Essay Topic 1
While the author is writing to protest and put an end to slavery, she was writing for a significant portion of the population that believed slavery was necessary to their economy.

To discuss this, review the treatments of specific slaves in specific incidents such as Tom, Eliza, George, Aunt Chloe, Emmeline, and Topsy.

One of the necessary components of a tragic hero is that he dies. In Uncle Tom's Cabin, Tom dies. If the reader accepts that Tom is a hero, what other qualities of a hero does Tom exemplify?
Conversely, you may decide that Tom is not a hero. If so, refer to specific incidents or quotations that support your view.
Essay Topic 3
The term "Uncle Tom" has come to have a very disparaging, insulting meaning in our modern society. It has come to describe an African American whom other African Americans consider to be subservient to white people and who treats whites in a way that suggests they are superior. This term comes from the novel Uncle Tom's Cabin. After reading this novel, decide whether a reader should be empathetic to Tom's treatment of whites or whether this character deserves this reputation. Obviously, to answer this question, the writer must refer to specific deeds or quotations from the novel.
