Although it had a sinuous publication history after Franklin's death, this work has come one of the most notorious and influential exemplifications of an autobiography ever written. Franklin's account of his life is divided into four corridor, reflecting the different ages at which he wrote them. There are factual breaks in the narrative between the first three corridor, but Part Three's narrative continues into Part Four without an authorial break. In the" preface" of the 1916 publication of the Autobiography, editorF.W. Pine wrote that Franklin's memoir handed the" most remarkable of all the remarkable histories of our tone- made men" with Franklin as the topmost exemplar.
