libro evidentemente datato in alcuni passaggi ma molto interessante a livello storico, anche perché al momento in cui uscì era estremamente attuale

5.0 su 5 stelle The Hype is Real 15 febbraio 2016
Di Danetra King - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
Harriet Beecher Stowe’s, “Uncle Tom’s Cabin” is a book worth reading. Inside the cover of this old time favorite, Stowe easily takes readers inside the minds the slaves, the slave owners, and those with abolitionist-like minds. She skillfully winds you through the different paths of characters and creates a mostly satisfying conclusion. One that does leave a bit of grief, questioning and enlightenment on both the heart and mind.
I would not recommend this book to those who are quickly angered by racial slurs or degradation of any kind. I think one of the most difficult things for readers in the present will be remembering that for the time period of this book, that the language used was part of the culture.
I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to feel enlightened and full of hope, despite the hardship you must follow in order to feel them. Uncle Tom himself is a beacon of true light and he honestly made me want be a better person. This book is smart, real and oddly uplifting. Because of some of the language used, I only recommend this to readers 15 and up.
You will not regret reading this truly heart wrenching and yet, inspiring story.

5.0 su 5 stelle Such a powerful story! 3 gennaio 2017
Di TC - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
This story written so very long ago, so many of the situations and comments were topical and relevant to the current event of the time it was written, and yet this story still has something valuable to say to people living in our modern world.

That there is value in every life, that hope and faith (either or both) will pull you through almost any tragedy or any horrific situation that cold heartless and thoughtless humans can throw at a person.

It is most incredible to me that at the time of publishing, even the church was confident in stating that slavery was not so bad, that there were "good masters" and that incidents of cruelty and harm were rare. But they were blind and false in their conclusions. There may have been some kind masters but as was shown many times in the story, the slave's life with them was tenuous at best. A kind master's death or debt would invariably mean every possession would be sold. And each of his slaves were as much a chattel as his furniture. It is difficult to assimilate that attitude now. Families were routinely ripped apart, babies and children taken from mothers, husbands or wives taken and sold separately and told they should just forget their spouse and marry another. Horribly violent beatings and living conditions bad enough to demoralize anyone and destroy any hope of kindness or relief.

Only a few people stood out as having any kindness and love or actively did and said things that would improve the lives of the slaves.

The characters depicted, were drawn from true life and experiences of the author and those known to her. The most incredible incidences of the tale are also depicitons of true events and all this makes Uncle Tom's Cabin a story that is worth anyone's time.

Even without those elements of truth, the story rolls along with colourful descriptions of both character and place so as to bring the whole tale to life in a most realistic way.

I am so glad that I read this book. Harriet Beacher Stowe is an amazing storyteller and a powerful teacher for what is right, just and good.

5.0 su 5 stelle Lest We Forget! 25 ottobre 2014
Di brian rose - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
this title defies the rating process since it has stood for more than a century and a half as the quintessential novel about the gross injustices of the slave trade which defined American society in its formative years. Uncle Tom's Cabin reveals an insight, not only into the private lives of the slaves, but also those of the plantation owners and the traders themselves. It is difficult to comprehend that Americans considered themselves "civilized" while their society condoned such brutality and unethical practices.
Although the author's religious beliefs are entrenched in the story and indeed, become an overwhelming factor towards the end of the book, those same Christian tenets are nonetheless shown to be a source of supreme comfort to the protagonist who undergoes all manner of hardship and disappointment.
No doubt this story was, in part, responsible for the eventual abolition of slavery and again retold in the tumultuous years prior to the dismantling of legal segregation. May it stand as a reminder that subjugation has no place in a civilized world.
Lest We Forget!
5.0 su 5 stelle A novel with a notable societal impact 12 febbraio 2017
Di Regina W - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
Uncle Tom’s Cabin, the 1852 novel by Harriet Beecher Stowe, is a well-written book with a lot of societal impact tied to it. Uncle Tom’s Cabin is a fictional tale showing the cruelty inherent in the system of slavery, written in the hope of convincing its readers to turn their backs on slavery. The novel focuses on two main characters, Uncle Tom and Eliza, who are both slaves of the Shelby family. Their lives are suddenly thrown into mayhem when the Shelbys sell Tom and Eliza’s son Harry, and the rest of the novel deals with the aftermath of that decision. Uncle Tom’s Cabin saw huge success, and became well-known enough that it fostered a myth that Abraham Lincoln greeted Stowe, when they first met, by saying “So you’re the little woman who wrote the book that started this great war.” However, there were a lot of abolitionist writings circulating around the same time--what is it about Stowe’s book that made it stand out, to the point that it is still widely read across the U.S.? There are many factors behind this, but I think a large one is how Stowe effectively wove together different tactics--such as a more nuanced portrayal of slaveowners, an appeal to religion, and a strong emotional familial appeal--to convey her anti-slavery message.

