Uncle Tom ~ Cabin is a manifestation of thoughts and feelings or a continuous effort in the writer~ thinking activities in a society in her era. She offered an example of an abstraction or essence from a dream or a situation in the future, a goal or a target that she struggles for through the writer's contemplation. She offered other alternatives of other thoughts on freedom. In her book, she argued and reflected her perception about life. Therefore, when Harriet wrote about slavery, it was the result of her reflection on humanity.
