Description


The Interesting Narrative of the Life of Olaudah Equiano is the autobiography of Olaudah Equiano. The narrative is argued to represent a variety of styles, such as a slavery narrative, travel narrative, and spiritual narrative. The book describes Equiano's time spent in enslavement, and documents his attempts at becoming an independent man through his study of the Bible, and his eventual success in gaining his own freedom and in business thereafter.

The Interesting Narrative of the Life of Olaudah Equiano was one of the first widely read slave narratives. The structure and rhetorical strategies of the book were influential and created a model for subsequent slave narratives. The work has proven so influential in the study of African and African-American literature that it is frequently taught in both English literature and History classrooms in universities.

This case laminate collector's edition includes a Victorian inspired dust-jacket.
