Slavery as the Peculiar Institution: Uncle Tom’S Cabin.

14818. Slavery as the Peculiar Institution: Uncle Tom’S Cabin.

This paper examines “the peculiar institution” of slavery as the context of Harriet Beecher Stowe’s 1952 novel, to support Stowe’s argument that this was not a “benevolent form of paternalism” toward an “inferior race,” but a moral contagion and a blight upon the conscience of Christian American that should and would be abolished in time. Argues that Stowe did believe that blacks and whites could some day live together in harmony, if only whites would adopt the true faith and godliness of Protestantism, and “raise up” blacks into the education, religion and industry of the white European civilization. KEYWORDS: book review fiction race black whites southern uncle toms cabin harriet beecher stowe. 11 pages, 10 footnotes, 1 bibliographic source. 2,584 words.
