Harriet Ann Jacobs Í 1 REVIEW

Radation in North Carolina to liberty and reunion with her children in the NorthWritten and published in 1861 after Jacobs' harrowing escape from a vile and predatory master the memoir delivers a powerful and unflinching portrayal of the abuses and hypocrisy of the master slave relationship Jacobs writes frankly of the horrors she suffered as a slave her eventual. Book Review Harriet Ann Jacob s work was similar to Frederick Douglass narrative in that both of the pieces read so uickly and easily I very much enjoyed Jacob s piece The language seemed so real and almost as though Harriet or Linda was telling the story to me herself I understood the work very easily also probably because I had previously read Douglass piece which showed the life of a slave who was beaten viciously at times Jacobs who experienced a very different type of slavery was mentally abused than physically abused She was a strong woman who I admired very much I thought she made a few mistakes in her life but she was a role model for all the other slaves Jacob s work has shown the awful side of life like Douglass had but Jacobs story was aimed towards a white women s audience from the Intro Either way she has shown the struggle of a woman who wants to free her children and so she is also fighting for herself She wants to free herself from the burdens of Mr Flint Jacobs work definitely is a strong model for women who are fighting to free themselves from the wrongs of society She is a good representative of at the same time a woman from the mid 19th century who s trying to escape She may not have suffered them same persecutions as every other slave but she still suffered It flowed so smoothly and really gained an interest from the readers It hit home for some people and for others it just tugged on their heart strings some I think that it is very important for people to read this piece of literature because it gives a representation of a different side or type of American life It is a part of our culture back then and a part of our history Overall I really liked this work and would recommend it to anyone About Me For those new to me or my reviews here s the scoop I read A LOT I write A LOT And now I blog A LOT First the book review goes on Goodreads and then I send it on over to my WordPress blog at where you ll also find TV Film reviews the revealing and introspective 365 Daily Challenge and lots of blogging about places I ve visited all over the world And you can find all my social media profiles to get the details on the whowhatwhenwhere and my pictures Leave a comment and let me know what you think Vote in the poll and ratings Thanks for stopping by
