A Key to Uncle Tom's Cabin is a book by American author Harriet Beecher Stowe. It was published to document the veracity of the depiction of slavery in Stowe's anti-slavery novel Uncle Tom's Cabin (1852). First published in 1853 by Jewett, Proctor & Worthington, the book also provides insights into Stowe's own views on slavery. After the publication of Uncle Tom's Cabin, Southerners accused Stowe of misrepresenting slavery
The problem of the "Uncle Tom" stereotypes is soon overcome when we actually read the book. A second problem, one with a real basis in the book, might be called one of "political correctness. There are probably very few white Americans, if the truth were known, who do not harbor some prejudiced (or, put less kindly, racist) ideas about black people, and especially about African Americans. This was no doubt equally true in the 1850s, although the ideas may have been different. The daughter, sister, and wife of Protestant clergymen and a committed Christian herself, the writer lived at a time when many Americans assumed that the United States was "a Christian country" - and a Protestant country at that. To educate a person, in Stowe's usage, was to make a Christian of him or her, and she does not apologize for her Protestant chauvinism.
Uncle Tom’s Cabin was written for a specific purpose: to demonstrate the living dramatic reality of slavery, as Beecher Stowe put it. Many people, especially those in the North, did not know the day-to-day hardships of African Americans living in bondage, and literary works could provide these details in the form of exciting, dramatized stories. The Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass, a work of non-fiction, had similar ambitions and was also very popular among those wishing to learn more about slavery-and to find ways to eliminate the institution and liberate slaves in the South
Uncle Tom’s Cabin tells the story of Uncle Tom, depicted as a saintly, dignified slave.
