An Analysis of Frederick Douglass Writings on His Physical Struggles and His Writing as Resistance Nearly Parallel
Word Count: 234
In Frederick Douglass writings I learned that his physical struggles and his writing as resistance are nearly parallel When Douglass is living in Baltimore with the Auld family Mrs Auld began to teach him the alphabet After this was discovered by Mr Auld the teaching ceased and Douglass was carefully watched to be sure that he was not reading when alone Despite this Douglass was insistent upon learning to read because he knew that his literacy would lead to his freedom His means of resistance through writing was going against what he was allowed to do and doing what he knew was key to his survival as a human being In learning to read I owe almost as much to the bitter opposition of my master as to the kindly aid of my mistressp 58Douglass physical struggle as a means of resistance is very similar to his learning to read They were both forbidden A good example of one of Douglass physical struggles was his fight with Mr Covey My resistance was so entirely unexpected that Covey seemed taken all abackp78 After winning this victory Douglass felt as he did when learning to read It made him feel sure of himself and it made him feel like a real person in charge of his own destiny It was a glorious resurrection from the tomb of slavery to the heaven of freedomp79
