As such it deserves to be offered to twentieth-century readers in the most accurate form possible, and so it is, in this Norton Critical Edition, the first text to be edited directly from the manuscripts, rather than perpetuating the errors of previous editions.The text is fully annotated, and the reading is assisted by helpful footnotes, biographical sketches, and two maps.In "Backgrounds", the editors collect Franklin's most important reflections on the Autobiography's purpose, some anecdotes, and a number of Franklin's statements on wealth, the art of virtue, and perfection.nbsp; Materials in "Criticism" range from contemporary opinions--which reveal that readers were divided then as they are now about the art of the Autobiography--to essays written in the twentieth century.Nineteenth-century opinions include those of John Keats, Edgar Allen Poe, Mark Twain, and William Dean Howells, among others.The twentieth-century materials include D.

An entertaining read by one of the nation's quirkiest founding fathers. Franklin's sense of humor and wisdom shines in the narrative of his own life. As a series of letters written to his son, he holds nothing back. He comments on various blunders of his youth and describes the methods of "self-improvement" he set out to make part of his daily life in order to attempt to become a better person. I think this autobiography's merit lies in Franklin's own self-examination, which offers some timeless words of wisdom. I think anyone can appreciate his attempts to improve himself. It certainly made me reflect on ways I can improve my own habits while I am still young! ( )
