Uncle Tom's Cabin is a very important part of the American literary Experience. It was written shortly before the Civil War, and had an influence on the collective conscience which was an important part of the war. The story is powerfully written and it is easy to see why and how it influenced people when it first came out. In some ways it is overly religious and treats the African Americans of the story in an overly simplistic way, but nevertheless is a powerful indictment of the evils of slavery.
I recommend it highly. It should be read by everyone of college age or beyond. The only reason it shouldn't be read by high school students is that it is so long.
