Final Draft Frederick Douglass uses personal anecdotes in order to emphasize the trials and tribulations he had while learning how to read and write. As stated on page 150 Douglass claims that “...learning to read had been a curse rather than a blessing.” This quote from Douglass himself asserts his view that he was aware of his condition, but could do nothing about it. Frederick also goes on later in the text to talk about a trick to get writing lessons. For example, Douglass would tell a boy passing by that he could write letters as well as he. The boy then said “I don’t believe you. Let me see you try it”(152). Douglass would copy the few letters he knew and then challenge the boy to do better. Of course the boy would copy all letters of the alphabet and surpass him. Douglass would eventually end up learning to write.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
