Las abenturas de Huckleberry Finn

by Mark Twain

Huckleberry Finn es compañero de Tom Sawyer. Son dos figuras que se destacan en la literatura de Norteamérica entre las más vivas y originales. Estos dos niños simpáticos, traviesos, alocados a veces, han contribuido a la fama de Mark Twain más que ninguno de los personajes surgidos de su extraordinaria imaginación, sin duda porque al pintarlos mezcló en su paleta muchos recuerdos de su propia vida. No todas las aventuras que describe en este libro son dignas de ser imitadas por los jóvenes lectores. Pero quienes obran mal en estos episodios son castigados; y a menudo lo que parecen locuras no son más que el fruto de una desbordada fantasía infantil en un momento en que la historia de los Estados Unidos es también un tejido de extrañas aventuras, el latir de un pueblo adolescente que busca su equilibrio.

The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn

by Mark Twain

"All modern American literature comes from one book by Mark Twain called Huckleberry Finn," Ernest Hemingway wrote, "It's the best book we've had." A complex masterpiece that has spawned volumes of scholarly exegesis and interpretative theories, it is at heart a compelling adventure story. Huck, in flight from his murderous father, and Nigger Jim, in flight from slavery, pilot their raft thrillingly through treacherous waters, surviving a crash with a steamboat, betrayal by rogues, and the final threat from the bourgeoisie. Informing all this is the presence of the River, described in palpable detail by Mark Twain, the former steamboat pilot, who transforms it into a richly metaphoric entity. Twain's other great innovation was the language of the book itself, which is expressive in a completely original way. "The invention of this language, with all its implications, gave a new dimension to our literature," Robert Penn Warren noted. "It is a language capable of poetry."

The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn and Zombie Jim

by W. Bill Czolgosz Mark Twain

Free at last! Free at last! This ain't your grandfather's Huckleberry Finn. It's nineteenth century America and a mutant strain of tuberculosis is bringing its victims back from the dead. Sometimes they come back docile, and other times vicious. The vicious ones are sent back to Hell, but the docile ones are put to work as servants and laborers. With so many zombies on the market, the slave trade is nonexistant. The black man is at liberty, and human bondage is no more. Young Huckleberry Finn has grown up in a world that shuns the N-word, with its scornful eye set on a new class of shambling, putrid sub-humans: The Baggers. When his abusive father comes back into his life, Huck flees down the river with Bagger Jim, seeking a life of perfect freedom. When the pox mutates once again, causing even the tamest of baggers to become bloodthirsty monsters, the boy Finn is forced to question his relationship with his dearest, deadest friend. In this revised take on history and classic literature, the modern age is ending before it ever begins. Huckleberry Finn will inherit a world of horror and death, and he knows the mighty Mississippi might be the only way out...

by Mark Twain Bruce Brooks

Here is the story of Tom, Huck, Becky, and Aunt Polly; a tale of adventures, pranks, playing hookey, and summertime fun. Written by the author sometimes called "the Lincoln of literature," The Adventures of Tom Sawyer was surprisingly neither a critical nor a financial success when it was first published in 1876.
