Product Description

Setting Uncle Tom's Cabin into the larger historical context, Mightier than the Sword looks at Harriet Beecher's Stowe's mix of Puritan upbringing and visionary religious enthusiasm, the regular biblical-justifications used for Christians slaveowners at the time, the cult of domesticity and the criticisms Stowe endured for looking "beyond maternity," and the sources for her famous characters. Examining the writing of the novel, its time of influence, and responses to its messages during the war, reconstruction, and up through the present-day, discover the history of race-relations in the US through the prism of the book that "started this great war." 351 pages, indexed, softcover.
