The key to Uncle Tom's cabin by Harriet Beecher Stowe( Book )
136 editions published between 1852 and 2015 in 5 languages and held by 2,507 libraries worldwide
"In 1852 Harriet Beecher Stowe published Uncle Tom's Cabin, an instant classic that received overwhelming acclaim by Northerners and other abolitionist readers. Southerners, conversely, strongly denied the novel's accuracy. The following year Stowe answered pro-slavery critics with this unique bestseller, a meticulous and thoughtful defense of her work, which cites real-life equivalents to her characters. Southern readers were further incensed by this follow-up volume, their wrath in no small part inflamed by a Yankee woman's presuming to tell men what to think. A critical aspect of Stowe's Key is her critique of the law's support of not only the institution of slavery but also the mistreatment of individual slaves. As in the original novel, her challenge extends beyond slavery to the law itself. American society's first widely read political novel, Uncle Tom's Cabin influenced the development of the nation's literature, particularly in terms of protest writing. This supplement to the novel offers valuable insights into a historical and literary landmark"--
Oldtown folks by Harriet Beecher Stowe( Book )
124 editions published between 1869 and 2012 in 5 languages and held by 2,304 libraries worldwide
"My object is to interpret to the world the New England life and character in that particular time of its history which may be called the seminal period. New England has always been a capital country to emigrate from, and North, South, East and West have been populated largely from New England, so that the seed-bed of New England was the seed-bed of this great American Republic, and of all that is likely to come of it."--Preface

Dred : a tale of the great Dismal Swamp by Harriet Beecher Stowe( Book )
202 editions published between 1856 and 2013 in 8 languages and held by 1,916 libraries worldwide
"Written partly in response to the criticisms of Uncle Tom's Cabin by both white Southerners and black abolitionists, Dred (1856) extends the plantation novel to examine, in the words of its author, "the views and reasonings of those who have bowed down to the yoke, and felt the iron enter into their souls." Through the compelling stories of Nina Gordon, the mistress of a slave plantation, and Dred, a black revolutionary, Stowe brings to life the conflicting beliefs about race, the institution of slavery, and the need for the radical action that erupted during the 1850s. Exploring the political and spiritual goals that fuel Dred's rebellion, she creates a figure far different from the acquiescent Christian martyr, Uncle Tom."--Jacket

The pearl of Orr's Island; a story of the coast of Maine by Harriet Beecher Stowe( Book )
138 editions published between 1861 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,598 libraries worldwide
"The rural tranquillity of the lonely, pine-girthed shores of the Maine coast is the setting for this beautiful novel of conflicting aspirations written by one of the most prolific and influential writers in American history. Here is the heartwarming story of a young girl's struggle to belong and fit in, in the face of adversity, and of her upbringing among strong women, grumpy fishermen, annoying gossips, sea captains, and the dreamlike, temptestuous landscape of Orr's Island." --Google books
The American woman's home by Catharine Esther Beecher( Book )
66 editions published between 1869 and 2010 in English and German and held by 1,552 libraries worldwide
The American woman's home, originally published in 1869, was one of the late nineteenth century's most important handbooks of domestic advice. The result of a collaboration by two of the era's most important writers, this book represents their attempt to direct women's acquisition and use of a dizzying variety of new household consumer goods available in the post-Civil War economic boom. It updates Catharine Beecher's influential Treatise on domestic economy (1841) and incorporates domestic writings by Harriet Beecher Stowe first published in The Atlantic in the 1860s. Today, the book can be likened to an anthology of household hints, with articles on cooking, decorating, housekeeping, child-rearing, hygiene, gardening, etiquette, and home amusements. The American woman's home illuminates women's roles a century and a half ago and can be used for comparison with modern theories on the role of women in the home and in society
Uncle Tom's cabin : authoritative text, backgrounds and contexts, criticism by Harriet Beecher Stowe( Book )
17 editions published between 1994 and 2010 in English and held by 1,040 libraries worldwide
An international bestseller that sold more than 300,000 copies when it first appeared in 1852, Uncle Tom's Cabin was dismissed by some as abolitionist propaganda; yet Tolstoy deemed it a great work of literature "flowing from love of God and man." Today, however, Harriet Beecher Stowe's stirring indictment of slavery is often confused with garish dramatizations that flourished for decades after the Civil War: productions that relied heavily on melodramatic simplifications of character totally alien to the original. Thus "Uncle Tom" has become a pejorative term for a subservient black, whereas Uncle Tom in the book is a man who, under the most inhumane of circumstances, never loses his human dignity. This edition includes a guide to reading "Uncle Tom's Cabin" with a critical and appreciative mind encouraging analysis of plot, style, form, and structure. Also includes background on the author's life and times, sample tests, term paper suggestions, and a reading list
Lady Byron vindicated; a history of the Byron controversy, from its beginning in 1816 to the present time by Harriet Beecher Stowe( Book )
41 editions published between 1870 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 834 libraries worldwide
While traveling in England, Harriet Beecher Stowe met the widow of Romantic poet George Gordon, Lord Byron. They became friends and correspondents. It was from Lady Byron that Beecher Stowe learned previously undisclosed details about the poet's rumored incest with his half sister more than 50 years prior. After Lady Byron's death and the subsequent publishing of a memoir by Lord Byron's former mistress, Beecher Stowe decided to publish his widow's side of the story. She first wrote an article in The Atlantic Monthly magazine in 1869 titled "The True Story of Lady Byron's Life" and, after it caused an uproar, decided to follow-up with this full-length book. The publication of this volume, especially in light of the fact that the poet had been deceased for nearly half a century, may have dredged up more controversy for Beecher Stowe than it did for Lord Byron!
My wife and I: or, Harry Henderson's history by Harriet Beecher Stowe( Book )
82 editions published between 1861 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 689 libraries worldwide
The inspiration for the character of Tom Bolton in this novel was Harriet Beecher Stowe's son, Frederick. Frederick fought for the Union in the Civil War and had problems with alcohol for many years. Once home from the war, he became a severe alcoholic. In 1870, he traveled to California, disappeared shortly thereafter and was presumed dead. Beecher Stowe's portrayal in this book, published two years later, of alcoholism as a disease and not as a moral or social failing is unusual for its time. Also notable for its time, the novel makes a case for a woman's right to a career
Pink and white tyranny : a society novel by Harriet Beecher Stowe( Book )
81 editions published between 1870 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 683 libraries worldwide
"Pink and White Tyranny" is a comedy of manners on the institution of marriage in the nineteenth century. Lillie Ellis, a professional belle, has been spoiled, petted, and flattered since the day she was born. When she tricks the adoring and upright John Seymour into marriage, it is unclear who is the victim and who is the victimizer
Agnes of Sorrento by Harriet Beecher Stowe( Book )
96 editions published between 1862 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 641 libraries worldwide
The heroine of this 1862 historical novel is Agnes, a country girl living amidst the spiritual tranquility of an Italian convent. With her hand sought by a cast-out Italian prince, she is torn between the prospect of love and her sense of duty to the charismatic monk Savonarola, the instigator of the original and actual fifteenth-century "Bonfire of the Vanities."
Poganuc people: their loves and lives by Harriet Beecher Stowe( Book )
59 editions published between 1878 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 607 libraries worldwide
Best known for Uncle Tom's Cabin, her classic depiction of slavery that crysalized sentiment in the abolitionist cause, Harriet Beecher Stowe was also the author of this lesser-known but wonderfully rich reminiscence of life in early 19th century New England. Poganuc People was Stowe's last novel
