Stowe as a revolter from the enemy. A French edition, translated by M.
Carion or by [Anne-]Louise Swanton-Belloc? As the first widely read political novel in the United States,  Uncle Tom's Cabin greatly influenced development of not only American literature but also protest literature in general. Despite this undisputed significance, Uncle Tom's Cabin has been called "a blend of children's fable and propaganda. Stowe or her handiwork can account for the novel's enormous vogue; its author's resources as a purveyor of Sunday-school fiction were not remarkable.
She had at most a ready command of broadly conceived melodrama, humor, and pathos, and of these popular sentiments she compounded her book. Other critics, though, have praised the novel. Over the years scholars have postulated a number of theories about what Stowe was trying to say with the novel aside from the obvious themes, such as condemning slavery.
For example, as an ardent Christian and active abolitionist, Stowe placed many of her religious beliefs into the novel. Was the use of violence to oppose the violence of slavery and the breaking of proslavery laws morally defensible?
God's will would be followed if each person sincerely examined his principles and acted on them. Scholars have also seen the novel as expressing the values and ideas of the Free Will Movement.
In contrast to Ophelia is Dinah, who operates on passion.
During the course of the novel Ophelia is transformed, just as the Republican Party three years later proclaimed that the North must transform itself and stand up for its antislavery principles. Feminist theory can also be seen at play in Stowe's book, with the novel as a critique of the patriarchal nature of slavery.
Moreover, Stowe viewed national solidarity as an extension of a person's family, thus feelings of nationality stemmed from possessing a shared race. Consequently, she advocated African colonization for freed slaves and not amalgamation into American society.
The book has also been seen as an attempt to redefine masculinity as a necessary step toward the abolition of slavery. In order to change the notion of manhood so that men could oppose slavery without jeopardizing their self-image or their standing in society, some abolitionists drew on principles of women's suffrage and Christianity as well as passivism, and praised men for cooperation, compassion, and civic spirit.
Others within the abolitionist movement argued for conventional, aggressive masculine action. All the men in Stowe's novel are representations of either one kind of man or the other. Modern scholars and readers have criticized the book for what are seen as condescending racist descriptions of the book's black characters, especially with regard to the characters' appearances, speech, and behavior, as well as the passive nature of Uncle Tom in accepting his fate.
Among the stereotypes of blacks in Uncle Tom's Cabin are  the "happy darky" in the lazy, carefree character of Sam ; the light-skinned tragic mulatto as a sex object in the characters of Eliza, Cassy, and Emmeline ; the affectionate, dark-skinned female mammy through several characters, including Mammy, a cook at the St.
Clare plantation ; the pickaninny stereotype of black children in the character of Topsy ; the Uncle Tom, an African American who is too eager to please white people. Stowe intended Tom to be a "noble hero". The stereotype of him as a "subservient fool who bows down to the white man" evidently resulted from staged " Tom Shows ", over which Stowe had no control. These negative associations have to a large degree overshadowed the historical impact of Uncle Tom's Cabin as a "vital antislavery tool".
In the essay, Baldwin called Uncle Tom's Cabin a "very bad novel" which was also racially obtuse and aesthetically crude. In recent years, however, scholars such as Henry Louis Gates Jr. This so-called Anti-Tom literature generally took a pro-slavery viewpoint, arguing that the issues of slavery as depicted in Stowe's book were overblown and incorrect. The novels in this genre tended to feature a benign white patriarchal master and a pure wife, both of whom presided over childlike slaves in a benevolent extended family style plantation.
The novels either implied or directly stated that African Americans were a childlike people  unable to live their lives without being directly overseen by white people. Simms' book was published a few months after Stowe's novel, and it contains a number of sections and discussions disputing Stowe's book and her view of slavery.
Hentz's novel, widely read at the time but now largely forgotten, offers a defense of slavery as seen through the eyes of a northern woman—the daughter of an abolitionist, no less—who marries a southern slave owner.
In the decade between the publication of Uncle Tom's Cabin and the start of the American Civil Warbetween twenty and thirty anti-Tom books were published. Smith and the other by C. Wiley and a book by John Pendleton Kennedy. More than half of these anti-Tom books were written by white women, with Simms commenting at one point about the "Seemingly poetic justice of having the Northern woman Stowe answered by a Southern woman. Even though Uncle Tom's Cabin was the best-selling novel of the 19th century, far more Americans of that time saw the story as a stage play or musical than read the book.
Racial Melodrama and Modes of Productionestimates that at least three million people saw these plays, ten times the book's first-year sales. Given the lax copyright laws of the time, stage plays based on Uncle Tom's Cabin —"Tom shows"—began to appear while the novel was still being serialized.
Stowe refused to authorize dramatization of her work because of her distrust of drama although she did eventually go to see George L.
Aiken 's version and, according to Francis Underwood, was "delighted" by Caroline Howard's portrayal of Topsy. No international copyright laws existed at the time.
