    Uncle Tom Cabin written by Harriet Beecher Stowe shows a big controversy between race and religion. The principles of freedom and moral values differ from one character to another because they have their proper beliefs and various types of opinions when it comes to slavery and religion. God is seen as the savior and if that is the case, why is slavery still allowed? Why one race has to suffer to satisfy the pleasure of the other? Why the rules of equality and justice do not apply to all human beings

    Realism in Uncle Vanya and A Doll's House A play serves as the author's tool for critiquing society. One rarely encounters the ability to transcend accepted social beliefs. These plays reflect controversial issues that the audience can relate to because they interact in the same situations every day. As late nineteenth century playwrights point out the flaws of mankind they also provide an answer to the controversy. Unknowingly the hero or heroine solves the problem at the end of the play and

    Silence In Stowe's Uncle Tom's Cabin "Out of silence," said the Unitarian theologian Carlyle, "comes thy strength."[1] I believe Carlyle is describing one of two kinds of silence. On one side, silence can be negative and harmful. This is the silence of oppression, a controlling force which leaves victims voiceless and the needy helpless. This is not what Carlyle means by his silence. He is invoking a different force. His silence has agency; it is the silence of resistance, of overcoming, and
