Project #111708 - Reading Response

Choose two to three direct quotations from Harriet Ann Jacob's "Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl" that demonstrate good word choice and tone.   Analyze each quote in terms of the words that are important and why in regards to the overall story.   Explain what the tone is and how that is determined from the selection of the author's words. For example, in the story, Jacobs writes in her opening paragraph about her father, "His strongest wish was to purchase his children; but, though he several times offered his hard earnings for that purpose, he never succeeded" (7). This demonstrates the harsh reality of slavery for families. We have children, and they naturally belong to us. This was not the case for slaves. She uses many more words on her first page to get across the business of slavery and the lack of freedom she and her family had. This sets the tone of fear and disgrace she feels towards her unfortunate circumstances.
