"Black Beauty" is written as an autobiography, as if the horse were telling his own story. It explains that the story takes place as in the eighteen hundreds in England, during a time when horses were the main means of transportation and labor. Black Beauty describes his life from his beginning as a colt through various owners to his final home, again in the country. The paper shows how during the course of his life, Black Beauty learns the differences in humans and their treatment of animals, particularly horses.

From the Paper:

"Black Beauty begins his life on a farm where he was fed and sheltered well. He spends the first two years of his life enjoying himself as a colt before he is a witness to tragedy. A popular sport at the time was hunting fox and hare. In this particular instance it was a hare that the men were chasing, which ended in the death of one of the hunters and the need to put down the rider's horse, which we discover later was Black Beauty's brother. At the age of four, Black Beauty is gently broken in. It is during this time that Black Beauty's mother teaches him that not all humans are kind to their horses. After being broken in and has become accustom to the various tack used with horses during this period of time, Black Beauty is sold to Squire Gordon."
