In CliffsNotes on Uncle Tom's Cabin, you discover Harriet Beecher Stowe's most memorable and socially relevant novel -- a book that, when published in 1852, galvanized public opinion against slavery in a way never seen before. The story follows the lives of two slaves: Eliza, who escapes slavery with her son, and Tom, who must endure humiliation, abuse, and torture inflicted by his owners.

  • A review section that tests your knowledge
