Description

The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn is the only one of Mark Twain s various books which can be called a masterpiece I do not suggest that it is his only book of permanent interest but it is the only one in which his genius is completely realized, and the only one which creates its own category There are pages in Tom Sawyer and Life on the Mississippi which are within their limits, as good as anything with which one can compare them in Huckleberry Finn and in other books there are drolleries just as good of their kind But when we find one by a prolific author which is very much superior to all the rest, we look for the peculiar accident or concourse of accidents which made that book possible In the writing of Huckleberry Finn, Mark Twain had two elements which, when treated with his sensibility and his experience, formed a great book these two are the Boy and the River T.S EliotEdited for kindle with linked table of contents.

Why have I never read Adventures Of Huckleberry Finn before Was it Twain s copious use of the N word I vaguely recall a primary school teacher abruptly halting a class read aloud session, perhaps because of that Was it the air of earnest solemnity that surrounds so called classics Sheer lazin...
