Uncle Tom's Cabin (81 Edition)by Harriet Beecher Stowe
This novel must be read in the context of its own time. Looking at the book from present-day eyes, it seems to contain, not characters, but caricatures. The characters in this book became larger than life over time and a series of emotions attached to them that were not intended in the beginning. Beautiful and poignant, Uncle Tom's Cabin changed history. Upon meeting the author, Abraham Lincoln said, "So you're the little lady who wrote the book that made this great war." She replied, "I did not write it. God wrote it. I merely did his dictation." While most of the book is painful to read, it is a sprawling story full of amazing characters and horrific events. It is a "slice-of-life" that we, as modern readers, can never truly understand, but it is well worth the uncomfortable reading in order to honor those who lived it.
