9780007902262: Uncle Tom?s Cabin (Collins Classics)

HarperCollins is proud to present its range of best-loved, essential classics.

‘One thing is certain, - that there is a mustering among the masses, the world over; and there is a dis irae coming on, sooner or later.’

Viewed by many as fuelling the abolitionist movement of the 1850s and laying the groundwork for the Civil War, Harriet Beecher Stowe’s sentimental and moral tale of slaves attempting to secure their freedom was one of the most popular books of the nineteenth century. Centred round the long-suffering Uncle Tom, a devout Christian slave who endures cruelty and abuse from his owners, Tom is often celebrated as the first black hero in American fiction who refuses to obey his white masters. With other strong protagonists such as Eliza, a courageous slave who flees to the North with her son when she learns that he is to be sold, Beecher Stowe highlighted the plight of southern slaves and the breaking up of black families. Not without its controversy, more recent criticism has suggested that the novel contributed negatively to the stereotyping of the black community.

Review:

"Christopher Diller's edition of Uncle Tom's Cabin is, without a doubt, a major contribution. By tracing the novel's critical reception and voracious consumption by a global audience for more than 150 years, Diller breathes new life into this best-selling text. Diller makes the work accessible to a variety of audiences: scholars; students in American Studies, history, and literature courses; and general readers who want to savor the emotive power of this American classic. He insightfully maps the reasons Stowe's masterpiece continues to be anchored in the American literary tradition, and the degree to which it continues to lie at the foundation of this tradition in the 21st century. This is a masterly treatment of an American master text."--Wilfred D. Samuels

"The Broadview Press edition of Uncle Tom's Cabin is a splendid addition to the scholarship on Stowe's iconic and controversial novel. Christopher Diller's superb introduction and imaginative selection of supporting materials provide a stimulating array of historical and literary contexts-and remind us of how alive this text remains."--Joan D. Hedrick, author of Harriet Beecher Stowe: A Life (Oxford University Press)
