9780393966404: Adventures of Huckleberry Finn (Third Edition)  (Norton Critical Editions)

This perennially popular Norton Critical Edition reprints for the first time the definitive Iowa-California text of Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, complete with all original illustrations by Edward Windsor Kemble and John Harley. The text is accompanied by explanatory annotations.

"Contexts and Sources" provides readers with a rich selection of documents related to the historical background, language, composition, sale, reception, and newly discovered first half of the manuscript of Mark Twain's greatest work. Included are letters on the writing of the novel, excerpts from the author's autobiography, samples of bad poetry that inspired his satire (including an effort by young Sam Clemens himself), a section on the censorship of Adventures of Huckleberry Finn by schools and libraries over a hundred-year period, and commentary by David Carkeet on dialects of the book and by Earl F. Briden on its "racist" illustrations. In addition, this section reprints the full texts of both "Sociable Jimmy," upon which is based the controversial theory that Huck speaks in a "black voice," and "A True Story, Repeated Word for Word As I Heard It," the first significant attempt by Mark Twain to capture the speech of an African American in print.

"Criticism" of Adventures of Huckleberry Finn is divided into "Early Responses" (including the first negative review) and "Modern Views" by Victor A. Doyno, T. S. Eliot, Jane Smiley, David L. Smith, Shelley Fisher Fishkin (the "black voice" thesis), James R. Kincaid (a rebuttal of Fishkin), and David R. Sewell. Also included is Toni Morrison's moving personal "Introduction" to the troubling experience of reading and re-reading Mark Twain's masterpiece.

“A Chronology and Selected Bibliography” are also included.

Review:

A seminal work of American Literature that still commands deep praise and still elicits controversy, Adventures of Huckleberry Finn is essential to the understanding of the American soul. The recent discovery of the first half of Twain's manuscript, long thought lost, made front-page news. And this unprecedented edition, which contains for the first time omitted episodes and other variations present in the first half of the handwritten manuscript, as well as facsimile reproductions of thirty manuscript pages, is indispensable to a full understanding of the novel. The changes, deletions, and additions made in the first half of the manuscript indicate that Mark Twain frequently checked his impulse to write an even darker, more confrontational book than the one he finally published.

Book Description Book Condition: New. Publisher/Verlag: Norton | An Authoritative Text Contexts and Sources Criticism | Das Haus der Witwe Douglas ist ein Ort unerträglicher Beengung. Huck Finn und sein Freund, der Sklave Jim, beschließen zu fliehen - auf einem klapprigen Floß den Mississippi hinunter in eine idyllische Gegenwelt der Freiheit und Natur. Das Abenteuer gelingt, bis sich plötzlich zwei Gauner des Floßes bemächtigen und die beiden Freunde zwingen, ihnen bei ihren Betrügereien an Land behilflich zu sein. Am Ende verraten sie Jim gegen Geld, und die Erzählung läuft auf eine komplizierte Befreiungsaktion des Inhaftierten hinaus. Was als Charakterroman begann, wird zu einer modernen Version des Schelmenromans: hintergründig, satirisch und höchst unterhaltsam. Freiheit und Humanität, Zivilisations- und Gesellschaftskritik sind die Themen, die den "Huck Finn" weit über die Abenteuer- und Jugendbuchwelt seines Vorgängers "Tom Sawyer" hinausheben. Narrated by a poor, illiterate white boy living in America's deep South before the Civil War, "Adventures of Huckleberry Finn" is the story of Huck's escape from his brutal father and the relationship that grows between him and Jim, the slave who is fleeing from an even more brutal oppression. As they journey down the Mississippi their adventures address some of the most profound human conundrums: the prejudices of class, age, and colour are pitted against the qualities of hope, courage, and moral character. Enormously influential in the development of American literature, "Huckleberry Finn" remains a controversial novel at the centre of impassioned critical debate. | Format: Paperback | Language/Sprache: english | 590 gr | 234x142x19 mm | 416 pp. Bookseller Inventory # K9780393966404
