I loved this book and although I ve seen portions of the movie here in the states I don t think I ve ever seen the whole thing and last I heard never will Its sad if you ask me because it depends on what you choose to focus on and if you focus on the fact it places slavery in a good light which I ve heard some say it does then yeah that s not good But if you decide to focus on the relationship that children who happen to be white have with Uncle Remus who happens to be black sort of a Grandfather figure is what I got then its a good movie Lets focus on the book shall we if you ve ever heard of Bre r Rabbit and the Tar Baby then that s just one of the stories in this book According to the Introduction this is a collection of Stories passed down by Negroes in the South and to preserve the original simplicity its written in dialect or rather its written the way the ones telling the stories tend to pronounce words the author comments about the fact it may not actually ualify as a dialect Reading in dialect can sometimes be a bit confusing but if done well it adds to the story Uncle Remus is definitely a fun read one I highly recommend if you ve heard any of the Bre r Animal tells that Disney has done and enjoyed them

Joel Chandler Harris ´ 3 summary

review Uncle Remus His Songs and His Sayings × eBook or Kindle ePUB Contains poems songs and folk tales deeply rooted in the plantation tradition Though early critics were dismayed by the apparent racist nature of the stories and the passive acceptance of the slave owning situation modern versions have overcome these aspects and Uncle Remus today provides education information and entertainment for children and parents The 29 books that were originally written have been compiled into nine Uncle Remus series and three books were published posthumously A total of 185 Uncle Remus stories were penned and they were path breaking in their depiction of the authentic speech of the Southern plantations Extensively adapted for radio animation film and television Uncle Remus is today an essential part of children's literature In fact not just children but older readers too will find the book a delightful class. I had read a few of the Brer Rabbit stories as a kid this collection included not just the Brer Animal stories but also all of the even terribly offensive Uncle Tom stories of Uncle Remus I have an affection for the Brer stories and also see some value in their place as American Aesop s Fables Morality tales couched in animal form that are fun silly and still a little creepyThat said the collection is difficult to read due to the dialect and once you ve made it through the children s stories you get bogged down in old negro hymns and folksy wisdom from Uncle Remus These stories are even cringe inducing to the modern ear and include jokes hinging on Uncle Remus s love of watermelon and his support of his white family his former masters I haven t studied the time period enough to say whether the book offers any historical value If it is an accurate chronicle of some experience for example if the stories songs and wisdom are actually black folktales that are not written elsewhere then I can appreciate the book Unfortunately I think of it is a white washed idealized black existence based around stereotypes that were only perpetuated by this book becoming a classic That s a shame particularly because I think that it diminishes the Brer stories As some have suggested again not sure if this is entirely accurate many of the stories themselves are reflective of plantation life and storytelling but the encompassing story of Uncle Remus is the creation of Joel Chandler Harris In that case there is also some concern with a white author co opting these tales to be packaged sold and branded as his creations for posterity The whole book suffers from its history and it makes even the simplest stories an uncomfortable read when considering the context
