The Autobiography of Ben Franklin by Benjamin Franklin himself


Benjamin Franklin ( January 17, 1706 - April 17, 1790 ) ,is perhaps one of most important history figure in U.S. history. Benjamin Franklin was a leading author and printer, satirist, political theorist, politician, scientist, inventor, civic activist, statesman , soldier and one of Founding Fathers of United States of America. His colorful life and legacy of scientific and political achievement have seen Franklin honored on coinage and money; warships; the names of many towns, counties, educational institutions, namesakes, and companies; and more than two centuries after his death, countless cultural references.
Every children in U.S. have learned about his role in American history, but there are more to learn about his inspired life during the hard time of American Revolutionary.

"The acting is superb."
-- LA Times

"This well-known work by one of our nation's founding fathers was certainly given to the right individual to narrate. Fredd Wayne, whose one-man show, "Benjamin Franklin, Citizen," has also been recorded by Audio Editions, seems to have captured Franklin's persona."
-- Dick Richmond, St. Louis Post-Dispatch, October 19, 1997

Product Description
Benjamin Franklin's Autobiography is one of the most famous works in American literature. He started it as a private collection of anecdotes for his son, but soon it was transformed into a work of history. This is a charming, self-portrait of one of America's greatest forefathers.

From the Inside Flap
Famous as a scientist, statesman, philosopher, businessman, and civic leader, Benjamin Franklin was also one of the most powerful and controversial American writers of his time, and has been a subject of intense debate ever since: to Matthew Arnold, he exemplified "victorious good sense"; to D.H. Lawrence, he was "the first dummy American." Franklin's classic Autobiography is his last word on his greatest literary creation -- his own invented persona, the original incarnation of the American success story.

For the first time, the authoritative editions of works by major American novelists, poets, scholars, and essayists collected in the hardcover volumes of The Library of America are being published singly in a series of handsome and durable paperback books. A distinguished author has contributed an introduction for each volume, which also includes a detailed chronology of the author's life and career, an essay on the choice of the text, and notes.

About the Author
Fredd Wayne's distinguished career includes stage, film and television performances in South Pacific, Oh, Men! Oh, Women!, Wonderful Town, Cagney & Lacey, Cheers, and Matlock. He has performed Benjamin Franklin, Citizen on Broadway and toured with it throughout the world, as well as starring in an NBC-TV special, Ben Franklin, American.
