The Annotated Uncle Tom's Cabin, Hardback Book

The Annotated Uncle Tom's Cabin Hardback

Edited by Henry Louis, Jr. Gates, Hollis Robbins

Part of the The Annotated Books series

Description

Declared worthless and dehumanizing by James Baldwin in 1949, Uncle Tom's Cabin has lacked literary credibility for fifty years.

Now, in a ringing refutation of Baldwin, Henry Louis Gates Jr. demonstrates the literary transcendence of Harriet Beecher Stowe's masterpiece.

Uncle Tom's Cabin, first published in 1852, galvanized the American public as no other work of fiction has ever done.

The editors animate pre-Civil War life with rich insights into the lives of slaves, abolitionists, and the American reading public.

Examining the lingering effects of the novel, they provide new insights into emerging race-relation, women's, gay, and gender issues.

With reproductions of rare prints, posters, and photographs, this book is also one of the most thorough anthologies of Uncle Tom images up to the present day.
