Northup's account provides extensive details on the slave markets in Washington, D.C. and New Orleans and describes at length cotton and sugar cultivation on major plantations in Louisiana.

Solomon Northup, ein freier Bürger des Staates New York, wird 1841 unter einem Vorwand in die Südstaaten gelockt, vergiftet, entführt und an einen Sklavenhändler verkauft. 12 Jahre lang schuftet er auf den Plantagen im Sumpf von Louisiana, und nur die ungebrochene Hoffnung auf Flucht und die Rückkehr zu seiner Familie hält ihn all die Jahre am Leben. Die erfolgreiche Verfilmung der Autobiographie Solomon Northups hat das Interesse an diesem Werk neu geweckt. Neben der dramatischen Geschichte von Solomon Northups zwölfjähriger Gefangenschaft ist dieses Buch zugleich ein zeitgeschichtliches Dokument, das die Institution der Sklaverei und die Lebensweise der Sklaven in den Südstaaten eindrucksvoll und detailliert beschreibt.

Der Bestseller 12 Years a Slave, als Kinofilm mit dem Golden Globe und dem Oscar ausgezeichnet, in einer sorgfaltigen originalgetreuen Ubersetzung, die Sprache und Stil Solomon Northups unverfalscht wiedergibt. Bibliophile Ausgabe mit den Originalillustrationen, historischen Fotografien und Hintergrundinformationen zu Buch und Film. Bonus: Was wurde aus Solomon Northup nach seiner Befreiung? Der Buchgestalter Zenz durchtrankt das Buch [...] mit der historischen Aura der Erstausgabe. Die Ubersetzerin liefert einen soliden deutschen Text. [...] Dieses E-Book ist mehr als das Buch zum Film (Lothar Muller in der Suddeutschen Zeitung vom 24. Marz 2014) Zwolf Jahre als Sklave (Twelve Years A Slave) ist die bewegende Autobiografie eines frei geborenen schwarzen Amerikaners, der entfuhrt und versklavt wurde, ehe ihm endlich die Flucht gelang. Solomon Northup lebt mit Frau und Kindern in Saratoga im Bundesstaat New York und halt sich mit kleinen Handwerksjobs und Geigenspiel uber Wasser, bis er 1841 zwei Fremde kennenlernt, die ihn mit dem Versprechen eines Engagements als Zirkusmusiker nach Washington locken - damals eine Drehscheibe des Sklavenhandels in den USA. Die beiden betauben ihn und verkaufen ihn an einen Plantagenbesitzer in Louisiana; schliesslich landet er auf den Baumwollfeldern eines unbarmherzigen Masters und kann erst nach zwolf Jahren mit der Hilfe eines kanadischen Freundes in die Freiheit zuruckkehren. Northups Bericht erschien 1853 kurz nach dem Roman Onkel Toms Hutte und war in den USA ein Bestseller. Zur Zeit des Sezessionskriegs geriet er in Vergessenheit und wurde erst von der Historikerin Sue Eakin wiederentdeckt, die 1968 nach mehrjahrigen Recherchen eine kommentierte Neuausgabe herausgab. Schliesslich stiess der britische Kunstler und Regisseur Steve McQueen auf Northups immer noch weitgehend vergessenes Buch und machte es zur Vorlage fur seinen 2013 erschienenen Film 12 Years a Slave. Ich war entsetzt, dass ich die Geschichte nicht kannte. Aber dann horte ich mich ich um und stellte fest: Niemand kannte das Buch. Ich wohne in Amsterdam und dachte sofort an die Parallelen zu Anne Frank. Twelve Years ist fur die Sklaverei so wichtig wie Anne Franks Tagebuch fur die Nazizeit. (Steve McQueen in der Frankfurter Allgemeinen Sonntagszeitung) Twelve Years a Slave liegt erstmals auf Deutsch vor und ist fur deutschsprachige Leser noch zu entdecken. Da Sklaverei faktisch bis heute vorkommt, ist Solomon Northups beklemmender Bericht nicht nur von historischem Interesse, sondern von bleibender Aktualit

