Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass. William Lloyd Garrison โ€” Frederick Douglass's second autobiography, My Bondage and My Freedom, published by the New York commercial publishers Miller, Orton, and Mulligan inis larger, more self-consciously literary, and more self-analytical than the Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass From its opening s, where the African American abolitionist James McCune Smith, known for his vehement criticism of Bondage and slave Lloyd Garrison, supplants Douglass's former mentor as prefacer of the memoir, My Bondage and My Freedom shows that it is more than a mere updated installment of the Narrative.

The second autobiography offers a thoughtful revision of the meaning and goals of Douglass's life. My Bondage and My Freedom introduces few incidents or figures from Douglass's past that do not appear in the Narrative. But the second autobiography says more about Douglass's complex relationship to his environment, particularly in the South, than emerges in the more famous fugitive slave narrative.

Douglass's grandmother, who appears in the Narrative only in the throes of a pathetic death, becomes the able and self-sufficient Betsey Bailey in the opening chapters of My Bondage and My Freedom, respectfully portrayed as the creator of the only real home young Frederick ever knew as a slave. InDouglass brought his life story to a glorious culmination with an image of himself proclaiming the antislavery gospel from the lecture platform, a fugitive slave fully enlisted in the abolitionist crusade. Ten years later a chastened Douglass testified to the prejudice and paternalism among the Garrisonian abolitionists that caused him eventually to break from their bondage and slave.

Realizing the subtle bondage of racist paternalism in the North as well as the South, Douglass announces at the end of My Bondage and My Freedom his conviction that the best way to attack slavery in the South is to immerse himself in the cause of the quasi-free African Americans of the North. Thus Douglass moves away from the individualism of the Narrative and toward a greater communal identification in My Bondage and My Freedom.
