The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn is a classic American novel because it encompass many topics, and still manages to say something significant about all of them. It isn't simply a children's textbook, or a simple adventure tale, but a vision of a battle between individuality and conformity through the eyes of one of the greatest characters in American literature. The point that this textbook is racist is absurd. The ending is there to provide a sharp contrast between Huck, a strong individual and a realist, and Tom, a total conformist and a romantic. Overall, this textbook is a pivotal piece in American literature, and most of the points made in the book still hold true today.

Adventures of Huckleberry Finn: 5 out of 5 stars based on 1 user reviews.


This 125th Anniversary edition of Adventures of Huckleberry Finn is expanded with updated notes and references and a selection of original documents-letters, advertisements, playbills-some never before published, from Mark Twain's first "book tour" to promote its original publication.

Mark Twain (1835-1910) was an American humorist, satirist, social critic, lecturer and novelist. He is mostly remembered for his classic novels The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn and The Adventures of Tom Sawyer. This is the only edition of Twain's masterpiece based on his complete manuscript, including the 663 pages found in a Los Angeles attic in 1990. It includes all of the illustrations commissioned by Mark Twain, historical notes, a glossary, maps, and selected manuscript pages.
