The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn

The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn

By Mark Twain, Mark Twain

This edition features a new introduction by noted Mark Twain scholar R. Kent Rasmussen that situates the novel for a contemporary audience, and a foreword by Azar Nafisi, author of The Republic of Imagination.

Of all the contenders for the title of The Great American Novel, none has a better claim than Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. Written against the backdrop of the nation's desire to 'light out' and expand into the promised future of the West, the novel stands as a reminder of the difficulty of escaping inherited traditions. Huck and Jim's voyage portrays a turbulent yet hopeful epoch in American history, defining the experience of a nation in voices often satirical but always authentic. By turns praised, derided, banned, and celebrated, Adventures of Huckleberry Finn is Mark Twain's enduring masterpiece, and incomparable adventure story, and a classic work of American humor.

This edition features a new introduction by noted Mark Twain scholar R. Kent Rasmussen that situates the novel for a contemporary audience, and a foreword by Azar Nafisi, author of The Republic of Imagination.
