So ein Glücksfall ist Ken Dukens Lesung des Huckleberry Finn, mit dem der junge Schauspieler, geboren 1979, sein Debüt als Vorleser gibt.

Mark Twain's Adventures of Huckleberry Finn

Perennially listed among the classics of American literature, Mark Twain’s Adventures of Huckleberry Finn (1885) broke new ground by allowing a teenage boy to narrate his own story. The son of a cruel town drunkard, Huck Finn vividly describes his friendship with Tom Sawyer, his resolve to run away from his abusive father, and his decision to join a runaway slave named Jim in a search for freedom. Jim and Huck’s days and nights on a raft floating down the Mississippi River form one of the most evocative stories of interracial bonding ever written, and the bizarre characters they encounter in their journey are memorably sketched. Though comical in places, ultimately the book warns about the price of immoral social conformity. Editor Alan Gribben explains the historical and literary context of Twain’s novel and vigorously defends it against the many critics who fault its language, relationships, and conclusion. Gribben also supplies a helpful guide to Twain’s satirical targets. This Original Text Edition faithfully follows the wording of the first edition.

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2009 im Fachbereich Anglistik - Literatur, Note: 2,0, Universitat Augsburg (Lehrstuhl fur Englische Literaturwissenschaft), Veranstaltung: Classic American Novels of the 19th century, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn von Samuel Langhorne Clemens alias Mark Twain erzahlt auf aussergewohnliche Weise die Geschichte des jungen Huckleberry Finn, der zusammen mit dem entflohenen Sklaven Jim, den Mississippi entlang fahrt und dabei jede Menge Abenteuer erlebt. Aussergewohnlich ist diese Geschichte nicht nur wegen den spannenden Erlebnissen der beiden Jungen entlang des Flusses, sondern viel mehr wegen des einzigartigen Schreibstils, dem sich Twain bedient. So sehr wie noch kein Autor je zuvor bedient er sich der vernacular language," der Umgangssprache, um dem Roman einen besonderen Stempel aufzusetzen. Die folgende Arbeit soll nun den Stil dieser Mundlichkeit und andere stilistische Mittel seines Werkes beleuchten und an Beispielen deutlich machen."

This Prestwick House Literary Touchstone Edition includes a glossary and reader's notes to help the modern reader contend with Twain's language, allusions, and deliberate misstatements and malapropisms.The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, Mark Twain's sequel to The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, became an instant success in the year of its publication, 1884, but was seen by some as unfit for children to read because of its language, grammar, and "uncivilized hero." The book has sparked controversy ever since, but most scholars continue to praise it as a modern masterpiece, an essential read, and one of the greatest novels in all of American literature.Twain's satiric treatment of racism, religious excess, and rural simplicity and his accuracy in presenting dialects mark Huck Finn as a classic. His unswerving confidence in Huck's wisdom and maturity, along with the well-rounded and sympathetic portrayal of Jim draw readers into the book, holding them until Huck's last words rejecting all attempts to "sivilize" him.

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2011 im Fachbereich Amerikanistik - Literatur, , Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn are considered as Mark Twain's masterpiece. In his work he both depicts and criticizes the society in which he grew up and what was typical of it back then: slavery, violence and bigotry (cf. Pettit 83). When Mark Twain wrote his novel “The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn” in 1876, the status of blacks was a very important issue in the United States (cf. Sloane 3). Mark Twain turned away from 19th century romanticism to realism. His aim was to depict “men and women as they are” (cf. Bell 36). Twain intended to write a novel in which he could portray the society in which he had grown up. This paper shall help to understand the novel's message, by introducing some biographical facts about Clemens on the one hand, and the historical context in which it was written on the other hand. Furthermore, it shows how the novel's perception, which has always been controversial, has changed over the years. My aim is to explain to the reader why Twain's best-known novel is not racist.

This carefully crafted ebook: “The Adventures of Tom Sawyer + The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn” contains 4 books in one volume and is formatted for your eReader with a functional and detailed table of contents. The Adventures of Tom Sawyer by Mark Twain is an 1876 novel about a young boy growing up along the Mississippi River. The story is set in St. Petersburg, Missouri, where Tom Sawyer and his friend Huckleberry Finn have the kinds of adventures many boys can imagine: racing bugs during class, impressing girls, especially Becky Thatcher, with fights and stunts in the schoolyard, getting lost in a cave, and playing pirates on the Mississippi River. Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, published in 1884, is taken as a sequel to The Adventures of Tom Sawyer. It is told in the first person by Huckleberry "Huck" Finn, best friend of Tom Sawyer and narrator of two other Twain novels. Tom Sawyer Abroad, published in 1894, features Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn in a parody ofJules Verne-esque adventure stories. In the story, Tom, Huck, and Jim set sail to Africa in a futuristic hot air balloon, where they survive encounters with lions, robbers, and fleas to see some of the world's greatest wonders. Tom Sawyer, Detective was published in 1896. In the novel Tom Sawyer attempts to solve a mysterious murder. Like Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, the story is told using the first-person narrative voice of Huck Finn. Samuel Langhorne Clemens (1835 – 1910), better known by his pen name Mark Twain, was an American author and humorist. He wrote The Adventures of Tom Sawyer (1876) and its sequel, Adventures of Huckleberry Finn (1885), the latter often called "the Great American Novel."
