In Huckleberry Finn, Mark Twain returns to the small town of St Petersburg on the Mississippi. The resourceful Huck Finn, friend of Tom Sawyer, enriched beyond his dreams by his share in the reward for the capture of Injun Joe, is being 'civilised' by the Widow Douglas. But all is not well, and he finds it rough 'living in the house all the time, considering how dismal regular and decent the widow was in all her ways' and when his brutal, drunken father returns to claim him, he escapes with Jim a runaway slave, and sails down the Mississippi on a raft. Related by Huck Finn himself, in the warm, rich language of the American South, the people they meet and the adventures they have are described in Mark Twain's own particular brand of humour and logic. Fast-moving and true to life, Huckleberry Finn captures the excitement of life on America's great river, and has justly earned its place in the affections of generations of children.

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.