Kidnapped and sold into slavery in the American South, freeman Solomon Northup spent twelve years in bondage before being freed. Twelve Years a Slave is Northup’s moving memoir, revealing unimaginable details of the horrors he faced as a slave on Southern plantations, and his unshakable belief that he would return home to his family. Written in the year after Northup was freed and published in the wake of Harriet Beecher Stowe’s Uncle Tom’s Cabin, Northup’s story was quickly taken up by abolitionist groups and news organizations as part of the fight against slavery, and continues to resonate more than a century after the end of the American Civil War.

Master's Thesis from the year 2015 in the subject English - Pedagogy, Didactics, Literature Studies, grade: 2,0, Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz, language: English, abstract: This thesis will go in depth in an effort to answer whether Twelve Years a Slave is an appropriate book to teach in German classrooms and how it can be taught. Furthermore, this paper will equip high school teachers with a step-by-step outline offering background information, teaching ideas and suggestions. The details in this paper, along with the analyses and presentation, provide the reader with essential information that will later be referred to in the teaching unit. Different themes that are considered of high importance are presented to equip the teacher for a unit using the narrative Twelve Years a Slave. Slavery is alive and well in our society today, nearly one hundred fifty after its legal end. Human trafficking, brothel houses, and franchise owners enslaving undocumented workers are just a few instances of modern day slavery. Consequently, this begs the question if, and what, is the importance of learning about slavery? Furthermore, what is the best and most influential way to portray this controversial issue? History books are a common source in history lessons all over the world, even if they involve factual texts that do not have a great effect on students. When teaching the institution of slavery, though, the genre of slave narrative is worth considering using. In recent years slave narratives have resurfaced, shedding light and insight into the peculiar institution of slavery in the antebellum South. Frederick Douglass and Harriett Jacobs -to name a few- are examples of former slaves who shared their story and expedited the antislavery movement. Solomon Northup, a free black man who was kidnapped, sold into slavery and deprived of liberty for twelve years wrote one of the most popular slave narratives, documenting his experiences during his time in bondage. The peculiar institution of slavery is a complex history topic that is hard to summarize. With his book, Northup created a work that involves the individual life of a slave and presents the institution from a micro perspective. In 2013, the story of his book resurfaced and with the help of British director Steve McQueen and participating actor Brad Pitt, and the 19th century slave narrative turned Hollywood Blockbuster hit. Following the movies big success, Twelve Years a Slave was subsequently added to the national curriculum in the United States.

The official movie tie-in edition to the winner of the 2014 Academy Award for Best Picture, starring Chiwetel Ejiofor, Michael Fassbender, and Lupita Nyong’o, and directed by Steve McQueen New York Times bestseller “I could not believe that I had never heard of this book. It felt as important as Anne Frank’s Diary, only published nearly a hundred years before. . . . The book blew [my] mind: the epic range, the details, the adventure, the horror, and the humanity. . . . I hope my film can play a part in drawing attention to this important book of courage. Solomon’s bravery and life deserve nothing less.” —Steve McQueen, director of 12 Years a Slave, from the Foreword Perhaps the best written of all the slave narratives, Twelve Years a Slave is a harrowing memoir about one of the darkest periods in American history. It recounts how Solomon Northup, born a free man in New York, was lured to Washington, D.C., in 1841 with the promise of fast money, then drugged and beaten and sold into slavery. He spent the next twelve years of his life in captivity on a Louisiana cotton plantation. After his rescue, Northup published this exceptionally vivid and detailed account of slave life. It became an immediate bestseller and today is recognized for its unusual insight and eloquence as one of the very few portraits of American slavery produced by someone as educated as Solomon Northup, or by someone with the dual perspective of having been both a free man and a slave.
