About the Author: Harriet Beecher Stowe

Harriet Elizabeth Beecher Stowe was an American author and abolitionist, whose novel Uncle Tom's Cabin (1852) attacked the cruelty of slavery; it reached millions as a novel and play, and became influential, even in Britain. It made the political issues of the 1850s regarding slavery tangible to millions, energizing anti-slavery forces in the American North. It angered and embittered the South. The impact is summed up in a commonly quoted statement apocryphally attributed to Abraham Lincoln. When he met Stowe, it is claimed that he said, "So you're the little woman that started this great war!"

Harriet Beecher Stowe was appalled by slavery, and she took one of the few options open to nineteenth-century women who wanted to affect public opinion: she wrote a novel, a huge, enthralling narrative that claimed the heart, soul, and politics of pre-Civil War Americans. An overtly moralistic work of unabashed propaganda, it is an attempt to make whites--North and South--see slaves as mothers, fathers, and children--as human beings. Her basic question remains penetrating even today: "Is man ever a creature to be trusted with wholly irresponsible power?" Uncle Tom's Cabin is an American classic that every American should read. Newly designed and typeset in a modern 6-by-9-inch format by Waking Lion Press.
