Download Incidents In The Life Of A Slave Girl book, Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl is an autobiography by a young mother and fugitive slave published in 1861 by L. Maria Child, who edited the book for its author, Harriet Ann Jacobs. Jacobs used the pseudonym Linda Brent. The book documents Jacobs' life as a slave and how she gained freedom for herself and for her children. Jacobs contributed to the genre of slave narrative by using the techniques of sentimental novels "to address race and gender issues." She explores the struggles and sexual abuse that female slaves faced on plantations as well as their efforts to practice motherhood and protect their children when their children might be sold away.Jacobs' book is addressed to white women in the North who do not fully comprehend the evils of slavery. She makes direct appeals to their humanity to expand their knowledge and influence their thoughts about slavery as an institution.

Download Incidents In The Life Of A Slave Girl book, THIS EDITION HAS BEEN REPLACED BY A NEWER EDITION. This enlarged edition of the most significant and celebrated slave narrative now completes the Jacobs family saga, surely one of the most memorable in all of American history. John Jacobs's short slave narrative, A True Tale of Slavery, published in London in 1861, adds a brother's perspective to Harriet Jacobs's own autobiography. It is an exciting addition to this now classic work, as John Jacobs presents additional historical information about family life so well described already by his sister. Importantly, it presents the people, places, and events Harriet Jacobs wrote about from the different perspective of a male narrator. Once more, Jean Yellin, who discovered this long-lost document, supplies annotation and authentication. She has also brought her Introduction up to date.

Download Das Frauenbild In Harriet Jacobs Autobiographie Incidents In The Life Of A Slave Girl book, Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2002 im Fachbereich Amerikanistik - Literatur, Note: 1,3, Freie Universität Berlin (John F. Kennedy Institut), Veranstaltung: Literaturseminar, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl, by Harriet Jacobs ist eine Erzählung, die weit über das Genre des Slave Narrative hinausgeht, und sich als ein wichtiges feministisches Dokument auszeichnet. Das in dieser Biographie beschriebene Frauenbild wird geprägt von den folgenden Aspekten: Es wird hier die Wichtigkeit des Familienzusammenhalt verdeutlicht, indem Jacobs alles tut, um nicht nur ihre Kinder zu schützen, sondern auch die Beziehung zu ihrem Bruder, Tante, Onkel und vor allem ihrer Großmutter aufrecht zu erhalten. Des weiteren macht ihre Geschichte deutlich, daß die vier weiblichen Tugenden der viktorianischen Zeit, Frömmigkeit (piety), Reinheit (purity), Unterwürfigkeit (submissiveness) und Häuslichkeit (domesticity) aufgrund der Lebensumstände zwar nur von weißen Frauen und nicht von Sklavinnen befolgt werden konnten, sie aber dennoch für beide galten. Dadurch blieb der Sklavin von vornherein die "true womanhood" in der Gesellschaft verweigert. Jacobs macht sogar deutlich, daß die Passivität der Südstaatenfrauen gegenüber den Belangen der Sklavinnen die Versklavung von Frauen nicht nur gefördert hat, sondern daß sie sich dadurch auch selbst zu Sklavenhaltern machten und versündigten, und die `domestic Sphere ́ der schwachen Sklavinnen zerstörten. Deswegen dient ihre Autobiographie auch dazu die weißen Frauen der Mittelklasse anzusprechen, um sie zum Protest gegen Sklaverei zu ermutigen. Jacobs klagt das ganze Sklavensystem an und macht deutlich, daß es nicht nur die Sklavin zu Grunde richtet, sondern auch die Mistress und deren Töchter. Sie prangert das ganze Gesellschaftssystem an, und den Verrat an den gesellschaftlichen Idealen, wie das zu Mißhandlung und Ausbeutung mißbrauchte paternalistische System. Sie ist für Ihre Zeit (ihre Autobiographie wurde 1861 publiziert) sehr fortschrittlich in ihrem Denken und sieht, daß sowohl schwarz als auch weiß diesem korrupten System zum Opfer fallen . Sie beweist uns, daß das Bild der benevolenten Südstaatenfamilie mit der klassischen Südstaatenfrau und der `Southern Belle ́ aus ihrer Sicht nichts weiter als ein Mythos ist, ein Bild das für die Außenwelt geschaffen und mystifiziert wurde. Im Gegensatz zur klassischen `Plantation Novel ́ wird uns hier ein ganz anderes Bild von den Frauen der Südstaaten aufgezeigt, welches bei dieser Hausarbeit auch mein Thema sein soll. [...]

Incidents In The Life Of A Slave Girl Publishing People Series

by Linda Brent, Incidents In The Life Of A Slave Girl Publishing People Series Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download Incidents In The Life Of A Slave Girl Publishing People Series book, I was born a slave; but I never knew it till six years of happy childhood had passed away. My father was a carpenter, and considered so intelligent and skilful in his trade, that, when buildings out of the common line were to be erected, he was sent for from long distances, to be head workman. On condition of paying his mistress two hundred dollars a year, and supporting himself, he was allowed to work at his trade, and manage his own affairs. His strongest wish was to purchase his children; but, though he several times offered his hard earnings for that purpose, he never succeeded. In complexion my parents were a light shade of brownish yellow, and were termed mulattoes. They lived together in a comfortable home; and, though we were all slaves, I was so fondly shielded that I never dreamed I was a piece of merchandise, trusted to them for safe keeping, and liable to be demanded of them at any moment. I had one brother, William, who was two years younger than myself-a bright, affectionate child. I had also a great treasure in my maternal grandmother, who was a remarkable woman in many respects. She was the daughter of a planter in South Carolina, who, at his death, left her mother and his three children free, with money to go to St. Augustine, where they had relatives. It was during the Revolutionary War; and they were captured on their passage, carried back, and sold to different purchasers. Such was the story my grandmother used to tell me; but I do not remember all the particulars. She was a little girl when she was captured and sold to the keeper of a large hotel. I have often heard her tell how hard she fared during childhood. But as she grew older she evinced so much intelligence, and was so faithful, that her master and mistress could not help seeing it was for their interest to take care of such a valuable piece of property. She became an indispensable personage in the household, officiating in all capacities, from cook and wet nurse to seamstress. She was much praised for her cooking; and her nice crackers became so famous in the neighborhood that many people were desirous of obtaining them. In consequence of numerous requests of this kind, she asked permission of her mistress to bake crackers at night, after all the household work was done; and she obtained leave to do it, provided she would clothe herself and her children from the profits. Upon these terms, after working hard all day for her mistress, she began her midnight bakings, assisted by her two oldest children. The business proved profitable; and each year she laid by a little, which was saved for a fund to purchase her children. Her master died, and the property was divided among his heirs. The widow had her dower in the hotel which she continued to keep open. My grandmother remained in her service as a slave; but her children were divided among her master's children. As she had five, Benjamin, the youngest one, was sold, in order that each heir might have an equal portion of dollars and cents.
