Antifanaticism: A Tale of the South is an 1853 plantation fiction novel by Martha Haines Butt

Antifanaticism: A Tale of the South is an 1853 plantation fiction novel by Martha Haines Butt. Antifanaticism is one of several examples of the plantation literature genre that appeared in reaction to the anti-slavery novel Uncle Tom's Cabin by Harriet Beecher Stowe, which had been criticised as inaccurately depicting slaveholders and slavery in general. Authors from the Southern United States sought to rectify this through their own series of pro-slavery novels.

In her Preface, Butt refers to herself as "a warm-hearted Virginian. In her Concluding Remarks, she acknowledges that she is young and this is her first book. In both places (and at several points inside the narrative) she says she is writing "to defend the South" from Harriet Beecher Stowe. At the end she invites Stowe to visit the South, sure that she'll see for herself how kind masters are, and how contented are the slaves

Butt's Antifanaticism is a well known example of the genre and she dedicated the book to her friend Hentz

Martha Haines Butt is something of a mystery woman, as there is very little biographical information about her. Antifanaticism: A Tale of the South (1854) and The Leisure Moments of Miss Martha Haines Butt (1860) appear to be her only publications. Antifanaticism was written when Butt was 19 years old, at her home in Norfolk, Virginia. Butt's Antifanaticism is a well known example of the genre and she dedicated the book to her friend Hentz. Similar to Ellen Wood's novel in that it relentlessly repeats a single idea with minor adjustments for variety, Antifanaticism's central tenet is that slavery is good.
