Basically the more Douglas reads and learns, the more painful it is to remain a slave,

"As I writhed under it, I would at times feel that learning to read had been a curse rather than a blessing. It had given me a view of my wretched condition, without the remedy." Chapter 7

What prompted Douglass to write: “I would at times feel that learning to read had been a curse rather than a blessing”? Why did he feel this way about learning to read?
