Uncle Tom's Cabin

How does Stowe use this to structure her novel? What are the implications behind it?

Once both Eliza and Tom have embarked on their journeys, they go in two different directions: Eliza continues north in the hope of freedom, while Tom moves further south.

North is the direction one might want, especially if they were a slave. The underground railway to Canada and freedom was the ideal situation. South just meant greater misery and bondage.
