Adventures of Huckleberry Finn written by legendary author Mark Twain is widely considered to be one of the top 100 greatest books of all time. This great classic will surely attract a whole new generation of readers. For many, Adventures of Huckleberry Finn is required reading for various courses and curriculums. And for others who simply enjoy reading timeless pieces of classic literature, this gem by Mark Twain is highly recommended. Published by Classic House Books and beautifully produced, Adventures of Huckleberry Finn would make an ideal gift and it should be a part of everyone's personal library.
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.
