Inhaltsangabe: Mark Twain had a remarkable ear for dialogue, and is fondly remembered as a one of the great observers of human nature. In The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn he has created an indelible image of antebellum America with its sleepy river towns, con men, family feuds, and a variety of colorful characters, that is a lasting work of fiction, and a "must-read".
“So we come to see Huck in the end as one of the permanent symbolic figures of fiction, not unworthy to take a place with Ulysses, Faust, Don Quixote, Don Juan, Hamlet.” -- T. S. Eliot.
“All modern American literature comes from one book by Mark Twain called Huckleberry Finn. It's the best book we've had." -- Ernest Hemingway.
Review: A seminal work of American Literature that still commands deep praise and still elicits controversy, 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 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 full 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.
