About the book:

This Prestwick House Literary Touchstone Edition includes a glossary and readers notes to help the modern reader contend with Twains language, allusions, and deliberate misstatements and malapropisms.

The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, Mark Twains 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 masterpiece, an essential read, and one of the greatest novels in all of American literature. Twains satiric treatment of racism, religious excess, and rural simplicity and his accuracy in presenting dialects mark Huck Finn as a classic. His unswerving confidence in Hucks wisdom and maturity, along with the well-rounded and sympathetic portrayal of Jim draw readers into the book, holding them until Hucks last words rejecting all attempts to "sivilize" him.
