Uncle Tom's Cabin (Dover Thrift Editions)

Harriet Beecher Stowe


Selling greater than 300,000 copies the 1st 12 months it used to be released, Stowe's robust abolitionist novel fueled the fireplace of the human rights debate in 1852. Denouncing the establishment of slavery in dramatic phrases, the incendiary novel quick attracts the reader into the realm of slaves and their masters.
Stowe's characters are powerfully and humanly discovered in Uncle Tom, an imposing and heroic slave whose religion and dignity are by no means corrupted; Eliza and her husband, George, who elude slave catchers and at last flee a rustic that condones slavery; Simon Legree, a brutal plantation proprietor; Little Eva, who suffers emotionally and bodily from the discomfort of slaves; and fun-loving Topsy, Eva's slave playmate.
Critics, students, and scholars are at the present time revisiting this enormous paintings with a brand new objectivity, targeting Stowe's compelling portrayal of girls and the novel's theological underpinnings.
