by Mark Twain
“Adventures of Huckleberry Finn is a book by Mark Twain first published in England in December 1884 and in the United States in February 1885. Considered as one of the Great American Novels the work is among the first in major American Literature to be written in the veracular, characterized by local colour regionalism. It is told in the first person by Huckelberry “Huck’ Finn, a friend of Tom Sawyer and narrator of two other Twain novels.
The book is noted for its colorful description of people and places along the Mississippi River. Satirizing 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 look at entrenched attitudes, particularly racism.
