Harriet Beecher Stowe's Uncle Tom's Cabin

A Casebook

Edited by Elizabeth Ammons

Casebooks in Criticism

The Casebooks in Criticism introduce readers to the essential criticism on landmark works of literature and film. Most of the best criticism on Stowe's landmark novel is fairly recent. Today, Uncle Tom's Cabin is a stable, important part of the nineteenth-century American literature canon and has generated a rich body of new critical work. This casebook collects the best of the new scholarship as well as the most influential older essays. Included in this volume are letters by Harriet Beecher Stowe and articles by James Baldwin, Leslie Fiedler, Jane Tompkins, Gillian Brown, Robert Stepto, and Elizabeth Ammons.
