Adventures of Huckleberry Finn

Mark Twain Fiction

Adventures of Huckleberry Finn


Rather than be ‘sivilized’ by the Widow Douglas, Huckleberry Finn – the grubby, 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, Huckleberry Finn is razor-sharp satire of the antebellum South that, 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.
