It is recognized from the introduction to The Autobiography that Franklin “helped establish a tradition in American writing of the simple, utilitarian style,” and that the work itself is “American’s first great book.”

One of the elements of the work’s greatness is exemplified by specific storytelling techniques.Of these techniques, we see Franklin organizes his writing partially in the letter-form.Consider the tone of The Autobiography and the thoughts in “Benjamin Franklin Slept Here.” What does omission of certain details do to the story itself?Does it make it less true?

Think about how you might share a story with someone you don’t know personally.Briefly explain why you might leave out certain details.
