Uncle Tom’s Cabin

Harriet Beecher Stowe

Chapters XVII–XIX

Summary Chapters XVII–XIX

Eva’s assistance to Tom in writing his letter serves as a small ray of hope in Chapter XIX. Stowe makes an innocent child her instrument for hope as she demonstrates how an act of nonjudgmental love can help the oppressed to find their own voices, to write their own words, and attest to their own humanity.
