In his autobiography we see him as a product of the Age of Enlightenment, a Yankee statesman who could use the language of Addison, Steele, Swift, and Defoe. Franklin asks himself, "Who am I, how did I come to be, and why am I a human being as I am?" He answers with honesty, wit, and charm, which makes this possibly the best of all autobiographies.
