Read Uncle Tom's Cabin; or, Life Among the Lowly Uncle Tom's Cabin; or, Life Among the Lowly Read Ì PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook Read ↠ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook È Harriet Beecher Stowe 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 It s not really this book s fault that it sucks Harriet Beecher Stowe s heart was in the right place she aimed to expose the evils of slavery Abraham Lincoln is said to have called her the little woman who wrote the book that made this great war That s patronizing and it didn t but it didn t hurt eitherBut it hasn t aged well According to this book here sWhat Black People Are Like The African naturally patient timid and unenterprising The negro is naturally impressible to religious sentiment than the white The negro it must be remembered is an exotic of the most gorgeous and superb countries of this world and he has deep in his heart a passion for all that is splendid rich and fanciful a passion which rudely indulged by an untrained taste draws on them the ridicule of the colder and correct white raceI put uotes of this type in the comments below if you re really interested This comes across as racist because it totally is and here s the thing there were other people who wrote about slavery and did not make statements like these Black people Stowe s source for Uncle Tom himself in fact is Josiah Henson whose real life story you can read for free instead of this I know things were different back then but I also don t think we need to over complicate our historical relativism If someone were to ask me what I m reading and I were to feel compelled to explain myself I know it s racist I m not reading it because I like it then my conversation with the book as literature is condescending and it s outlived its usefulness and that s okay It s okay if it did some good once and it s run out of good now It s okay if it goes out of style We don t have to like burn all the copies But I do feel like when we have the opportunity to hear about oppression from the oppressed themselves then that s betterIt s true that slave narratives were written for white audiences with specific goals and formulae and often dictated to white ghost writers so this isn t totally straight forward But slave narratives are anyway authentic than Uncle Tom I guessAnyway back to the actual book Uncle Tom is frankly an Uncle Tom but to Stowe s credit she also supplies lots of other perspectives George and his uaker allies have a By any means necessary approach to slavery and Stowe goes out of her way to get us to root for their violent tactics I wasn t expecting that and I dug itOverall the book is badly sentimental Y know it s easy to make you have feels by describing like a woman whose children are stolen from her and then she gets raped You don t have to be a good writer to make a scenario like that powerful Stowe is an okay writer but she pours on the pathos she can t shut up about isn t this awful and I didn t really need it underlined There are a couple people here who take like fifty pages to finish giving deathbed speeches about Jesus and you re like good lord this makes Dickens seem aloof It s annoying So look this might be of interest to someone researching how white abolitionists felt back in the day but it s not particularly good literature and its ideas are woeful and that doesn t leave much
