Pendekatan obyektif dalam tulisan ini dipakai untuk mengungkap elemen praktik slavery dalam Narative of the Life of Frederick Douglas. Hasil analisis menunjukkan bahwa elemen slavery dapat diketahui melalui apa yang dijalani. Tema besar karya ini adalah perbudakan kulit putih terhadap kulit hitam (negro) di Amerika Serikat.
