Uncle Tom 's Cabin, written by Harriet Beecher Stowe, has had a huge impact on American literature, since it was published in 1852. This novel, the second-best selling book just after the Bible, had over 300,000 copies sold after the first year. Uncle Tom 's Cabin caused so much controversy when it was published because of its anti-slavery views. The impact of this book on the issue of slavery was very powerful that when President Lincoln met Stowe, he supposedly said, "So this is the little lady who made this big war." Today, however, many believe Stowe 's attempts to expose the horrors of slavery ended up romanticizing this horrible occurrence and was seemingly racist through the use of many racial slurs.
She had hoped it would convince the South and the North that slavery was wrong, but sadly more people supported slavery then against. Her family’s abolitionists beliefs and activity in the “ Underground Railroad” directed her to where she was in 1852 when she wrote a novel telling the stories of three slaves that would split the country into controversy. Uncle Tom’s Cabin told the stories of Uncle Tom, Eliza, and George. In her book Harriet displayed the struggles of runaway slaves and the troubles black slaves had to face everyday with slavery. In only two weeks it’s popularity had grew and it became the outbreak of the nation.
This book is mature, which can be the reason why so many people decline his work. He focused on a time when African Americans were treated badly; he brought this to his novel which brought him bad publicity. You can argue that it is racist but in reality Twain is using the real language of the time to capture and portray the South at the time, and how blacks were being treated. Throughout the novel the word “nigger” is used quite frequently by white southerners. Many people believe that way Twain being racist but that

The two sides were already at each other’s throats with civil idea differences, land ownership issues, and a passion for the same subject: slavery. This convoluted case only made the water boil more. Tension throughout America tightened as yet another civil rights case went in favor of the white man. As previously stated, racism has been a part of America’s history since our ancestors settled here years ago. African Americans used as slaves and not recognized as real people was a daily behavior.
While learning to read and write ultimately helped him escape, it caused him suffering beforehand. More thorough understanding of slavery made him angrier with his masters, less satisfied with complacency, and more anguished at his position. What he read was liberating and crushing simultaneously, and he detailed this ironic duality in describing his anguished emotions at the time. The writings themselves also prompted discussion of the irony in hypocritically oppressive slave owners who claim to be Americans for freedom and Christians for equality but force the opposites on slaves. Describing his stressful emotions, which happened to be situationally ironic, creates an effective emotional appeal to sympathy similar to the childhood chapters.
These norms include the idea that slavery is a good thing, and that African Americans should not be treated as equals. When Huck and Jim first encounter each other, Huck plays many pranks on Jim because he believes what society has told him about slaves. As the story unfolds, however, Huck goes against society’s rules and
Proclaimed Christians supporting slavery through owning slaves and treating African-Americans as if they are not people continues the cycle of destruction by impairing family structures. And deteriorates a person’s body and spirits. Therefore, the method of pathos through Stowe speaking on Harris’s damaged family structure at a young age and descriptive use of language becomes critical for the audience to make a connection with him. It becomes deliberate in this scene so readers can come to terms that slavery is immoral instead of people focusing a person being African-American during that
