Abstract:
This article addresses Stowe's notorious 1869 exposé of incest and the Byron marriage, in the contexts of racial and sexual slavery. In studying her inflammatory claims, the article demonstrates an important shift in Stowe's thought, as she works to redefine her understanding of the institution of "slavery" and expands its definition, applying it to the condition of women in the U.S. and elsewhere.
