Twelve Years A Slave
Packaged in handsome, affordable trade editions, Clydesdale Classics is a new series of essential literary works. It features literary phenomena with influence and themes so great that, after their publication, they changed literature forever. From the musings of literary geniuses like Mark Twain in The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn to the striking personal narrative of Harriet Jacobs in Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl, this new series is a comprehensive collection of our history through the words of the exceptional few.
The original story for the 2013 Academy Award?winning film Twelve Years a Slave is the autobiographical account of Solomon Northup?an African American man born free in New York State who is tricked, kidnapped, taken to Washington, DC, and sold into slavery. After being drugged, bound, and denied his rights as a free man, Northup is sold and transported to slave owners in New Orleans.
Here he experiences the true horrors of the slave trade?intense cruelty, beatings, sickness, negligence, barbarism, starvation. Throughout the book's melancholic prose, Northup recounts these horrific experiences in excruciating and agonizing detail. In one of the book's passages, he states: ?My sufferings I can compare to nothing else than the burning agonies of hell!" For the next twelve years, Northup kept his identity hidden only to himself and remained imprisoned in this state of bondage.
Originally published eight years before the Civil War and written in the same vein as the Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass, this groundbreaking work gave Americans from the north razor-sharp, firsthand insight into the tragedies that were occurring in the South. Still today, Northup's story is widely studied and reprinted, giving its readers a glimpse into a painful part of our country's past.
