    One thought on “Ten Nights in a Bar-Room and What I Saw There”

    1. I started reading Ten Nights in a Bar Room months after hearing about it in a 19th century women s rights class without any idea what I was getting into This is a heavy handed moral book, preaching against the evils of drink, and the first half of the book does have its fair share of angelic child melodrama The second half of this book, however, is an insane temperance themed bloodbath Pro Maine Law speeches are punctuated by a surprising amount of stabbings, gouged eyes, and trampled faces, all [...]

    2. This heavy handed, morality novel is told from the standpoint of a man who returns to the same bar ten times over a ten year period The narrator abstains from alcohol and gambling, so it is never very clear why he spends so much time in this bar room It has historical significance as 19th century propaganda literature for strict alcohol control laws and anti gaming laws From a literary standpoint, it reminds me somewhat of Uncle Tom s Cabin but is stylistically closer to that of a religious or p [...]

    3. Our image of the US in the 1850s is of a country starkly divided between free states and slave states, the tensions between which permeated politics and many aspects of daily life Indeed a novel from the 1830s, Sheppard Lee, Written by Himself, gives a similar impression of the US two decades earlier, and one can only imagine that the tensions expressed there would be even pronounced in the decade leading to the Civil War But in Cedarville, the fictional setting of Ten Nights in a Bar Room and [...]

    4. Read for Masters programme to contextualise Uncle Tom s CabinProvides biblical arguments to support temperance, despite the obvious flaw in that prohibition goes against God s rationale for giving humans free will Even the drinkers vote for temperance in this book In my experience people with a drink problem are very rarely the first to recognise their problem and therefore would not request this drastic salvation The impression created is that all patrons of the inn are helpless to drink and re [...]

    5. Apparently, this was one of the most important temperance novels of the 19th century, and it reads as such This novel is essentially an overwrought, worst possible case guide to bar room life that resonates with sensationalism and unintentional hilariousness often than realism As the characters descend further and further into total debasement, the narrator peppers the text with support the Maine Law messages Obviously, I m taking this novel out of its historical context with this review, but I [...]

    6. Having been raised myself in a bar next door to the author s home town of Fort Montgomery, I am fascinated to read what is called the best Temperance novel of the 19th century Set in the 1850s, this morality tale portrays the evil of alcohol in the story of a mill owner who sells his mill to build a tavern in town Told by a visitor to the town who stays at the tavern for ten days over a period of ten years, he shows how customers and owner are all too weak to resist the temptations of demon rum [...]

    7. Second highest selling book in 19th century America behind Uncle Tom s cabin but of course, that doesn t make it good reading A lurid prohibitionist screed I suspect most ppl read it for its luridness than its moral message , including death, insanity, destroyed families, broken untrusted laws and men of laws, etc.Some interesting telling moments around arguments for temperance in the time 1854 , property values in relationship to new saloons, etc.

    8. Since I regularly play in the melodrama, The Drunkard, which is based upon this book, I really enjoyed getting some background on the characters Otherwise, I probably would not have rated it so highly.

    9. It s your typical late nineteenth century writing, not my favorite, but quite descriptive and to the point Maybe old school for some, but the transcending truths of the lifestyle surrounding drinking should make people think twice before indulging in a needless practice.

    10. this is one of those classic turn of the century novels about the evils of liquor I founf it interesting, but I mainly read it because it is a classic leather bound copy in my family.

    11. Odd book by today s standards.But strangely entertaining, and insightful from an historical perspective.Like Reefer Madness, but for alcohol.
