Douglass, however, saw it as eminently progressive. Douglass shared his newfound … Finding common ground with his … Douglass tried to escape from slavery twice before the finally succeeded.

These descriptions of inequality plague the first half of the book and the reader realizes the “worth" of a slave when Douglass states, “We were all ranked together at the valuation. This belief in the character-perfecting power of detraction is a regular element in Douglass’s thought. A want of information concerning my own was a source of unhappiness to me even during childhood. Condensation does have a downside: there are a couple of misperceptions created by the rapidity of the survey, although these involve figures other than Douglass. It dignifies labor, honors application, lessens pain and depression, dispels gloom from the brow of the destitute and weariness from the heart of him about to faint, and enables man to take hold of the roughest and flintiest hardships incident to the battle of life, with a lighter heart, with higher hopes and a larger courage. He engages in a fight with is cruel master. Sandefur gets most of this right. Nonetheless, at risk of outraging the sisterhood and its male affiliates, I think it is quite possible that Douglass elicited such devoted feminine support because he was already in some sense “Douglass.” Being who he was, he commanded support, not by barking orders, but rather by his undeniable personal magnetism—his manliness, if you like.

A piece by David Blight in the New York Times, complaining of Sandefur’s “libertarian” appropriation of Douglass, takes this tack: [Douglass] forged a livelihood with his voice and pen, but fundamentally was not a self-made man as he painted himself in a famous speech, an image through which modern conservatives and libertarians have adopted him as a proponent of their brand of individualism. Douglass himself titled the second version of his autobiography My Bondage and My Freedom. Frederick Douglass encountered many obstacles during his journey to freedom. The highest order of genius is as dependent as is the lowest.”. Instead of merely pointing out the fact that he did not know the details of his background is a structurally vital part of the narrative, but Douglass takes this observation one step further by remarking upon the difference between the white and black children. To describe all of his experiences, Douglass uses many rhetorical devices that … He is much better fed and clothed, and enjoys privileges altogether unknown to the slave on the plantation. A great master of rhetoric, Douglass used traditional persuasive appeals to sway the audience into adopting his point of view.
