Overview

Uncle Remus Stories (1906) by Joel Chandler Harris (1845-1908), with illustratrions.

Uncle Remus is a collection of animal stories, songs, and oral folklore, collected from Southern United States African-Americans. Many of the stories are didactic, much like those of Aesop's Fables and the stories of Jean de La Fontaine. Uncle Remus is a kindly old former slave who serves as a storytelling device, passing on the folktales to children gathered around him.

Br'er Rabbit ("Brother Rabbit") is the main character of the stories, a likable character, prone to tricks and trouble-making who is often opposed by Br'er Fox and Br'er Bear. In one tale, Br'er Fox constructs a lump of tar and puts clothing on it. When Br'er Rabbit comes along he addresses the "tar baby" amiably, but receives no response. Br'er Rabbit becomes offended by what he perceives as Tar Baby's lack of manners, punches it, and becomes stuck.

    Read what is below and tell me what you think adress me as dd

    i belive that in the end it really does not matter how you or someone looks like on the outside it matter how they look on the inside so next time you see a poor girl or boy at school or at your work smile and be nice i know how hard it is to not judge someone but if you look deep inside you will find love one other thing is show someone you care by sharing after all sharing is careing. -dd

    I knew it. In my heart, this clan will die of inactiveness again and it DID! I always knew that. Now, I must say goodbye. Who needs this excuse for a clan? It dies for the first time and it will die the second time. So, I will go now. GOODBYE, LOUSY EXCUSE FOR AN ACTIVE CLAN!
