Visit us online at www.1stWorldLibrary.ORG - Late in the afternoon of a chilly day in February, two gentlemen were sitting alone over their wine, in a well-furnished dining parlor, in the town of P - , in Kentucky. There were no servants present, and the gentlemen, with chairs closely approaching, seemed to be discussing some subject with great earnestness. For convenience sake, we have said, hitherto, two gentlemen. One of the parties, however, when critically examined, did not seem, strictly speaking, to come under the species. He was a short, thick-set man, with coarse, commonplace features, and that swaggering air of pretension which marks a low man who is trying to elbow his way upward in the world. He was much over-dressed, in a gaudy vest of many colors, a blue neckerchief, bedropped gayly with yellow spots, and arranged with a flaunting tie, quite in keeping with the general air of the man. His hands, large and coarse, were plentifully bedecked with rings; and he wore a heavy gold watch-chain, with a bundle of seals of portentous size, and a great variety of colors, attached to it, - which, in the ardor of conversation, he was in the habit of flourishing and jingling with evident satisfaction. His conversation was in free and easy defiance of Murray's Grammar, [1] and was garnished at convenient intervals with various profane expressions, which not even the desire to be graphic in our account shall induce us to transcribe.

Product Description:

Harriet Beecher Stowe’s Uncle Tom’s Cabin is widely recognized for its pivotal role in polarizing attitudes regarding slavery in the months leading up to the Civil War in the United States. Stowe’s well-informed narrative of antebellum life in the American South remains one of the most politically influential works in the American canon. Uncle Tom’s Cabin not only explores the issue of slavery but the nature of class and race relationships in America. Praised for its abolitionist sentiment yet oft-criticized for its propagation of stereotypes, the text is a must-read for those seeking to understand America, yesterday and today.
