Product Description

Along with Blake and Dickens, Mark Twain was one of the nineteenth century's greatest chroniclers of childhood. These two novels reveal different aspects of his genius: Tom Sawyer is a much loved story about the sheer pleasure of being a boy; Huckleberry Finn, the book Hemingway said was the source of all the American fiction that followed it, is both a hilarious account of an incorrigible truant, and a tremendous parable of innocence in conflict with the fallen adult world.

Editorial Reviews

“All modern American literature comes from one book by Mark Twain called Huckleberry Finn . . . All American writing comes from that. There was nothing before. There has been nothing as good since.” –Ernest Hemingway

“As characters Tom and Huck have become American myths (a form of transubstantiation achieved by remarkably few fictional creations in the last hundred years), and that very fact indicates that whatever distinctions are made between the two novels, and however many reservations are cited about either or both, Twain possessed extraordinary imaginative power.” –from the Introduction by Miles Donald
