Part I. Life as a Slave.

My Bondage and My Freedom is an autobiographical slave narrative written by Frederick Douglass and published in It is the second of three autobiographies written by Douglass, and is mainly an expansion of his first Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass , discussing in greater detail his transition from bondage to liberty. Following this liberation, Douglass, a former slave, went on to become a prominent Abolitionist, speaker, author, and publisher. In his foreword to the Modern Library paperback edition, John Stauffer writes:. As his narrative unfolds, Frederick Douglass—abolitionist, journalist, orator, and one of the most powerful voices to emerge from the American civil rights movement—transforms himself from slave to fugitive to reformer, leaving behind a legacy of social, intellectual, and political thought. The text includes Douglass's original Appendix, composed of excerpts from the author's speeches as well as a letter he wrote to his former master.

I answer, a day that reveals to him, more than all other days in the year, the gross injustice and cruelty to which he is the constant victim. With that, he strove to drag me to a stick that was lying just out of the stable door. He meant to knock me down. He should know nothing but the will of his master, and learn to obey it. As to himself, learning will do him no good, but a great deal of harm, making him disconsolate and unhappy.
