Mrs. Sophia Auld

Character Analysis

Hugh Auld's wife Sophia has never owned a slave before Douglass, so she doesn't understand much about the slave-owning culture. As she becomes corrupted by the experience of owning Douglass, she shows that slave owning is terrible thing for white people too. She is changed from a warm and sympathetic woman to a cruel, jealous tyrant.
