Uncle Toms Cabin





Uncle Tom’s Cabin
Harriet Beecher Stowe



UNCLE TOM -Uncle Tom manages the Shelby plantation. Strong, intelligent,
capable, good, and kind, he is the most heroic figure in the novel that bears his name. Tom's most
important characteristic is his Christian faith. God has given Tom an extraordinary ability. He can forgive
the evil done to him. His self-sacrificing love for others has been called motherly. It has also been called
truly Christian.

AUNT CHLOE- Aunt Chloe, Uncle Tom's wife, is fat, warm, and jolly. She is a good housekeeper
and a superb cook, and justly proud of her skill. She loves Tom, and urges him to escape to Canada rather
than to go South with Haley. After Tom is sold, she convinces the Shelbys to hire her out to a baker in
Louisville and to use her wages to buy Tom's freedom. She is heartbroken to learn of his death.
-

MOSE, PETE, AND POLLY - Mose, Pete, and Polly, the children of Uncle Tom and Aunt
Chloe, are playful and rambunctious. Polly is Tom's special favorite, and she loves to bury her tiny hands in
his hair.
ELIZA HARRIS - Eliza Harris is raised by her mistress, Mrs. Shelby, to be pious
and good. Described as light-skinned and pretty, Eliza dearly loves her husband, George Harris, and their
little boy, Harry. When she learns that Harry is about to be sold, Eliza carries him in her arms to the Ohio
River, which she crosses on cakes of ice. Although generally a modest and retiring young woman, Eliza
becomes extraordinarily brave because of her love for her son.

GEORGE HARRIS- George Harris, portrayed as a light-skinned and intelligent slave,
belongs to a man named Harris. He is married to Eliza, who lives on the Shelby plantation, and they have a
son, Harry.
HARRY AND LITTLE ELIZA - Harry and little Eliza are the children of George and Eliza
Harris. Harry, born a slave on the Shelby Plantation, is bright and cute, and sings and dances for Mr. Shelby
and Haley. He is so beautiful that he is disguised as a girl in order to escape into Canada. Once there, he
does very well in school. Little Eliza is born free in Canada.
-
SAM AND ANDY- Sam and Andy, slaves on the Shelby plantation, provide comic
relief through their mispronunciations and deliberate mishaps. Andy, who likes to makes speeches, is meant
to satirize politicians. But Sam and Andy make an important contribution to the novel's plot- their clowning
allows Eliza to escape across the Ohio River.


MR. SHELBY - Mr. Shelby, the owner of a Kentucky plantation, generally treats his
slaves well, but he decides to sell two of them, Uncle Tom and little Harry, to pay off a debt. Although he
regrets the sale, Shelby feels he has no other choice.

MRS. SHELBY - Mrs. Shelby, a kind, religious woman, tries to raise the family's
slaves with Christian values. She attempts to convince her husband not to sell Tom and Harry, and she
helps Eliza escape. Warm-hearted Mrs. Shelby treats her slaves like people, crying with Aunt Chloe when
Uncle Tom leaves and consoling her when they learn he is dead.
-
GEORGE SHELBY- George Shelby, the son of Mr. and Mrs. Shelby, is thirteen years old
when the novel begins, and eighteen when it ends. He likes to spend time with Uncle Tom and Aunt Chloe,
basking in their kindness and attention. He teaches Uncle Tom to read and write, and reads the Bible at the
slaves' religious meeting. On Uncle Tom's grave, he swears to do whatever he can to fight against slavery,
and he begins by freeing the slaves on his own plantation. George is one of the few characters who changes
during the course of Uncle Tom's Cabin, as he develops from a good-hearted but somewhat
self-centered boy into a noble and effective man.

HALEY-Haley sets the plot of Uncle Tom's Cabin in motion by insisting that Mr. Shelby sell him
Tom and little Harry. Haley curses, smokes, drinks, and dresses badly. He claims to be humane because he is
not completely cruel to the slaves he buys. But you can see that he's a nasty person. He doesn't believe slaves
have feelings, so he doesn't think twice about separating a mother and child- like Eliza and little Harry, or
about the woman who jumps off the steamboat on the Ohio River after he sells her baby. Haley can't
understand why these things keep happening to him.

TOM LOKER, AND MARKS- Tom Loker and Marks are crude fellows, who make their living
catching escaped slaves. You often see them in taverns. Tom Loker is shot by George Harris, but the
Harrises and the Quakers forgive him, and he is nursed back to health in the Quaker settlement. He gives the
Quakers the information that helps George and Eliza disguise
themselves so they can elude Marks at the Sandusky ferry.

-
MR. AND MRS. BIRD- Mr. and Mrs. Bird live in Ohio with their three children. Tiny
Mrs. Bird is a wonderful housekeeper and mother. Mr. Bird, a senator, has just voted for the Fugitive Slave
Law. Mrs. Bird tries to convince him that he is wrong, and that one must allow the heart to
guide the head. The appearance of Eliza on their doorstep makes him realize that he isn't capable of turning
in a fugitive. One of the Birds' children has recently died, and their loss makes them more
sympathetic to Eliza.

RACHEL HALLIDAY, SIMEON HALLIDAY, RUTH STEDMAN, DORCAS, AND
PHINEAS FLETCHER- These Quakers practice their religious beliefs in their daily lives.
They risk fines by helping escaped slaves. Rachel Halliday and Ruth Stedman are motherly and sympathetic;
Simeon and Phineas are quietly brave. They take good care of George and Eliza and make it possible for

First, that it was to guard the San Francisco bay area from enemy ships against a foreign invasion, and second, to hold hostage prisoners of war or POW\'s as they were called.

This is a difficult question to answer, and depending on your views of society, there may be several opinions on this subject. Let us not forget that movies cost money to produce, and the investors of these firms want a return on their money. Therefore, a producer must create a film that will be profitable, while at the same t

My earliest thoughts on it were shaped by early black and white war films; with noble Tommies against vile Huns, gallantly beating out their escape, while under heavy attack. The truth about the matter was far from straightforward, with a host of variables, as well as lots of good luck. For us Dunkirk- though admittedly a failure, we did flee the field after all- was

There were murders by the millions, and the Jewish victims of the Holocaust were affected by it, both directly

Society is wholeheartedly wrapped up in their lives so that to come to a dark theater for an hour or two is the closest thing to adventure or excitement that most individuals will incur.
