About the Authors
  • Through the publication of her bestseller Uncle Tom's Cabin, Harriet Beecher Stowe became one of the most internationally famous and important authors in nineteenth-century America. Today, her reputation is more complex, and Uncle Tom's Cabin has been debated and analysed in many different ways. This book provides a summary of Stowe's life and her long career as a professional author, as well as an overview of her writings in several different genres. Synthesizing scholarship from a range of perspectives, the book positions Stowe's work within the larger framework of nineteenth-century culture and attitudes about race, slavery and the role of women in society. Sarah Robbins also offers reading suggestions for further study. This introduction provides students of Stowe with a richly informed and accessible introduction to this fascinating author.

    • Explores the context of Uncle Tom's Cabin but also covers Stowe's other, lesser known works
    • Synthesises major scholarship on Stowe for a student reader coming to Stowe for the first time
    • Explains the controversies surrounding Uncle Tom's Cabin and race

    Reviews & endorsements

    "Robbin's text surpasses other introductory resources in its combination of depth and accessibility and in its commitment to making legible, for an audience of nonspecialists, the larger problems and implications of Stowe's work."
    Nancy F. Sweet, The New England Quarterly
