Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

The story of a slave struggling to maintain his dignity during the pre-Civil War era, Uncle Toms Cabin was published in 1852 to tremendous success. Since then, the book has received significant acclaim and invoked controversy. Many believe it was an important step on the road to the Civil War, but others feel it encouraged stereotypes still fought against today. Yet all can agree that Harriett Beecher Stowes novel was been incredibly influential.

Following the slave Tom as he is bought and sold to one owner after another, as well as other slaves who escape to freedom with much difficulty, Uncle Toms Cabin is a crucial part of our American history. Now available in this Canterbury Classics edition, it is also a classic well worth reading today.

About the Author

Harriet Beecher Stowe (1811-1896) was an American abolitionist and author. Her novel Uncle Tom's Cabin (1852) was a depiction of life for African-Americans under slavery; it reached millions as a novel and play, and became influential in the United States and United Kingdom. It energized anti-slavery forces in the American North, while provoking widespread anger in the South. She wrote more than 20 books, including novels, three travel memoirs, and collections of articles and letters. She was born in Litchfield, CT.
