This paper relates how Linda Brent in "Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl" draws in the reader through her own words and experiences of the pains she suffered through her life in the South. The author feel that the writer puts her own emotive attitude into the text to give the words meaning and a passion that only comes from the soul. The author points out that Jacobs begins with a brief apology to the reader, not for her words or her style, but for their own minds thinking that her work may be a fictional piece of writing.

From the Paper:

"Jacobs? words have had an effect upon me. If by understanding the true account of one slave girl, we can understand the true meaning of slavery. What happened to the slaves in the Deep South was not just a matter of white supremacy but white hatred. This story can be seen to be in its rawest sense an emotional work. If it were written by anyone but an ex slave, it would not have the same effect, the words come from the heart and not from the mind."
