In the nineteenth century, Uncle Tom's Cabin sold more copies than any book in the world except the Bible. Upon publication, it was quickly translated into thirty-seven languages and has never gone out of print. It remains a controversial and complex text that, along with David Walker's Appeal, Henry David Thoreau's Walden, W. E. B. DuBois's The Souls of Black Folk, and Helena María Viramontes' Under the Feet of Jesus, among others, stands out as an important text in the progressive struggle for social justice in the United States.This Second Edition is based on the original 1852 book edition, published in two volumes by John P. Jewett and Company, Boston, and includes all original illustrations. The text is accompanied by a preface and detailed explanatory annotations to assist the reader with obscure historical terms and biblical allusions."Backgrounds and Contexts" includes a wealth of historical documents addressing the issues of slavery and abolitionism. New visuals in the Second Edition include a selection of abolition posters and records of torture. Also newly included is J. Hector St. John de Crevecoeur's eyewitness account of slavery as a visitor to the United States, a selection from David Walker's Appeal, and Henrietta King's autobiographical account of the horror of slavery."Criticism" presents a balanced view of the ongoing controversy over Uncle Tom's Cabin in fifteen reviews and scholarly interpretations spanning more than 150 years of writing about the novel. Paul Laurence Dunbar, Jane P. Tompkins, and Susan M. Ryan, among others, admire Uncle Tom's Cabin for its social vision and artistry, while James Baldwin and Sophia Cantave, among others, argue that the book's racism continues to promote misperceptions and that its prominence does ongoing damage. A Chronology of Stowe's life and work, a Brief Timeline of Slavery in America, and an updated Selected Bibliography are also included.… (mais)

My English teacher said we should keep this book and be proud of the fact that we have read it! Well, I own it for precisely that reason -- I knew I would be proud of the fact that I read it!

I definitely fall on the side of the critics ... I think Harriet Beecher Stowe was a racist, which I wasn't expecting. I would be interested in reading journal articles from the Catholic perspective from that time, because the Christian martyrdom aspect of the novel confused and disturbed me. There's a whole religious aspect to the novel that I was not aware of and I'm definitely interested in learning more about that.

A somewhat confusing read because of its "dramatix mix of anti-slavery and white racism" (Introduction by Jean Fagan Yellin, page XXVII) I nevertheless enjoyed the story, the characters, the dialogues and the drama of the book. It is clear that the book has been written more than 150 years ago and we probably have to read it with that fact in mind in order to to enjoy it. I had read a children's version many times before but have now read the full text. And I found it much more profound ànd shocking at the same time. But I cannot but admire Harriet Beechers Stowe's language and storytelling skills which made me so interested in all her characters, even though I knew the main events already. ( )

Very hard book to get through with the mix of basically ebonics and old english narrative. Would recommend the movie Amistad much more over this book to show the world of slavery in America, just seemed like every slave character had the IQ of a two year old and preached the values of Christianity much more than the triumphs of human will or perseverance of hope.

How do you rate a classic? It's certainly a difficult task. Do you rate by the enjoyment? The significance of the novel? Uncle Tom's Cabin is definitely significant. It did, after all, persuade many Americans to see the wrongs of slavery. This novel is an important piece of literature which will help readers understand life in the 19th century. Now, that's not necessarily slave life. Stowe uses methods to manipulate her audiences into joining the "abolitionist" side. A great intention, yes, but was ignoring the brutal harshness of slavery and replacing it with lovable, pious, charitable, "impressionable", slaves who are described more like docile pets than humans really the right method? Who knows. Stowe achieved what she set out to do.

The modern reader who ignores the novel's conventions as 19th century conventions might find Uncle Tom's Cabin a little bit of a bore and often "corny" at times. The novel is also notorious for its sentimentality, so don't be surprised when you witness every character crying at everything. It's a mopey piece! The characters might not appear very convincing to the modern reader. I often felt like I do when watching a decent play with terrible actors. Everything seems forced, overly dramatic, and way too long.

Overall, don't read this for enjoyment or pleasure. Read it for what it did for America. ( )
