Captivity narrative and autoethnography are two types of life writing that I interested in. The life narrative of Frederick Douglass, Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl by Harriet Jacobs and the poem The House Slave by Rita Dove, have indicated the situation that slaves were living in that time. Both of these works go under the umbrella of the slave narrative. I read these texts before, and I appreciate the hard work and the courage of these writers to share their stories with the readers.
