Uncle Tom's Cabin: Or, Life Among the Lowly (Signet Classics) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The iconic abolitionist novel-in a striking new package

By exposing the extreme cruelties of slavery, Harriet Beecher Stowe explores society's failures and asks: "What is it to be a moral human being?" This is a powerful, triumphant work that is an essential part of the collective experience of the American people.

Synopsis:

In a nation divided on the slavery question, 'Uncle Tom's Cabin' had the profound effect of defining and calling dramatic attention to the issues involved. Though a century had passed since the novel's first publication, 'Uncle Tom's Cabin' is curiously undated, surprisingly sophisticated, deeply moving.

Synopsis:

Arguably the most influential novel in American history, Uncle Tom's Cabin fanned the embers of the struggle between free states and slave states into the fire of the Civil War-and is as powerful and relevant today as when it was first published a century and a half ago.
