Description

Read & Co. Classics presents this brand new edition of the seminal anti-slavery novel “Uncle Tom’s Cabin”, written by noted American abolitionist, Harriet Beecher Stowe, in 1852. Stowe’s novel revolves around the suffering and enslavement of its central character Uncle Tom, a black slave. The work depicts the shameful and harrowing experience of slavery from a Christian perspective, ultimately upholding the values of the religion as a means of overcoming the loss of humanity in the process. Stowe and her writing proved instrumental in energising support for the abolition of slavery during the 1850s, and Abraham Lincoln is reported to have given recognition to her involvement in the cause. The work has since been criticised for fuelling and perpetuating racial stereotypes and misconceptions, however it remains one of the most provocative and bold statements on the matter of abolition in the history of American literature.
