Question Description

I've again provided "enhancement" links in this week's resources folder. I'd strongly suggest watching John Green's introduction to the Atlantic Slave Trade. They include a biographical resource on Douglass's life as well as a one-man show in which an actor appears on C-SPAN as Douglass. This latter is worth watching for at least a bit -- one of the things we know about Douglass is that he was a brilliant orator. This actor's performance might offer at least a glimmer of insight into what he might have been like when addressing an audience about his experiences.


Option 1: Applying the Marxist Lens. (400 words)


Obviously, as a slave narrative Douglass's text explores the distinctions between slave owners and slaves. But that isn't the only class dynamic explored in his book. Reflect on the power relationships between people of different classes work in the book. You can talk about the slave/master relationship, but also look at hierarchies within each group. Refer back to the "Typical Questions" introduced in the Purdue OWL introduction to Marxist Criticism to help you get started.

Option 2: Applying the Feminist Lens (200 words)

The introduction to the Narrative calls attention to the fact that the text focuses very much on the struggle between men -- slaves and slave owners. Explore this idea in greater depth. Again, you can use the "Typical Questions" in the Purdue OWL article on Feminist Criticism to get you started.

Introduction

The Atlantic Slave Trade had different effects, both positive and negative to the parties involved.
Notably, the Africans that were bought off and sold to America and Brazil underwent a lot of
challenges on their way and at their places of work, limiting their productivity. On the other side,
slave masters greatly benefitted from the slave trade since they acquired cheap labor that served
in their large farms and industries for years. However, the slave trade was faced by a number of
issues, as discussed below.
Applying the Marxist Lens
In relation to the Marxist Lens, different individuals have different perceptions and
imaginations that are at most times defined by how the society or they feel, behave, think and
perceive them. Moreover, every social institution is based on specific ideologies and concepts
that provide a base and a b...
