Anglais The adventures of Huckleberry Finn

À propos

«You don't know about me without you have read a book by the name of The Adventures of Tom Sawyer; but that ain't no matter. That book was made by Mr. Mark Twain, and he told the truth, mainly...» Adventures of Huckleberry Finn (or, in more recent editions, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn) is a novel by Mark Twain, first published in the United Kingdom in December 1884 and in the United States in February 1885.
Commonly named among the Great American Novels, the work is among the first in major American literature to be written throughout in vernacular English, characterized by local color regionalism. It is told in the first person by Huckleberry "Huck" Finn, a friend of Tom Sawyer and narrator of two other Twain novels. It is a direct sequel to The Adventures of Tom Sawyer.
The book is noted for its colorful description of people and places along the Mississippi River. Set in a Southern antebellum society that had ceased to exist about twenty years before the work was published, Adventures of Huckleberry Finn is an often scathing satire on entrenched attitudes, particularly racism.

Les deux romans qui l'ont rendu célèbre ; Les Aventures de Tom Sawyer (1876) puis Les Aventures de Huckleberry Finn (1884) ; ont exercé une influence considérable ainsi résumée par Hemingway : « Toute la littérature moderne américaine est issue d'un livre de Mark Twain, Huckleberry Finn. Avant, il n'y avait rien. Depuis, on n'a rien fait d'aussi bien. »
