DISCUSSION: As with most questions, the answer can be confirmed using a few lines from the passage. Since you only have to check one answer (the one you think is correct), it’s not too hard to make sure.
- This is something the critics would agree with.
- CORRECT. Lines 25-28 show this is true. The author describes slave narratives and the domestic narrative as “two genres”.
- The author wouldn’t agree; they like Jacobs’ novel. And Jacobs’ novel certainly doesn’t obey the conventions of the “domestic” genre. The protagonist is a slave, instead of a free woman!
- We have no idea what the author thinks of autobiographies. They aren’t discussed.
- Same as D. Autobiographies aren’t mentioned. The novel is autobiographical, perhaps, but it’s not an autobiography.
