Synopsis

Mark Twain's The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn by Prof. Harold Bloom

Hailed by writers and critics alike as one of the most important American novels ever published, Mark Twain's quintessential coming-of-age story The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn gave a distinct voice to American literature. As the respected critics in this volume attest, Twain's novel sustains the tests of time and interpretation. This fully updated volume also offers perceptive supplementary materials, such as a chronology and an index, that will come in handy for students writing research papers on this beloved work.

Reviews

This is the type of novel that is open to interpretation and students will gain a better understanding from reading all of the discussion. Doctorow is quoted in several chapters. Students looking for criticism and analysis of literary works will find it easy to use this title rather than searching endlessly for the journals in which these articles may have originally appeared. A valuable resource for literature collections.

Each essay is well-defined and laboriously researched, and each opinion is defended within its context...The book is a useful tool for students needing to examine the themes and context of Tolkien's work.
