SUMMARY:

"Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl" was one of the first books to address the struggle for freedom by female slaves; explore their struggles with sexual harassment and abuse; and their effort to protect their roles as women and mothers. After being overshadowed by the Civil War, the novel was rediscovered in the late 20th century and since then hasn't been out of print ever. It is one of the seminal books written on the theme of slavery from a woman's point of view and appreciated worldwide academically as well. Excerpt: "Reader be assured this narrative is no fiction. I am aware that some of my adventures may seem incredible; but they are, nevertheless, strictly true. I have not exaggerated the wrongs inflicted by Slavery; on the contrary, my descriptions fall far short of the facts. I have concealed the names of places, and given persons fictitious names. I had no motive for secrecy on my own account, but I deemed it kind and considerate towards others to pursue this course...." Harriet Jacobs (1813–1897) was an African-American writer who was formerly a fugitive slave. To save her family and her own identity from being found out, she used the pseudonym of Linda Brent and wrote secretly during the night.

SUMMARY:

Reader be assured this narrative is no fiction. I am aware that some of my adventures may seem incredible; but they are, nevertheless, strictly true. I have not exaggerated the wrongs inflicted by Slavery; on the contrary, my descriptions fall far short of the facts. I have concealed the names of places, and given persons fictitious names. I had no motive for secrecy on my own account, but I deemed it kind and considerate towards others to pursue this course. I wish I were more competent to the task I have undertaken. But I trust my readers will excuse deficiencies in consideration of circumstances. I was born and reared in Slavery; and I remained in a Slave State twenty-seven years. Since I have been at the North, it has been necessary for me to work diligently for my own support, and the education of my children. This has not left me much leisure to make up for the loss of early opportunities to improve myself; and it has compelled me to write these pages at irregular intervals, whenever I could snatch an hour from household duties.

SUMMARY:

Seminar paper from the year 2004 in the subject American Studies - Literature, grade: 2,5, University of Göttingen (Department of American Studies), course: HS American Autobiographies, 12 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: In dieser Seminararbeit behandele ich Harriet Jacobs' "Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl". Dabei wird das Werk einer genaueren Analyse unterzogen, um es literaturtheoretisch einordnen zu können. Dabei werden unter anderem die amerikanische Autobiographie sowie der slave narrative näher dargestellt. 'Incidents' ist ein slave narrative der besonderen Art, da er von einer Frau geschrieben wurde, die ganz anderen Reaktionen ausgesetzt war wie ein Mann in der damaligen Zeit. Dies wird auch in meiner Analyse deutlich.
