The paper discusses the character Uncle Tom in Harriet Beecher Stowe's "Uncle Tom's Cabin" and describes him as an almost Christ-like character. It also discusses the central theme of slavery and how it is justified through the 'white' characters of the book. The paper shows how, by using repeated references to Christianity and the Bible, Stowe appeals to the reader's sense of morality that should transcend stereotypes.

From the Paper:

"Perhaps Stowe's message in using Quakers as the benefactors is the emphasis on true Christian values. Juxtaposed against a false sense of religious superiority that most slave owners perpetuated, the Quakers exhibit kindness and compassion to all people. Stowe, in her final chapter, tells the true story exemplifying the kindness of the Quakers. These are benevolent qualities they share with the protagonist, Tom. When Eliza and her son and husband are all reunited under the care of the Quakers, Stowe paints a picture of a true home, where they feel 'free,' even rich."
