What are some examples that explores Douglass’s use of chiasmus as not only a rhetorical strategy used to emphasize key points throughout his narrative, but also as a strategy that mirrors the very structure of the narrative. In other words, Douglass, the writer, is a master at undermining and reversing a system of power relations: to show that the master is also a slave (to sadistic practices, to power, to unnatural behavior); the nominal Christian as hypocrite; the weak as strong; the slave as free. How does he portray that?
