About this Item: Penguin Books Ltd, United Kingdom, 2003. Paperback. Condition: New. UK ed. Language: English. Brand new Book. Mark Twain's witty, satirical tale of childhood rebellion against hypocritical adult authority, the Penguin Classics edition of The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn is edited with a critical introduction by Peter Coveney.Mark Twain's story of a boy's journey down the Mississippi on a raft conveyed the voice and experience of the American frontier as no other work had done before. When Huck escapes from his drunken, abusive 'Pap' and the 'sivilizing' Widow Douglas with runaway slave Jim, he embarks on a series of adventures that draw him to feuding families and the trickery of the unscrupulous 'Duke' and 'Dauphin'. Beneath the exploits, however, are more serious undercurrents - of slavery, adult control and, above all, of Huck's struggle between his instinctive goodness and the corrupt values of society which threaten his deep and enduring friendship with Jim.Based on the first edition of 1884, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn includes a chronology and list of further reading by Richard Maxwell.Samuel Langhorne Clemens (1835-1910) trained as a steamboat pilot on the Mississippi river; 'Mark Twain', a phrase used on riverboats to indicate that the water is two fathoms deep, became the pseudonym by which he was best known. After the Civil War, Twain turned to journalism, publishing his first short story in 1865. Dubbed 'the father of American literature' by William Faulkner, Twain led a colourful life of travelling, bankruptcy and great literary success.If you enjoyed The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, you may like Mark Twain's The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, also available in Penguin Classics.'All modern American literature comes from one book by Mark Twain called Huckleberry Finn . There has been nothing as good since'Ernest Hemingway'Huckleberry Finn, like other great works of imagination, can give to every reader whatever he is capable of taking from it'T.S. Eliot.

About this Item: Peacock/ Atlantic Publishers & Distributors (P) Ltd., 2008. Softcover. Condition: New. First edition. Rated among the great works of American fiction, Twain s classics paint an unforgettable picture of Mississippi frontier life, and combine picaresque adventure with challenging satire and great technical innovative power. It is really a great fun to look back at our own childhood as we relive Tom s romantic exploits through his eyes and our own in The Adventures of Tom Sawyer. Tom, an universally recognisable classic literary hero, is an intelligent and imaginative boy who is nevertheless careless and mischievous. He along with his friend Huck Finn accidently witnesses a murder for which an innocent man is wrongly accused. Together they succeed in revealing the truth, but now the real murderer is after their life. From the famous episodes of the whitewashed fence and the ordeal in the cave to the hunt for the treasure that Joe had buried, the novel is simply superb, readable and full of surprises. The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, a brilliant satire on racism, giving a taste of American life in the late 19th century, is equally interesting. Tired of the endless constraints of the so-called civilized society , Huck teams with runaway slave Jim. As they ride their raft down the current, they encounter many challenges. Having been taught that helping a Black, runaway slave is a sin unimaginable, Huck faces a harrowing choice between the social norm and the person who needs him the most. Owing to its wonderful story, filled with plenty of action, youthful innocence and backwoods charm, and twists and turns in the plot, reader won t be able to put this book down before its completion Printed Pages: 544.

About this Item: Oxford University Press December 1996, 1996. Hardcover. Condition: Collectible; Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: As New. First Thus. 1st Edition THUS / 1st Printing - CLEAN!! No marks. Appears unread. . . . . . . . What Is Man? is Mark Twain's skeptical assessment of free will, and determinism, religious belief, and the nature of humanity. He put off publishing it for 25 years, and then released it anonymously in a limited edition of 250 copies. The book takes the form of a Socratic dialogue between a romantic young idealist and an elderly cynic, who debate such issues as whether man is a machine or a free actor, whether personal merit is meaningless given how our environment shapes who we are, and whether man has any impulse other than pursuing pleasure and avoiding pain. As readers we listen attentively, leaning forward in our chairs, Charles Johnson writes in his introduction, weighing on our own such statements as the Old Man's claim that No man ever originates anything. Men observe and combine, that is all. So does a rat. Linda Wagner-Martin, in the afterword, sees the ideas expressed in this volume as a thread that runs through even the lightest of Mark Twain's fiction, the calmest of his memoirs; and as the questioning hook that may provide a rationale for his becoming a writer in the first place.
