About the Edition

Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, Mark Twain's sequel to The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, became an instant success in the year of its publication, 1884, but was seen by some as unfit for children to read because of its language, grammar, and 'uncivilized hero.' The book has sparked controversy ever since, but most scholars continue to praise it as a modern master piece, and essential read, and one of the greatest novels in all of American literature.

Twain's satiric treatment of racism, relitious excess, and rural simplicity and his accuracy in presenting dialects mark Huck Finn as a classic. His unswerving confidence in Huck's wisdom and maturity, along with the well-rounded and sympathetic portrayal of Jim draw readers into the book, holding them until Huck's las words rejecting all attempts to "sivilize" him.

This Prestwick House Literary Touchstone Classic includes a glossary and notes to help the modern reader content with Twain's language, allusions, and deliberate misstatements and malapropisms.
