Sample text

Discussing the matter with Mr. Haley, a villainous Southern slave trader, Haley chooses, first, Uncle Tom, Shelby's favorite and most loyal slave, and then Haley chooses little Harry, a beautiful and talented child about five years old. Shelby is deeply reluctant to sell Uncle Tom, and he dislikes separating Harry from his mother, but because of his enormous debts, he has no other choice. Eliza, Harry's mother, overhears Mr. Shelby and his wife arguing over the ''rightness" of what Shelby must do, and so Eliza decides to do what she must do: she gathers little Harry up, slips out into the night, and stops at Uncle Tom's cabin and tries to convince Uncle Tom that he must come with her.

George Harris and his family eventually travel to Liberia, along with Cassy; Topsy returns to Vermont with Miss Ophelia, and Stowe ends the novel with a long chapter about the cruel and unchristian institution of slavery. '' Stowe is referring, of course, to the black race, which in her day was believed to be inferior to the so-called "polite and refined" white society. Stowe intends to write an exposé of how the blacks have been unjustly and unfairly treated by the whites. Second, she states that this novel is not a novel.

Someday, fate will strike Harry and when that happens, the consequences will pierce through Eliza's soul. With terrible foreboding, Eliza remembers the sinister slave trader in Mr. Shelby's dining-parlor. Commentary In these two chapters, Stowe is concerned that we recognize the rightness of George's anger, although it is dangerously intense anger. George is being punished for two reasons onlybecause he is black and because he is smarter than his master, and both men know it. " That is, he questions the entire concept of slavery, and for a black man to do that was both revolutionary and, to most whites, blasphemy.
