Olaudah Equiano's autobiography challenged minds and hearts in the late 1700s. The first autobiography ever written by a former slave, The Interesting Narrative of the Life of Olaudah Equiano is one of the most well-recognized slave-narratives. It was first published in 1789 and gained notoriety as a mechanism for the abolitionist movement in England in 1807. In his work, Equiano illuminates the life of himself as a slave and then a freed man, ultimately becoming a respected politician and philosopher.

But even a repressive state cannot obliterate desire - neither Offred's nor that of the two men on which her future hangs....
