Religion in Uncle Tom’s Cabin and the Communist Manifesto
From the paper:
Although Uncle Tom’s Cabin by Harriet Beecher Stowe and the Communist Manifesto were written at about the same point in history, they are markedly different books. Although one was a fictional novel and one a philosophical treatise, both works influenced their countries to a greater or lesser degree during a civil war, and surprisingly similar views regarding religion are either expressed or implied in both works. This paper will look at how the two works discuss or reveal how religion was used to help maintain positions of power.
