Re: Uncle Tom's Cabin - the book
In Response To: Uncle Tom's Cabin - the book ()
I always wonder how many who use the terms casually have ever read the book.
It is extremely powerful, even now, when we have to rethink a bit to consider the 19th century attitudes and such.
It is a fundamental American book, a historical phenomena in the remarkable sales and popularity it experienced upon publication, and a valuable tool for understanding sklavery and the 19th century attitudes towards it.
