Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, The (Macmillan Collector's Library) New Edition

Anglais Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, The (Macmillan Collector's Library) New Edition

À propos

Rather than be 'sivilized' by the Widow Douglas, Huckleberry Finn - the grubby but good-natured son of a local drunk - sets off with Jim, an escaped slave, to find freedom on the Mississippi river. With the law on their tail, they navigate a world of robbers, slave hunters and con men, and Huck must choose between what society says is 'right' and his own burgeoning understanding of Jim's friendship and humanity. Nostalgic and melancholy in equal measure, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain is a razor-sharp satire of the antebellum South that, despite beginning life as a sequel to The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, is now seen in its own right as one of the most important of all American novels. This beautiful Macmillan Collector's Library edition of The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn features an afterword by playwright and screenwriter Peter Harness. Designed to appeal to the booklover, the Macmillan Collector's Library is a series of beautiful gift editions of much loved classic titles. Macmillan Collector's Library are books to love and treasure.

Mark Twain

Mark Twain (1835-1910) est considéré comme l'un des auteurs les plus importants de l'histoire littéraire américaine. Pionnier d'une écriture « spontanée » ; il a introduit le langage parlé dans l'écrit.
Les deux romans qui l'ont rendu célèbre ; Les Aventures de Tom Sawyer (1876) puis Les Aventures de Huckleberry Finn (1884) ; ont exercé une influence considérable ainsi résumée par Hemingway : « Toute la littérature moderne américaine est issue d'un livre de Mark Twain, Huckleberry Finn. Avant, il n'y avait rien. Depuis, on n'a rien fait d'aussi bien. »
