Holy Exclamation Points Batman!

In case you haven't noticed, I like coming up with titles. I think the title fits, since there's an exclamation point in almost every line that's said. This entry is on Uncle Tom's Cabin (the play).

"That's you Christians, all over. You'll get up a society, and get
some poor missionary to spend all his days among just such heathen; but let me
see one of you that would take one into your house with you, and take the labor
of their conversion upon yourselves" (91). -St. Clare

A few months ago, I read the novel, so I couldn't help but compare the two just a little bit. There's a few changes here and there, but the message is still the same. It's interesting how much hypocrisy goes on throughout both works. Take the quote above as an example. St. Clare says it to his cousin Ophelia who's against slavery, but wants nothing to do with them. Even after the quote is said, she takes on the task of educating Topsy out of duty.
