9780393059465: The Annotated Uncle Tom's Cabin (The Annotated Books)

Henry Louis Gates Jr. redefines Uncle Tom's Cabin with this seminal interpretation of the great American novel.

Declared worthless and dehumanizing by James Baldwin in 1949, Uncle Tom's Cabin has lacked literary credibility for fifty years. Now, in a ringing refutation of Baldwin, Henry Louis Gates Jr. demonstrates the literary transcendence of Harriet Beecher Stowe's masterpiece. Uncle Tom's Cabin, first published in 1852, galvanized the American public as no other work of fiction has ever done. The editors animate pre-Civil War life with rich insights into the lives of slaves, abolitionists, and the American reading public. Examining the lingering effects of the novel, they provide new insights into emerging race-relation, women's, gay, and gender issues. With reproductions of rare prints, posters, and photographs, this book is also one of the most thorough anthologies of Uncle Tom images up to the present day.

Book Description W W Norton & Co Inc, Scranton, Pennsylvania, U.S.A., 2006. Hardcover. Book Condition: New. Dust Jacket Condition: New. Photographs and Illustrations (illustrator). First Edition. 4to - over 9¾ - 12" tall. Declared worthless and dehumanizing by the novelist and critic James Baldwin in 1955, Uncle Tom's Cabin has lacked literary credibility for over 50 years. Now, refuting Baldwin, Henry Louis Gates, Jr. and his coeditor Hollis Robbins affirm the literary transcendence of Harriet Beecher Stowe's 1852 masterpiece. They underscore that there has never been a single work of fiction that had a greater effect on American history than this book. They have provided a new, African-American perspective and discuss how Baldwin got it wrong. New readers of Uncle Tom's Cabin will be moved by the story of Eliza Harris, and in retracing Tom's stoic journey from Kentucky to Simon Legree's hellish plantation in New Orleans, generations of illustrators are simultaneously emasculating the character of Tom in his scenes with Little Eva and underscoring his inner strength when whipped by Legree. Particularly outstanding in this new edition is the visual presentation; the editors have compiled a comprehensive set of images that span the entire published history of the book, many in color. A historic work, not only an annotated edition, but in itself a history of racial and cultural attitudes and "the little woman" in Abraham Lincoln's words "who wrote the book that started this great war." Includes bibliography. Heavy volume. Bookseller Inventory # 003731
