Overview

Uncle Tom's Cabin by Harriet Beecher Stowe (Unabridged Edition) by Harriet Beecher Stowe

Set in the South in the antebellum 1850s, the novel depicted the life of several slaves and their harsh treatment by Simon Legree, a vicious slaveowner. While energizing the abolition movement in the North, the novel angered many in the South who pointed out that Beecher Stowe had never even visited several of the areas she wrote about, and much of the book was actually written in Brunswick, Maine. In response to critics, Beecher Stowe later wrote THE KEY TO UNCLE TOM'S CABIN, in which she attempted to mollify her critics by discussing her inspiration and sources for UNCLE TOM'S CABIN.

About the Author

Harriet Beecher Stowe (1811-1896) was an outspoken abolitionist and writer. Born in Connecticut, Stowe had little first-hand experience with slavery; however, she did witness at least one slave auction. Stowe became an ardent abolitionist; she and her husband participated in the Underground Railroad and assisted a number of runaway slaves. Her lasting contribution to the abolitionist cause was her 1852 novel UNCLE TOM'S CABIN, whose stark description of the evils of slavery spurred support for abolition in the North.
