Elizabeth Ammons, Tufts University
"Inspired by a rare genius--rare in both intensity and in range of power."
Provides another opportunity for scholars and students to learn how Stowe craft[ed] a second and even more radical novel. . . . Represent[s] the literary, political, and ethical tensions and uncertainties of its time.--Resources for American Literary Study
A powerful novel mixing romance, slavery, and religion, Harriet Beecher Stowe's Dred was a bestseller in its day and a compelling extension of Stowe's critique of slavery. Robert Levine's superb edition of this important antebellum novel contains a fine introduction describing Stowe's development as a writer and antislavery advocate, the slavery controversy of the 1850s, and the prominent figures and themes of the novel. The text of Stowe's novel is illuminated by Levine's judicious and helpful explanatory notes.--Gregg Crane, University of Michigan
Inspired by a rare genius--rare in both intensity and in range of power.--George Eliot
An excellent edition of an important book. Robert Levine's introduction provides essential historical information about Dred Scott, Denmark Vesey, Nat Turner, and John Brown and gives full credit to Harriet Beecher Stowe as a passionate, realistic political writer confronting the most volatile issue of her day.--Elizabeth Ammons, Tufts University

I still very much want to read the book, as I loved Uncle Tom's Cabin, however I am deleting this copy and purchasing a different edition.
