About this ebook

Publié aux États-Unis en 1851, "La Case de l'oncle Tom" est un magnifique plaidoyer de l'écrivaine américaine Harriet Beecher Stowe contre l'esclavage qui devint rapidement, avec la guerre de Sécession, "le" classique de l'anti-racisme.

Au 19e siècle, dans le Kentucky, une famille endettée est obligée de vendre Tom, son meilleur esclave. Celui-ci, malgré la douleur d'être séparé des siens, accepte son destin avec résignation. Persuadé que Dieu lui viendra en aide, et que la justice peut sauver le cœur des hommes, il ne perdra jamais confiance.

La Case de l'oncle Tom

Harriet Beecher Stowe

Harriet Beecher Stowe was an American author and abolitionist. Born in Litchfield, Connecticut, she was raised in a deeply religious family and educated in a seminary school run by her elder sister. In her adult life, Stowe married biblical scholar and abolitionist Calvin Ellis Stowe, who would later go on to work as Harriet’s literary agent, and the two participated in the Underground Railroad by providing temporary refuge for escaped slaves travelling to the American North. Shortly before the outbreak of the American Civil War, Stowe published her most famous work, Uncle Tom’s Cabin, a stark and sympathetic depiction of the desperate lives of African American slaves. The book went on to see unprecedented sales, and informed American and European attitudes towards abolition. In the years leading up to her death, suffering from dementia or Alzheimer’s disease, Stowe is said to have begun re-writing Uncle Tom’s Cabin, almost word-for-word, believing that she was writing the original manuscript once again. Stowe died in July 1, 1896 at the age of eighty-five.
