Benjamin Franklin

 

Written between 1717 and 1790, and originally referred to by its author as simply Memoirs, Benjamin Franklin’s autobiography is considered the pioneering example of the genre. In this influential account of the American Dream in action, Franklin recounts his early life, his inventions, his quest for virtue and self-improvement, and his political achievements. The unfinished work is a vivid depiction of life in early America, as well as a relatable and inspiring portrait of one of its revolutionary thinkers.

“Never confuse Motion with Action.” ― Benjamin Franklin, The Autobiography of Benjamin Franklin

The Autobiography of Benjamin Franklin is the traditional name for the unfinished record of his own life written by Benjamin Franklin from 1771 to 1790; however, Franklin himself appears to have called the work his Memoirs. Although it had a tortuous publication history after Franklin’s death, this work has become one of the most famous and influential examples of an autobiography ever written.

Franklin’s account of his life is divided into four parts, reflecting the different periods at which he wrote them. There are actual breaks in the narrative between the first three parts, but Part Three’s narrative continues into Part Four without an authorial break.

In the “Introduction” of the 1916 publication of the Autobiography, editor F. W. Pine wrote that Franklin’s biography provided the “most remarkable of all the remarkable histories of our self-made men” with Franklin as the greatest exemplar.

 

About the Author

Born in Boston to Josiah Franklin and Abiah Folger, Benjamin Franklin (1706–1790) was the fifteenth of his father’s seventeen children. An author, inventor, politician, and printer, he is celebrated for his hand in drafting the Declaration of Independence; negotiating the Peace Treaty between the United States and England following the Revolutionary War; and for numerous inventions, including the Franklin stove, bifocals, and the lightning rod. His autobiography, which remained unfinished and was first published posthumously in 1791, is considered the most influential example of the genre ever written.
