The purpose behind writing and publishing slave narratives was to oppose the pro slavery propaganda. The narratives did the job of promoting humanity by presenting before people the horrific treatment given to the slaves. These narratives were also influenced by the thoughts of abolitionist orators. The reasons for slave narratives gaining popularity were not just the sensational and lurid picture of slavery portrayed in it, but also the interesting information and facts about the southern parts of America, where slavery was a common practice. Moreover, the narratives were influenced by religious principles.
