Autobiography of Benjamin Franklin

Number of Pages 7

A 7 page essay that discusses the central role that Franklin’s list of virtues plays in his autobiography. While Franklin’s account demonstrates that he largely succeeded in his goal to live by these virtues, his references to others, specifically Samuel Keimer, John Collins, and Hugh Meredith, provide contrast to Franklin’s own behavior, as they provide an antithesis for the virtues in Franklin’s list. Examination of Franklin’s autobiography indicates how he uses this contrast to paint a strong portrait of himself as his text’s protagonist. No additional sources cited.
