Search for Books or E-books
Huck is a young, naive white boy fleeing from his drunken, dangerous Pa; and Jim is a runaway slave longing to be reunited with his family. Flung together by circumstance, they journey down the Mississippi together on a log raft, each in search of his own definition of freedom. Their daring adventures along the way provide both entertainment and a satirical look at the moral values of the Deep South of the 1800s.
About the Author
Mark Twain'smost famous works are "The Adventures of Tom Sawyer" and "The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn.""
"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
"Huckleberry Finn took the first journey back. His eyes were the first eyes that ever looked at us objectively that were not eyes from overseas . . . he wanted to find out about men and how they lived together. And because he turned back we have him forever." —F. Scott Fitzgerald
"I believe that Huckleberry Finn is one of the great masterpieces of the world." —H.L. Mencken
"It is Huck who gives the book style. The River gives the book its form. But for the River, the book might be only a sequence of adventures with a happy ending. A river, a very big and powerful river, is the only natural force that can wholly determine the course of human peregrination.... Thus the River makes the book a great book... Mark Twain is a native, and the River God is his God." —T.S. Eliot
