All modern American literature comes from one book by Mark Twain calledÂ Hucklberry Finn. (Ernest Heminway)
Of all the contenders for the title of The Great American Novel, none has a better claim than The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. Intended at first as a simple story of a boy's adventures in the Mississippi Valleyâa sequel to Tom Sawyerâthe book grew and matured under Twain's hand into a work of immeasurable richness and complexity. More than a century after its publication, the critical debate over the symbolic significance of Huck's and Jim's voyage is still fresh, and it remains a major work that can be enjoyed at many levels: as an incomparable adventure story and as a classic of American humor.Â This Penguin Classics edition features an introduction by John Seelye, author ofÂ The True Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, and explanatory notes by Guy Cardwell.
