About the Author:
Harriet Beecher Stowe was born in 1811, one of ten children of famous minister Lyman Beecher. She moved to Ohio in 1832 and was introduced to the slavery debates, marrying the professor and staunch abolitionist Calvin Stowe with whom she had seven children. In 1850 the Fugitive Slave Law was passed, punishing anyone who offered runaway slaves food or shelter - she drew on her anger from this to write Uncle Tom's Cabin, which first appeared in an abolitionist newspaper and was then published in book form. It was an immediate bestseller, selling ten thousand copies in its first week of publication and going on to become the second biggest bestseller of the nineteenth century after the Bible. It was hugely influential in the abolition debate, and catapulted Stowe into the spotlight. When President Abraham Lincolm met her he is reported to have described her as `the little woman who wrote the book that started this Great War'. Over the course of her long career she wrote over thirty books and essays, poems and articles. She died in 1896.
Review:
"Its power is that it never makes light of slavery and its attendant vast misery" -- John Updike * New Yorker * "A century and a half since its publication, Uncle Tom's Cabin retains a fascination for Americans... it stoked a furious hostility among many Americans to the continuation of slavery in their own Southern states" * Daily Telegraph * "The novel's impact was global... Among those who hailed it as a masterpiece were Ivan Turgenev, Victor Hugo, Leo Tolstoy and George Eliot" -- Gary Younge * Guardian * "Explosive" * Economist *
