Dred: A Tale of the Great Dismal Swamp based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.
Harriet Beecher Stowe is well known as the author of Uncle Tom's Cabin. It is too bad that her other tale, Dred, was not as well recognized, for Dred is a much stronger worker of art. Both novels' theme was antislavery. Stowe allowed the scenes of Dred to speak for themselves. Dred is a black revolutionary. The other lead character is the mistress of the slave plantation. The conflict between the races is cleverly demonstrated in this novel.
