"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.
A seminal work of American literature that still commands deep praise and elicits controversy, The 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 to be 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 fuller 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.Review:
All modern American literature comes from one book by Mark Twain called Huckleberry Finn, It's the best book we've had. --Ernest Hemingway
The invention of this language, with all its implications, gave a new dimension to our literature. It is a language capable of poetry. --Robert Penn Warren
