Of all the contenders for the title of The Great American Novel, none has a better claim than The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. Intended at first as a simple story of a boy's adventures in the Mississippi Valleyâ€”a sequel to Tom Sawyerâ€”the book grew and matured under Twain's hand into a work of immeasurable richness and complexity. More than a century after its publication, the critical debate over the symbolic significance of Huck's and Jim's voyage is still fresh, and it remains a major work that can be enjoyed at many levels: as an incomparable adventure story and as a classic of American humor.Â This Penguin Classics edition features an introduction by John Seelye, author ofÂ The True Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, and explanatory notes by Guy Cardwell.
For more than sixty-five years, Penguin has been the leading publisher of classic literature in the English-speaking world. With more than 1,500Â titles, Penguin Classics represents a global bookshelf of the best works throughout history and across genres and disciplines.
