Hi, I'm about to write a project based on the novel by Harriet Beecher Stowe - Uncle Tom's Cabin, and I'm looking for some themes in the book to analyse. For example I have a question about how different characters view the slavery, and how some of them develop throughout the story. I'm looking for another fact which could be interesting to look at, but I really don't know what... I've thought about religion in the novel, but I'm not sure about what kind of way to look at it at. Anyone who have some suggestions? - Sorry if this isn't the right place to post this at, if not, where then? Is there a good forum for questions like these? Thanks.
I am currently reading Uncle Tom's Cabin. It is so beautifully written!! I have heard about this book for some time. I thought it was just about the life of a slave and the trials and tribulations they suffered through, but it is so much more than that. It is about a man and his faith in God.....about trying to keep that faith alive when put through unspeakable things. This is the kind of faith I strive for......I love this book!!! Quote: "Ye said the Lord took sides against us, because he lets us be 'bused and knocked round; but ye see what come on his own Son,--the blessed Lord of Glory,--warn't he allays poor? and have we, any on us, yet come so low as he come? The Lord han't forgot us,--I'm sartin o' that ar'. If we suffer with him, we shall also reign, Scripture says: but, if we deny him, he also will deny us. Didn't they all suffer?--the Lord and all his? It tells how they was stoned and sawn asunder, and wandered about in sheep-skins and goat-skins, and was destitute, afflicted, tormented. Sufferin' an't no reason to make us think the Lord's turned agin us; but jest the contrary, if only we hold on to him, and doesn't give up to sin." I know I will read this book again!! I strongly recommend it!!:thumbs_up :thumbs_up :thumbs_up
No doubt it is a great novel, and well written, even entertaining, but it is fiction. They are not real people, it didn't happen, and it was written by a lady whose vision came through an abolitionist looking glass. It is not accurate, it is sensationalized, it was written to pull at the heart strings.
My brother and I (7th & 8th grades) are reading Uncle Tom's Cabin and would like to invite anyone interested to participate. Thanks!!!
I am feeling blessed to have read this...
I have this copy of Uncle Tom's Cabin or Life Amoung the Lowly by Harriet Beecher Stowe. It was printed in Philidelphia by the Henry Altemus Company. I have no idea when it was published though. I'm assuming some time between 1898 after Harriet Beecher Stowe died and 1906 (someone named Eloise B. Newman wrote their name and 1906 on the first page that's where I get that from). There is no copy right date in this book though. The book is in decent condition with some wear and tear but none of the pages are missing or ruined. If you know anything about this edition would you let me know. I'm curious to find out more. I've tried to find stuff online but I haven't found any copies with this cover. Dimensions 6 1/4 inches high by 4 inches wide by 1 1/4 inches thick. It has 634 pages.
Would the person who found the book in his/her cornfield, please e-mail me? I would greatly appreciate it. I'm curious about how you came upon the book in your field and where you live. Thank you. LeAnn Wilcox [email protected]
This book is written so well that I think that she should have written other books. I think that every body should read this book.
I really enjoy the book by Harriet Stowe even though some of the stuff make you think back and realize that you are blessed to live the way you are now and not as someone's slave. But over all I think the movie is great.
