1881 1ed Uncle Remus Mr Fox Mr Rabbit Joel Harris Slave

1881 1ed Uncle Remus Mr Fox Mr Rabbit Joel Harris Slavery Song of South RARE UK ed Br’er Rabbit and crew are the basis and inspiration for Disney’s black folklore, controversial tale “Song of the South” and popular attraction Splash Mountain! ‘Uncle Remus’ by Joel C. Harris defines many of the stereotypes of the African-American people, including dialect and slavery themes. Harris himself said that ‘Uncle Remus’ was ‘a sympathetic supplement to Stowe’s wonderful defense of slavery as it existed in the South. [She] attacked the possibilities of slavery with all the eloquence of genius, but the same genius painted the portrait of the Southern slave-owner, and defended him.’ (Bernstein, 2011). There has never been a lack of controversy surrounding this title, however, it should be stated that these stories are unique portrayals of American history and the characters can be enjoyed! Item number: #6631 Price: $750 HARRIS, Joel Chandler Uncle Remus; Or, Mr. Fox, Mr. Rabbit and Mr. Terrapin London: George Routledge & Sons, 1881. First UK edition.
