The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, Mark Twain
How do we read Huckleberry Finn? Is it Mark Twain's masterpiece? A savage satire of race and the antebellum South? A rollicking good time as young teen Huckleberry Finn and his friend Jim, a slave, travel down the Mississippi River on a raft? Whatever your take, as Ernest Hemingway said, "All modern American literature comes from [this novel]," a statement that's very accurate.
