9780030554544: Holt McDougal Library, High School with Connections: Individual Reader Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglas

Generally held to be the most famous piece written by a former slave, The Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass is a memoir on abolition written by the famous orator. First published in 1845, it set the tone for the American abolitionist movement. Within four months, it sold more than 5,000 copies; within fifteen years, it sold 30,000.

The eleven chapters in The Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass not only recount Douglass' life as a slave, but his tremendous ambition to become a free man. The Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass is the first of Douglas's three autobiographies and the most read. Inside this book, Douglass provides graphic descriptions of his childhood and horrifying experiences as a slave as well as a harrowing record of his dramatic escape to the North and eventual freedom.

The Narrative is admired today for its extraordinary passion, sensitive and vivid descriptions and storytelling power. This book belongs in the library of anyone interested in African-American history and the life of one of the country's most courageous and influential champions of civil rights. This amazing work that sparked a historical movement is presented in a beautifully bound, easy to read edition.

Product Description:

Webster's paperbacks take advantage of the fact that classics are frequently assigned readings in English courses. By using a running English-to-Norwegian thesaurus at the bottom of each page, this edition of The Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass: An American Slave by Frederick Douglass was edited for three audiences. The first includes Norwegian-speaking students enrolled in an English Language Program (ELP), an English as a Foreign Language (EFL) program, an English as a Second Language Program (ESL), or in a TOEFL? or TOEIC? preparation program. The second audience includes English-speaking students enrolled in bilingual education programs or Norwegian speakers enrolled in English-speaking schools. The third audience consists of students who are actively building their vocabularies in Norwegian in order to take foreign service, translation certification, Advanced Placement? (AP?) or similar examinations. By using the Rosetta Edition( when assigned for an English course, the reader can enrich their vocabulary in anticipation of an examination in Norwegian or English.
