Sample text

Stowe meant for her readers to identify Tom with Christ, and because of her dramatically effective depiction of Tom's unjust murder and his unyielding goodness, her novel became a sort of Bible for the Abolitionists. Uncle Tom's death served as the graphic epitomy of her indictment against slavery. She believed that it was impossible to be a true Christian and also a slave owner. Tom was a victim of the evil Simon Legree, but, by extension, all slaves were victims of a "Christian" social system that allowed a master/slave relationship.

They frustrate Haley by self-caricaturing themselves as the slow-moving, slow-witted black half-humans that Haley believes them to be. Like a frustrated villain in a "mellerdrammer," Haley stamps and curses and swears. He doesn't know what has happened, but we do: the blacks have bested him. Chapters 7-9 Summary After leaving Uncle Tom's cabin, Eliza lovingly clutches the still- Page 33 sleeping Harry to her breast and runs, aimlessly, simply running away, heading North, and praying all the while.

After Tom dies, George sees that he is buried in a peaceful, shady spot, and then he boards a steamboat, bound for Kentucky. On board the ship, he meets Cassy and Emmeline, who have fled Legree's plantation. They, in turn, meet a Madame de Thoux, and they all discover that Madame de Thoux is George Harris' sister, and that Cassy is the mother of Eliza, who was snatched away from Cassy and sold years ago. Shelby leaves the steamboat in Kentucky and returns to his plantation and frees his slaves.
