Inviting readers to participate in literary debate, this important case study of Mark Twain's celebrated novel reprints the 1885 first edition along with critical essays on the major controversies surrounding the novel today. The eighteen essays center on three cur- rent critical questions about Huckleberry Finn:
• Is the ending a success or a failure?
• Is the text racist?
• What role do gender and sexuality play in the work?

The novel and the essays are supported by distinctive editorial material that helps readers grapple not Only with the novel's critical issues but also with cultural debates about literature itself. The editors have provided an introduction to critical conflict in literary studies, a biographical essay on Mark Twain and the reception of Huckleberry Finn, introductions to the controversies (with bibliographies), and a headnote for each selection.

Work Description

Adventures of Huckleberry Finn or as it is known in more recent editions, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, is a novel by American author Mark Twain, which was first published in the United Kingdom in December 1884 and in the United States in February 1885.

Commonly named among the Great American Novels, the work is among the first in major American literature to be written throughout in vernacular English, characterized by local color regionalism. It is told in the first person by Huckleberry "Huck" Finn, the narrator of two other Twain novels (Tom Sawyer Abroad and Tom Sawyer, Detective) and a friend of Tom Sawyer. It is a direct sequel to The Adventures of Tom Sawyer.
