"All modern American literature comes from one book by Mark Twain called Huckleberry Finn... There was nothing before. There has been nothing as good since."

Hemingway's comment is scarcely an exaggeration. While critics have argued over the symbolic significance of Huck's and Jim's voyage down the Mississippi, none has disputed the greatness of the book itself.

What began modestly as a kind of companion to Tom Sawyer' grew under Mark Twain's hand into a work of immeasurable richness. In its distrust too much civilization and its concern with the way language turns dreamy and corrupt when divorce from life, it is a thoroughly modern novel. And more than modern is its hero, who is, according to T.S. Elliot, 'one of the permanent symbolic figures of fiction, not unworthy to take a place with Ulysses, Faust, Don Quixote, Don Juan, Hamlet and other discoveries which man has made about himself'.


Very Good (VG): I may show some small signs of wear - but no tears - on either binding or paper.
