Frederick Douglass Chapter 11
Transcript of Frederick Douglass Chapter 11
pg 128 - Metaphor Douglass turns all his wages to Hugh Auld , who sometimes gives Douglass a small portion of it. Douglass turns his wages in a day late and Hugh gets mad and tells Douglass to find a job on his own. He's excited for this because he has the responsibilities of being a free man. He soon escapes to New York City and he is frightened because he is unaware of his surroundings. In New York, he meets a man who is black, named David Ruggles who takes him in. Then, he moves to New Bedford, and marries a free black woman named Anna Murray. All of the blacks work together in New Bedford.

I was yet liable to be taken back, and subjected to all the tortures of slavery. This in itself was enough to damp the order of my enthusiasm" Literary Terms