The book and plays were translated into several languages; Stowe received no money, which could have meant as much as "three fourths of her just and legitimate wages. All Tom shows appear to have incorporated elements of melodrama and blackface minstrelsy. The version by Aiken is perhaps the best known stage adaptation, released just a few months after the novel was published. This six-act behemoth also set an important precedent by being the first show on Broadway to stand on its own, without the performance of other entertainments or any afterpiece.
This reliance led to large sets and set a precedent for the future days of film. The many stage variants of Uncle Tom's Cabin "dominated northern popular culture Mickey's Mellerdrammer is a United Artists film released in The title is a corruption of "melodrama", thought to harken back to the earliest minstrel showsas a film short based on a production of Uncle Tom's Cabin by the Disney characters.
Mickey Mouse was already black-colored, but the advertising poster for the film shows Mickey dressed in blackface with exaggerated, orange lips; bushy, white sidewhiskers made out of cotton; and his trademark white gloves. Uncle Tom's Cabin has been adapted several times as a film. Most of these movies were created during the silent film era Uncle Tom's Cabin was the most-filmed book of that time period. The first film version of Uncle Tom's Cabin was one of the earliest full-length movies although full-length at that time meant between 10 and 14 minutes. Porterused white actors in blackface in the major roles and black performers only as extras.
This version was evidently similar to many of the "Tom Shows" of earlier decades and featured numerous stereotypes about blacks such as having the slaves dance in almost any context, including at a slave auction. Ina three-reel Vitagraph Company of America production was directed by J. Stuart Blackton and adapted by Eugene Mullin. According to The Dramatic Mirrorthis film was "a decided innovation" in motion pictures and "the first time an American company" released a dramatic film in three reels. Until then, full-length movies of the time were 15 minutes long and contained only one reel of film.
At least four more movie adaptations were created in the next two decades. The last silent film version was released in Directed by Harry A. The black actor Charles Gilpin was originally cast in the title role, but he was fired after the studio decided his "portrayal was too aggressive. Lowe took over the character of Tom.
The screenplay takes many liberties with the original book, including altering the Eliza and George subplot, introducing the Civil War and Emancipation, and combining the characters of Eliza and Emmeline. Simon Legree is haunted by an apparitional vision of the late Tom and falls to his death in a futile effort to attack the ghostly image.
Black media outlets of the time praised the film, but the studio—fearful of a backlash from Southern and white film audiences—ended up cutting out controversial scenes, including the film's opening sequence at a slave auction in which a mother is torn away from her baby.
Pollard, Thew and A. Youngerwith titles by Walter Anthony. It starred James B. For several decades after the end of the silent film era, the subject matter of Stowe's novel was judged too sensitive for further film interpretation. InMetro-Goldwyn-Mayer considered filming the story but ceased production after protests led by the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People. The most recent film version was a television broadcast indirected by Stan Lathan and adapted by John Gay.
Jackson and Endyia Kinney. In addition to film adaptations, versions of Uncle Tom's Cabin have been produced in other formats. This controversial film set the dramatic climax in a slave cabin similar to that of Uncle Tom, where several white Southerners unite with their former enemy Yankee soldiers to defend, according to the film's caption, their " Aryan birthright.

Louis, a well-known abolitionistconnected the Scotts to their first lawyer. The Scott children were around the age of ten at the time the case was originally filed, which was the age when younger slaves became more valuable assets for slave owners to sell. To avoid the family from breaking up, Harriet urged Dred to take action.

Because more than a year elapsed from the time of the initial petition filing until the trial, Drake moved away from St. Louis during that time. Bay tried the case in court. Emerson was ruled to be hearsay. However, the judge called for a retrial, which was finally held in January This time, direct evidence was introduced that Emerson owned Scott, and the jury ruled in favor of Scott's freedom.
Inthe Missouri Supreme Court struck down the lower court ruling, arguing that growing antislavery sentiment in the free states made it no longer necessary for Missouri to defer to the laws of free states. Gamblewho was later appointed governor of the state, sharply disagreed with the majority decision and wrote a dissenting opinion.
InScott again sued, this time under federal law. Because Sanford was a citizen of New York, while Scott would be a citizen of Missouri if he were free, the Federal courts had diversity jurisdiction over the case. The name is spelled "Sandford" in the court decision due to a clerical error. Taney delivered the majority opinion.
The Court had ruled that African Americans had no claim to freedom or citizenship.
Since they were not citizens, they did not possess the legal standing to bring suit in a federal court. As slaves were private property, Congress did not have the power to regulate slavery in the territories and could not revoke a slave owner's rights based on where he lived. This decision nullified the essence of the Missouri Compromise, which divided territories into jurisdictions either free or slave.
Speaking for the majority, Taney ruled that because Scott was simply considered the private property of his owners, he was subject to the Fifth Amendment to the United States Constitutionprohibiting the taking of property from its owner "without due process".
The Scott decision increased tensions between pro-slavery and anti-slavery factions in both North and South, further pushing the country towards the brink of civil war. Ultimately, the 14th Amendment to the Constitution settled the issue of Black citizenship via Section 1 of that Amendment: Scott's freedom suit before the state courts was backed financially by Peter Blow's children, who had turned against slavery in the decade since they sold Dred Scott.
