In CliffsNotes on Uncle Tom's Cabin, you discover Harriet Beecher Stowe's most memorable and socially relevant novel -- a book that, when published in 1852, galvanized public opinion against slavery in a way never seen before. The story follows the lives of two slaves: Eliza, who escapes slavery with her son, and Tom, who must endure humiliation, abuse, and torture inflicted by his owners.

This study guide takes you though Eliza and Tom's journeys by providing summaries and commentaries on each chapter of the novel. Critical essays give you insight into the major themes of the novel, as well as the novel's structure and Gothic elements. Other features that help you study include

  • Character analyses of the main characters
  • A character map that graphically illustrates the relationships among the characters
  • A section on the life and background of Harriet Beecher Stowe
  • A review section that tests your knowledge
  • A Resource Center full of books, articles, films, and Internet sites

Classic literature or modern modern-day treasure — you'll understand it all with expert information and insight from CliffsNotes study guides.
