Ernest Hemingway once remarked that all modern American literature comes from Twain's adventure-filled story of Huck Finn and the mighty Mississippi. This Giant Literary Classics edition pairs two of Twain's best-loved novels, which introduced new territory to American readers when first published in the late 1800s.
A seminal work of American Literature that still commands deep praise and still elicits controversy, Adventures of Huckleberry Finn is essential to the understanding of the American soul. The recent discovery of the first half of Twain's manuscript, long thought lost, made front-page news. And this unprecedented edition, which contains for the first time omitted episodes and other variations present in the first half of the handwritten manuscript, as well as facsimile reproductions of thirty manuscript pages, is indispensable to a full understanding of the novel. The changes, deletions, and additions made in the first half of the manuscript indicate that Mark Twain frequently checked his impulse to write an even darker, more confrontational book than the one he finally published.
