Uncle Tom’s Cabin by Harriet Beecher Stowe was the single most influential literary text in the antislavery cause. The writing and illustrations of the book shed light on the way Northerners imagined the suffering of slaves and the struggle for freedom.

Many literary historians believe that Howells avoidance of the war in his literature is the very premise that defines realism.

James believed that writers should be allowed the greatest possible freedom in presenting their views of the world. He also believed that a good novel expressed life in action and had to be interesting.

"War feels to me an Oblique place."Although Dickinson was a writer during the war it is hard to say which poems she wrote during the time were inspired by the war.

Emily Dickinson

Henry James

Mark Twain

William Dean Howells

“A blot on our history, but not as great a blot as the buying and selling of Negro souls.”This is how Twain described the Civil War.

1843-1916
