Review Frederick Douglass’s Narrative
Discuss at least two examples of how Douglass discusses the past and then includes his reflections on those memories.
Describe how Douglass’s reflections make you feel. What specific details/descriptions did he include that contributed to you feeling this way?
- What was significant about these details? In other words, why did they stand out to you?
- How might you include reflections in your own narrative story?
- Include textual evidence from the chapters to support your analysis.
- An example of this might be if I am writing about how horrific the whippings were, I could use “the gory lash to his naked back” as textual evidence to support my statements.
