Overview

Mark Twain left his indelible imprint on American fiction with his humorous tales of rogues and rustics who live along the Mississippi River--among them The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, regarded by many literary enthusiasts as the great American novel. But in his satirical appraisals of personal freedom, community responsibility, and class differences, Twain roamed farther afield imaginatively than the nineteenth-century America that he knew best. The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn and Other Novels collects four of Mark Twain's best-loved novels, including The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn and The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, Twain's twin celebrations of American boyhood. In addition, this volume features Twain's historical romance, The Prince and the Pauper, and his Arthurian fantasy A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court.
