    Uncle Tom’s Cabin highlights the disgusting evil and immoral times of slavery in American history This sentimental novel is fictional but shares truth in what life was like for slaves and how they were treated during these dark times It’s been said that this book helped lay the groundwork for the American Civil War This was a recommended read for my daughter’s American History curriculum but not a reuired one I

    Talk of the abuses of slavery Humbug The thing itself is the essence of all abuse I remembered this uote from Uncle Tom's Cabin all of a sudden when I accidentally paraphrased it in a discussion on gun control at school Some issues can't be solved by half measures They have to be abolishedThere are books that shape who you are I remember when I first read Uncle Tom's Cabin as a young girl Before that I had only a vague idea of slavery in

    It's not really this book's fault that it sucks Harriet Beecher Stowe's heart was in the right place she aimed to expose

  8. says:

    The main character of Uncle Tom's Cabin and at least one of the minor characters are freuently mocked by modern black activists rappers and comedians Therefore when I began reading this novel originally published in 1852 I was expecting a woefully outdated story with painful outrageous stereotypes and archaic language and had prepared myself for a real struggle to navigate through it in order to see how this book mobilized people in the US

    Book Review 4 out of 5 stars to Uncle Tom's Cabin written in 1852 by Harriet Beecher Stowe For some reason we didn't read this book in high school; possibly an excerpt or two was thrown in front of us but I honestly don't really remember reading it until freshman year of college Prior to reading it the silly and

    I’m going to keep this one very short and relatively sweet Uncle Tom’s Cabin is a wonderfully forward thinking book full of optimism hope and one that captures the simple and honest nature that comes with a genuine hero who is faced with tyranny It’s a monumentally important book historically speaking this is one of the most influential pieces of literature ever written It worked towards humbling a racis

This book is one of the most moving provocative pieces of literature I ve ever read and it s the first time that I can recall being moved to tears from a book As long as I live I will never be able to remove from my mind the vision of Eliza panicked and frenzied in the dead of the night with her baby boy in her arms leaping across the frozen ice of the Ohio river to escape the trader her baby had been sold to And if anyone wants to read a profound and well written narrative for the view of a Black Slave look to George s monologue on page 127 128 where he is at the Inn with Mr Wilson disguised as a white upperclass gentlemen and explaining to Mr Wilson how he feels about his countryI was involved in the book up to that point but after that this book owned me This should be reuired reading of every American Citizen and it s in my top five of the most important books I have ever read For whatever the cause of the American people it all comes down to When in the course of human events

Years of writing about the novel Paul Laurence Dunbar Jane P Tompkins and Susan M Ryan among others admire Uncle Tom's Cabin for its social vision and artistry while James Baldwin and Sophia Cantave among others argue that the book's racism continues to promote misperceptions and that its prominence does ongoing damage A Chronology of Stowe's life and work a Brief Timeline of Slavery in America and an updated Selected Bibliography are also included. It s not really this book s fault that it sucks Harriet Beecher Stowe s heart was in the right place she aimed to expose the evils of slavery Abraham Lincoln is said to have called her the little woman who wrote the book that made this great war That s patronizing and it didn t but it didn t hurt eitherBut it hasn t aged well According to this book here sWhat Black People Are Like The African naturally patient timid and unenterprising The negro is naturally impressible to religious sentiment than the white The negro it must be remembered is an exotic of the most gorgeous and superb countries of this world and he has deep in his heart a passion for all that is splendid rich and fanciful a passion which rudely indulged by an untrained taste draws on them the ridicule of the colder and correct white raceI put uotes of this type in the comments below if you re really interested This comes across as racist because it totally is and here s the thing there were other people who wrote about slavery and did not make statements like these Black people Stowe s source for Uncle Tom himself in fact is Josiah Henson whose real life story you can read for free instead of this I know things were different back then but I also don t think we need to over complicate our historical relativism If someone were to ask me what I m reading and I were to feel compelled to explain myself I know it s racist I m not reading it because I like it then my conversation with the book as literature is condescending and it s outlived its usefulness and that s okay It s okay if it did some good once and it s run out of good now It s okay if it goes out of style We don t have to like burn all the copies But I do feel like when we have the opportunity to hear about oppression from the oppressed themselves then that s betterIt s true that slave narratives were written for white audiences with specific goals and formulae and often dictated to white ghost writers so this isn t totally straight forward But slave narratives are anyway authentic than Uncle Tom I guessAnyway back to the actual book Uncle Tom is frankly an Uncle Tom but to Stowe s credit she also supplies lots of other perspectives George and his uaker allies have a By any means necessary approach to slavery and Stowe goes out of her way to get us to root for their violent tactics I wasn t expecting that and I dug itOverall the book is badly sentimental Y know it s easy to make you have feels by describing like a woman whose children are stolen from her and then she gets raped You don t have to be a good writer to make a scenario like that powerful Stowe is an okay writer but she pours on the pathos she can t shut up about isn t this awful and I didn t really need it underlined There are a couple people here who take like fifty pages to finish giving deathbed speeches about Jesus and you re like good lord this makes Dickens seem aloof It s annoying So look this might be of interest to someone researching how white abolitionists felt back in the day but it s not particularly good literature and its ideas are woeful and that doesn t leave much Drawing Dead (Faolan OConnor Book 1) really this book s
