I’m trying to study for my English course and I need some help to understand this question.
150 words for both questions.
1) While both works were very controversial and popular (in some cases, infamous) during their time, discuss why Stowe and Douglass’ works were important in their own right. What elements made Stowe’s work important? What elements made Douglass’s work(s) important. Feel free to compare and contrast.
2) What was Stowe and Douglass’s relationship like? How was this important during the time period and to their writings? Can you make a connection between particularly Douglass’s work and the works we read from the Founding Fathers?
