Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl - 09 edition

Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl (ISBN10: 1438299583; ISBN13: 9781438299587)

Summary: Harriet Ann Jacobs was an American writer, escaped slave, abolitionist speaker and reformer. Jacobs' single work, Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl, published in 1861 under the pseudonym ''Linda Brent'', was one of the first autobiographical narratives about the struggle for freedom by female slaves and an account of the sexual abuse they endured. While on one level it chronicles the experiences of Harriet Jacobs as a slave, and the various humiliations she had to endure in that
unhappy state, it also deals with the particular tortures visited on women at her station. Often in the book, she will point to a particular punishment that a male slave will endure at the hands of slave holders, and comment that, although she finds the punishment brutal in the extreme, it cannot compare to the abuse that a young woman must face while still on the cusp of girlhood.
