READING: 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.

READING: Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl is the immensely powerful autobiography of Harriet Jacobs, who wrote under a pen name. A feminist work, she uses her experiences to state and restate her belief that though all unhappiness sprung from being a slave, she had to endure worse, being also a woman. Her experiences show that the only refuge and relief to be found were in other women, and also that women were less able to attempt freedom when that would mean leaving their children behind. Her autobiography is the account of her struggle to achieve that freedom and respect and redefine herself. Her life is a testament to her grandmother's credo: "He that is willing to be a slave, let him be a slave."

READING: This enlarged edition of the most significant and celebrated slave narrative completes the Jacobs family saga, surely one of the most memorable in all of American history. John S. Jacobsâe(tm)s short slave narrative, A True Tale of Slavery, published in London in 1861, adds a brotherâe(tm)s perspective to Harriet A. Jacobsâe(tm)s autobiography. It is an exciting addition to this now classic work, as John Jacobs presents further historical information about family life so well described already by his sister. Once more, Jean Fagan Yellin, who discovered this long-lost document, supplies annotation and authentication.This is the standard edition of Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl, reissued here in the John Harvard Library and updated with a new bibliography.

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.

READING: Much of what is known about the experience of slavery comes from first-person accounts written by formerly enslaved men. In this volume, Jennifer Fleischner examines the first- and best-known female account of life under, and escape from, slavery — Harriet Jacobs’ autobiography. In her introduction, Fleischner shows how Jacobs used the written word to liberate herself and promote the end of slavery by carefully discussing her sexual exploitation as a slave in ways that would inspire sympathy in — and not offend — her Victorian white, middle-class, female audience. The rich collection of related documents that accompany Jacobs’ complete narrative — including a selection of Jacobs’ letters and her brother’s account of some of the same incidents Jacobs describes — illuminate Jacobs’ life, her thoughts about writing, and her relationships with white women abolitionists. Document headnotes, a chronology, questions for consideration, a selected bibliography, and a chart of the pseudonyms Jacobs used for her real-life characters further enrich this important contribution to the history of slavery in America.

READING: 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. [...]

READING: Eindelijk is er dan een praktische handleiding voor het op zijn Romeins omgaan met je slaven. Het Handboek slavenmanagement geeft antwoorden op elke vraag en biedt hulp bij elk probleem. Auteur-slaveneigenaar Marcus Sidonius Falx weet hoe en waar je slaven koopt en hoe je ze het best gebruiken kunt. Hij legt uit hoe je een goede slaaf van een slechte kunt onderscheiden, hoe je straffen moet en hoe je je autoriteit laat gelden. Hij behandelt ook het precaire onderwerp van seks: mogen je slaven onderling seks hebben, en waarop moet je bedacht zijn als je een mooie slaaf of slavin begeert? En wanneer laat je een slaaf vrij? Word met deze gids heer en meester in je huis. Eén tip alvast: koop niet te veel slaven die elkaars taal verstaan... De familie van Marcus Sidonius Falx houdt al generaties lang slaven. Na zijn jaren in het leger is hij zich gaan wijden aan het beheer van zijn landgoederen. Hij heeft Jerry Toner, van de universiteit van Cambridge, aangenomen om zijn tekst van commentaar te voorzien, en Mary Beard zo ver gekregen een voorwoord te schrijven. Dat eindigt met deze intrigerende vraag: 'Hoe verschillend zijn wij eigenlijk van de Romeinen?'

"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. 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.

READING: 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. When I first arrived in Philadelphia, Bishop Paine advised me to publish a sketch of my life, but I told him I was altogether incompetent to such an undertaking. Though I have improved my mind somewhat since that time, I still remain of the same opinion; but I trust my motives will excuse what might otherwise seem presumptuous. I have not written my experiences in order to attract attention to myself; on the contrary, it would have been more pleasant to me to have been silent about my own history. Neither do I care to excite sympathy for my own sufferings. But I do earnestly desire to arouse the women of the North to a realizing sense of the condition of two millions of women at the South, still in bondage, suffering what I suffered, and most of them far worse. I want to add my testimony to that of abler pens to convince the people of the Free States what Slavery really is.
