Today we invite the members of Z’s Book Club to discuss one of the most dramatic works of American literature able to draw tears from the most unsentimental readers!
Slavery is probably the saddest, cruelest, most tragic and hard-to-forget part of American literature that claimed the lives of thousands of people, destroyed hundreds of families, and has left an indelible mark on the life of a whole country. The novel “Uncle Tom’s cabin” written by Harriet Beecher Stowe in 1852 came as a bombshell and helped American society acknowledge its mistakes and correct them. The story of Uncle Tom is dreadful and sorrowful in whatever light we view it – slaves in the book are put into inhuman living conditions and literary have to fight for their own lives and the lives of their children. Families are broken, little babies are killed, women are abused, men suffer constant beating – this is just a small part of all the horror described by the author in her novel.
