of The Life of Frederick Douglass, An American Slave was among the first Slave Narratives written by a former slave. Also, it was written differently in a new autobiographical form, glorifying the conflicts, the struggles and the success of an individual in place of recounting a story following a chronological order which is the classic form of an autobiography. Frederick Douglass consolidated different ideologies and philosophies in his work because he was very inspired by Henry Thoreau and Ralph Waldo Emerson who were considered as leaders in philosophy. Douglass’ narrative was used to defend the human rights, criticizing religion but also as a political context.
