9780142437179: The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn (Penguin Classics)

Hilariously picaresque, epic in scope, alive with the poetry and vigor of the American people, Mark Twain's story about a young boy and his journey down the Mississippi was the first great novel to speak in a truly American voice. Influencing subsequent generations of writers -- from Sherwood Anderson to Twain's fellow Missourian, T.S. Eliot, from Ernest Hemingway and William Faulkner to J.D. Salinger -- "Huckleberry Finn," like the river which flows through its pages, is one of the great sources which nourished and still nourishes the literature of America.

Product Description:

Mark Twain's The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn is a masterpiece of world literature. Narrated by Huck is his own artless vernacular, it tells of his voyage down the Missippi river with a runaway slave named Jim. As the two journey downstream on a raft Huck's vivid descriptions capture the sights, smells, sounds and rhythms of life on the great river. By the end of the story, Huck has learned about the dignity and worth of human life -- and Twain has exposed the moral blindness of the "respectable" slave-holding society in which lives.

Product Description:

Wild child Huck has to get away. His violent drunk of a father is back in town again, raising Cain. He won't rest until he has Huck's money. So the enterprising boy fakes his own death and sets out in search of adventure and freedom.

Teaming up with Jim, an escaped slave with a price on his head, the two fugitives go on the run, travelling down the wide Mississippi River. But Huck finds himself wrestling with his conscience. Should he save Jim, or turn his friend over to a terrible fate?
