Über den Autor

Harriet Beecher Stowe (1811–1896) was an American abolitionist and author, best known for her novel 'Uncle Tom's Cabin' (1852). Born in Litchfield, Connecticut, she was the daughter of an outspoken religious leader, Lyman Beecher. Stowe wrote over 30 books, but it was 'Uncle Tom's Cabin' that catapulted her to international fame. The book, a vehement indictment of slavery, sold thousands of copies in the United States and abroad, strengthening the abolitionist cause and contributing to the outbreak of the Civil War. Though 'The Greatest Thanksgiving Tales of All Time' does not appear to be one of her major works, it may be an anthology that includes pieces by Stowe, reflecting her keen insight into social issues and human nature.

Stowe's writing is characterized by its vivid storytelling and its commitment to social justice. While her literary style embraced the sentimental and domestic norms of her time, it also displayed a sharp intelligence and a profound moral sense. Her empathetic portrayal of the African American experience was pioneering in the white-dominated literary world of the 19th century. Stowe's legacy rests on her ability to stir the human conscience through her portrayal of injustice and her impassioned argument for equality and human dignity.
