Uncle Tom's Cabin revisited in e-book
on 4 June 2015
A wonderful and informing work on the plight of the American plantation slaves, with a strong religious content that illustrates the ways in which faith played a role in the lives of those with no hope of a better life in this world.
The very words that the "Masters" hoped would confirm the subjection of the "slave" to the "Master", served to give them a hope beyond their living death in this world. The difference between the minority humane "owners" and the bestial majority of the "owners" is brought home starkly and poignantly through the several threads of this great book.
Whilst the language is archaic in places, and the images often Victorian in their pathos, it is very worthwhile reading. A good on-line dictionary will be invaluable and reward consultation, for many unusual words are used and they always have a specific meaning.
