Reproductions of the original illustrations from the 1885 first edition highlight a new edition, featuring detailed annotations on the text and the era, of Twain's story about a boy and a runaway slave who travel down the Misssippi.
"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," declares Huck at the start of one of the greatest books in American literature. Filled with all the humor, suspense, and sheer excitement of its predecessor, Adventures of Huckleberry Finn is the more profound and accomplished creation. The tale of two outcasts' journey down the Mississippi River, Adventures of Huckleberry Finn is a nostalgic portrayal of a world Twain knew intimately, and the moving story of a boy who must make his own way in an often cruel society that counts it a sin to help a runaway slave.
Putting Mark Twain's Adventures of Huckleberry Finn in historical context, connecting it to pivotal issues like slavery, class, money, and American economic expansion, this book engages readers by presenting American history through the lens of a great novel. • Presents Twain's book as a historical novel that brings up key historical issues both in the antebellum period in which the novel is set and in the post-Reconstruction period in which it was written • Identifies how Huckleberry Finn underscores perhaps the cruelest aspect of slavery: the involuntary separation of husbands, wives, and children from each other • Ideal reading for college and high school students taking American history classes as well as general readers with an interest in American history, Mark Twain, or both • Provides extensive annotations that are useful, accessible, and interesting to readers without specialized knowledge of 19th-century history
"Until now, there has not been a single serious scholarly examination of Pap Finn. The current critical presumption is that, following his and the town's river search for the body of "murdered" Huck Finn (Pap the town's number one suspect), and returning to the St. Petersburg dock empty-handed, Tom Sawyer simply sits around and twiddles his thumbs. That every other word in The Adventures of Tom Sawyer is "revenge"; that Adventures of Huckleberry Finn (Tom Sawyer's Comrade) begins the same way Tom Sawyer ends, promising death to anyway who brings harm to Tom Sawyer's Gang; and that, of the sixteen deaths in the two Adventures, Pap Finn's alone remains unexplained - all seem to have carries no weight in the annals of American literary criticism. Has Tom's easy theatrics with racially-governed suffering perhaps implicated, beyond bearing, the critical as a whole? Rather than see this as Mark Twain's intention, the critical academy has chosen to fault the author, to sidle away from the great American novel, distancing itself from Huck's jarring depiction of America's slave-holding past. The question has to be asked: Why has American literary criticism accorded such a poor treatment to one of its greatest authors? One possibility, examined in detail here, is that it has not been a good reader."--Back cover.
