Here is the novel that possibly started the American Civil War and changed the world's position on inequality and tolerance. The writer was threatened and accused of lying and her book was parodied, that is, people were really frightened by it. Never before had the question of slavery and race intolerance stood so prominent and painful. The story of Uncle Tom, honest and faithful servant of the "white master" absorbed all the growing restlesness and worries of people in those times. As it appears in the book, Uncle Tom and his friends and acquaintances behave far more dignified than some white people, who care only about themselves and indulge in their idiosyncrasies. However, the slaves in this novel are also shown differently - Elize and her son Harry, and servants Cassy and Emmeline are dying to get away but Uncle Tom is faithful to whatever master he has at the moment: kind Arthur Shelby or greedy and cruel Simon Legree. The question of honour can outweight the question of survival for the greatest, the author says. Harrier Beecher Stowe provided the wold with the revolutionary story of true people and true monsters.Filled with vivid, realistic characters, crucial political concepts, and emotional descriptions, this book will touch your heart and haunt your imagination!