Stowe’s representation of slavery, specifically slaveowners, had a certain amount of nuance. She made it a point to include slaveowners with varying levels of decency. There were, of course, the most appalling of the bunch: the brutal actions of Legree, who said he’d “break every bone in his [Tom’s] body, but he shall give up!”, and the slimy, uncaring slave trader Mr. Haley, who parted families without a second thought (338). However, Stowe also presents slave owners with a certain amount of decency and affection towards their slaves, such as the Shelbys, Tom’s original owners. The Shelbys even make it a point to teach their slaves to read, so they could read the Bible. Stowe further implies that in the northern slave-states, there are many with similar attitudes, saying, “Perhaps the mildest form of the system of slavery is to be seen in the State of Kentucky” (8). Despite this more favorable representation, however, Stowe cuts the Shelbys no slack; they are shown to be fully complicit in the immoralities of slavery, especially when they agree to sell Harry and Tom away from their families to get out of debt. They appear weak-willed in the book, as they break explicit promises to their slaves without even accepting full responsibility for this breach of trust and decency. Mr. Shelby even bemoans the decision he made, but even that isn’t enough to change his mind; he ultimately prioritizes money over human lives. Had Stowe depicted slaveowners as universally brutal, her writing could have been dismissed as a series of uninformed northern stereotypes about slavery. Her more nuanced, yet firmly condemning portrayal of slave owners allowed her to convey her message against slavery to a larger audience, with more of an effect.

Stowe also threads a strong religious appeal throughout Uncle Tom’s Cabin, strengthening her argument for her pre-Civil War readers, most of whom would have been religious. She starts this appeal by creating a community of Christian slaves belonging to the Shelbys. The Shelbys’ slaves read the Bible, and fervently take its teachings to heart; Uncle Tom even leads regular prayer meetings in his cabin. By depicting the slaves as upstanding, devout Christians, Stowe humanizes them, and makes their situation more unacceptable to the readers. Eliza clearly shows this religious devotion when she is advising her husband George to not “do anything wicked” on his escape; “if you only trust in God, and try to do right, he’ll deliver you” (15). I would even argue that Stowe sets up Uncle Tom as a kind of Christ figure; he is willing to be sold south as long as that means his family and the rest of the slaves are safe and get to stay with the Shelbys (85). He willingly sacrifices himself without a fight for the sake of those he loves.

Stowe’s religious background explains a lot about her frequent references to religion, and her choice to portray the slaves as devout Christians. Religion was a very large part of her life; her father was a well-known preacher, and her brothers also became preachers. If that wasn’t enough, she also married a preacher. It was her religious beliefs that led her to believe that slavery was wrong, and so it makes sense that she incorporated them so strongly in Uncle Tom’s Cabin. Writing these religious tones into the novel also shows that she was using a medium she knew well--it may not have been in a church, but she managed to preach her own message. These appeals to religion would have reverberated with her audience, most of whom would have been Christian themselves. Her story, and the weight attached to it due to her connections to respected preachers, caused her readers to analyze the issue of slavery through a different lens.

Stowe’s strongest literary tactic was, in my opinion, the strong emotional punch she was able to deliver. She focused very strongly on familial bonds, in particular the bond between mother and child. When Eliza finds out that her son will be sold away from her, she is devastated, and frantically acts to run away and avoid that situation. This response triggers a strong emotional response from the reader; it is hard to overlook the raw emotion in the novel and justify the cruel separation of families due to slavery. Stowe further drives this emotional scenario into the hearts of her readers by commenting, “If it were your Harry, mother, or your Willie, that were going to be torn from you by a brutal trader, to-morrow morning...how fast could you walk?” (46). This appeal to the emotions is so important for Stowe to emphasize that she breaks the 4th wall to do it. Statistics and logical arguments are important, but nothing sparks action more than a direct emotional appeal--in this case, the story of a young mother desperately trying everything she can to protect and stay with her child. This punch to the emotions is a key strength of Stowe’s novel.

Stowe’s strong literary tactics in Uncle Tom’s Cabin really helped her drive home her message of anti-slavery. They also contributed to the novel’s effect on society prior to the Civil War, and to its overall longevity as a novel. I would definitely recommend reading Uncle Tom’s Cabin.

5.0 su 5 stelle An "important" book and well written too 29 marzo 2014
Di Askold W. - Pubblicato su Amazon.com

A story of slavery written just before the civil war that has a very authentic ring to it (unlike books and articles written today with 150 years of filter). A very courageous book, when you consider what was happening in the US at that time.

The closing lines are prescient and chilling: "Both the North and South have been guilty before God; and the Christian church has a heavy account to answer .... injustice and cruelty shall bring on nations the wrath of Almighty God!"
