Adventures of Huckleberry Finn

Adventures of Huckleberry Finn

21 Ungluers have Faved this Work
Adventures of Huckleberry Finn (or, in more recent editions, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn) is a novel by Mark Twain, 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, a friend of Tom Sawyer and narrator of two other Twain novels (Tom Sawyer Abroad and Tom Sawyer, Detective). It is a direct sequel to The Adventures of Tom Sawyer.

The book is noted for its colorful description of people and places along the Mississippi River. Set in a Southern antebellum society that had ceased to exist about twenty years before the work was published, Adventures of Huckleberry Finn is an often scathing satire on entrenched attitudes, particularly racism.

The versions at Internet Archive include the 174 Illustrations by E. W. Kemble (1861-1933) and 13 illustrations by James Harley as prepared by Mobileread User GrannyGrump

This book is included in Project Gutenberg.

Huck was in St. Petersburg. Minimal satire.
