Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis
`You don't know about me, without you have read a book by the name of "The
Adventures of Tom Sawyer", but that ain't no matter.'So begins, in characteristic
fashion, one of the greatest American novels. Narrated by a poor, illiterate white
boy living in America's deep South before the Civil War, Adventures of Huckleberry
Finn is the story of Huck's escape from his brutal father and the relationship that
grows between him and Jim, the slave who is fleeing from an even more brutal
oppression. As they journey down the Mississippi their adventures address some of
the most profound human conundrums: the prejudicesof class, age, and colour are
pitted against the qualities of hope, courage, and moral character.Enormously
influential in the development of American literature, Huckleberry Finn remains a
controversial novel at the centre of impassioned critical debate. This edition
discusses all the current issues and the evolution of Mark Twain's penetrating
genius.
Amazon.com Review
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.
