Course: The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn (Mark Twain)

Course description:

Huckleberry Finn is the timeless classic of a boy who escapes his own very difficult life by joining and aiding the very likeable negro slave, Jim in his escape to freedom down the Mississippi River.  Their adventures on the river, besides being very interesting, are not just for entertainment.  There are meaty things to ponder, such as Huck's selfishness and biases in contrast with Jim's simple virtues; Huck's very real moral dilemmas about obedience and breaking the civil law; shocking realities of life in some of the characters they meet on the river; and Huck's subsequent character development through it all.   Twain's simulation of Jim's negro slang is another enjoyable aspect of the book.   Recommended for grades 8-12.

Publisher's Description:

Hilariously, moving, epic in scope, and alive with the poetry and vigor of the American people, Mark Twain's story about a young boy and his journey down the Mississippi was the first great novel to speak in a truly American voice. Huckleberry Finn, like the river which flows through its pages, is one of the great sources which nourished and still nourishes the literature of America. Recommended for grades 8-12.
