After I finished readingUncle Tom’s Cabin,It felt like I just finished watching a movie and I myself was a character in the movie, which clearly disclose the nature of capitalism. Meanwhile, this book reconfirmed a thought that the prosperity of some capitalist countries is based on the unknowns’ sacrifice.
The story in the article is mainly about this, a slaveholder had to sell his two slaves, one of whom named Tom, to pay debt. Faced to this kind of miserable life and being a slave who is loyal to his owner, Tom never thought to run away, because he, a real believer in Christianity, had decided to pursue to be an honest man all his life. Tom’s new owner made him live a more unbearable life, what’s worse, Tom didn’t change his mind. Until the last second Tom’s last owner regretted his decision and wanted to bail Tom out, but, unfortunately, Tom died of that kind of misery.
This article analyzes the characteristics of loyalty, kindness and generosity embodied in Uncle Tom who was full of kindness was the true hero in the history of American novels, it also points out that Tom was very tolerant and weak to the cruelty of slavery and that the black must fight back to gain freedom. Though died of slaveholders’ persecution, Tom was a winner in the spirit, which in defiance of the physical injure , perhaps as such, Tom got the right to enjoy his dream life in the heaven.
As a white, Mrs. Stow wrote this article, the greatest anti-slavery work of America in the 19thcentury, to express her idea to appeal the people in the south to stand up to fight against the slavery sustained in the South of America, everybody in America, including the white, should sympathize with those black slaves on their miserable fate.
Nowadays, people still regard Tom as a symbol of never giving up pursuing to realize his value. Tom did not give up his belief regardless of the unbearable destiny, and he proved us that the black were self-governed individualities, not born to slaves working for the white. To some extent, it is safe to draw the conclusion that Tom would be the heretical model at all events.
