ONE READER S CONFUSION ABOUT WHY UNCLE TOM MEANS ANYTHING BUT HERO30 stars First I am glad I have finally read this book given its historical significance and the very positive impact that it had on American history That said from a literary perspective I didn t find this book to be particularly well written and am doubtful of whether it would be much remembered or considered a classic but for the aforementioned historical significance and the creation of the character of Uncle Tom on that below The prose is not horrible but neither is it exceptional It s just okay Since I assume everyone is familiar with the substance and background of the book I will not summarize it here Others have done a much bettermjob of it However I do want to share an observation about the main character Uncle Tom that struck me pretty hard Prior to reading this book if you would have asked me about the character of Uncle Tom I would have said that he was a character portrayed as a weak willed slave who did everything he could to please his white master no matter what abuses were heaped upon him This opinion wrong as I now think it is would have been based in large part on the derogatory nature of the term Uncle Tom in the African American community as someone who has sold out their heritage and beliefs in order to be successful After reading the book I don t think I can adeuately express how STRONGLY I disagree with that characterization I would place Uncle Tom among the pantheon of truly HEROIC figures in American literature Granted Tom was no Hollywood suare jaw who ard up and went Braveheart on the slave holders slaughtering them by the bushel However he was most definitely a HERO in the mold of Gandhi who NEVER ONCENEVER ONCE compromised his principals and belief in non violence and Tom CHANGED those around him both white and black for the better Tom s non violence came not from fear or cowardice but from his deeply held Christian faith and his belief that he would rather suffer unjustly as Christ did than raise a hand to another Whether you agree with that philosophy or not it is beyond debate that to accept hardship rather than compromise your inner compass is called INTEGRITYit s called COURAGE In one very memorable part of the book Tom is ordered by his sadistic slave owner to whip a female slave Tom refuses and is savagely beaten Thereafter Tom is repeatedly beaten because he continues to refuse to engage in conduct he finds reprehensible Despite this repeated abuse Tom NEVER NEVER backs down or compromises on his beliefs In fact the book goes on to describe the slave owner s realization that while he may own Tom s body he could never acuire his soul FOLKS FOR ME THAT IS A HERO How many people would subject themselves to that kind of abuse rather than rationalize their principals Reading that portion of the book I was struck by the similarities between that scene and a speech given by Gandhi in the movie with Ben Kingsley which I loved While speaking to a group of South African s about the need for non violent protest Gandhi says I am paraphrasing somewhat This is a cause for which I am prepared to fight but my friends there is no cause for which I am prepared to killHowever fear not for we can not loseThey can beat my body break my bones even kill methen they will have my dead body NOT MY OBEDIENCE I found Tom s struggle to be very similar and the character of Tom to be VERY HEROIC For that reason alone I bumped this up to 3 stars and HIGHLY RECOMMEND this book Fracture Management for the Small Animal Practitioner upon him

Talk of the abuses of slavery Humbug The thing itself is the essence of all abuse I remembered this uote from Uncle Tom s Cabin all of a sudden when I accidentally paraphrased it in a discussion on gun control at school Some issues can t be solved by half measures They have to be abolishedThere are books that shape who you are I remember when I first read Uncle Tom s Cabin as a young girl Before that I had only a vague idea of slavery in America as a historical phase something I imagined as an evil that was no With this novel I entered the world of rage Literature has the power to engage where statistics leave you cold it has the power to make you feel what other people feel and to see what abstract terms mean in real everyday lifeDecades later teaching slave trade and abolitionist movements in Humanities classes I still felt the anger the sorrow the shame And I realised that literature does that to you it gives you a social conscience if you are brave enough to compare notes and check your privileges The horrors of white supremacy can hardly be better told than in this tale of love and suffering and rage so shocking to read as a young adult and yet so necessary I shudder when I think of our current political climate of hostility and intolerance towards any human beings that are distinctly different from our own tribe And I feel both rage and sorrow as I know there are far too few adolescents today who are willing to put in the time and effort to read about historical brutality and injustice I shudder when I think that Anne Frank s diary is considered boring by my students too slow and lacking action read violence Where are we heading if we don t listen to the literary voices of those who experienced past horrors Where are we headed if we let profit and individual advantage stand above ethical behaviour and compassionate humanity Where are we headed if we don t think our rights apply to others as wellMake people desperate and they won t be afraid to fight Take away too much and they have nothing to lose and nothing to fear When it comes to human rights there can be no grey zones there can be no two class system no discrimination There can be no exemptions We are all eually entitled to a life in freedom and dignity Wherever we do not guarantee that there will be rage Beware of the signs in mainstream societyThe country is almost ruined with pious white people such pious politicians as we have just before elections such pious goings on in all departments of church and state that a fellow does not know who ll cheat him nextLet s not be cheated Let s look through the pious surface and see the egocentric hypocrites in their entitlement for what they are instigators of violence Let s do what is right by humankind rather than what is

Free download Uncle Tom's Cabin; or, Life Among the Lowly ☆ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Read & Download ´ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB µ 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. Book Review 4 out of 5 stars to Uncle Tom s Cabin written in 1852 by Harriet Beecher Stowe For some reason we didn t read this book in high school possibly an excerpt or two was thrown in front of us but I honestly don t really remember reading it until freshman year of college Prior to reading it the silly and uneducated man I was thought Ms Stowe was an African American telling the story about slavery in America not all that different from The Underground Railroad stories Please forgive me as I had difficulty reading books that showed the harsh slices of life and cruelties people suffered It just doesn t cross my mind that I could ever treat someone differently because of what they look like or where they came from and the immature part of me avoided reading about those who did But it s important to read these types of books as sometimes it is the only way to open another s eyesThen it was listed on our syllabus to read in our spring semester for an English course And I dove in since it was reuired As I got into it I realized how great the book actually was And you know what that s not the story at all Ms Stowe came from a Puritanical and religious family She was an abolitionist She wanted to fix the situation And this book was one way she attempted to do so by showing how any Christian could not believe in slavery Though some of her ideas were a little too vague and at times she may even cross the line by doing a few of the things she tells people not to do the book really shines a necessary light on what people were thinking at the time I feel like we might need to read this book again as a country to figure out what the hell we re doing going back 150 years in time But I don t get political so enough of thatWith this book you need to have some understanding of society religion and culture in America s history I wouldn t take it on without have a decent background in knowing how things came together from 1776 to 1856 Those 80 years were very strong but also very disparate two countries were forming not one in America Having some knowledge of Puritan life is helpful too Perhaps reading The Scarlet Letter first might give you some background Everyone needs to read this book just to see what was going on in some folks minds at this time It may not change your views on the entire situation but it will give you to think about when it comes to religion s place in government society and daily life And I mean that as a philosophical and sociological discussion not placing blame or positives and negatives on different groups of people It s just the kind of book to get you talking about something which needed to be radically changed and fixed About Me For those new to me or my reviews here s the scoop I read A LOT I write A LOT And now I blog A LOT First the book review goes on Goodreads and then I send it on over to my WordPress blog at where you ll also find TV Film reviews the revealing and introspective 365 Daily Challenge and lots of blogging about places I ve visited all over the world And you can find all my social media profiles to get the details on the whowhatwhenwhere and my pictures Leave a comment and let me know what you think Vote in the poll and ratings Thanks for stopping by
