Harsh Reality of Uncle Tom's "Slave-Buying" Cabin

| No Comments
"Don't you know I can't hold you for my wife if he chooses to part us? That is why I wish I'd never seen you -- it would have been better for us both -- it would have been better for our poor child if he had never been born." - George in Uncle Tom's Cabin, the dramatic version, Act I - Scene I

How terrible that families should have to resort to separation in order to become free and live their lives!

I still can't get over the fact that poor little Eva, too, dies.  How depressing!  Just a short bit beforehand, she tells her father that she wants Tom to get his freedom when she is gone, and suddenly, she is!  Her own father even follows after her a short bit later!  Even Tom dies later.

Depressing.  Just saying.
