NARRATIVE OF THE LIFE OF FREDERICK DOUGLASS, AN AMERICAN SLAVE

by | Read by Raphael Nash Thompson

Biography & Memoir • 3 hrs. • Abridged • © 1845

Frederick Douglass's autobiography takes us from his birth to the time he began his activities as an abolitionist. In a work filled with pain and pathos, Thompson's low-key and understated, at times almost deadpan, style of reading brings the passion and irony of Douglass's text into bold relief. It's the perfect way to read this intense work. One marvels at Douglass's ability to restrain intense emotion in describing the pain and injustice he endured as a slave and his longing to be free. M.T.F. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: SEPT 96]
