The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn

The novel The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn has long become a classic and is considered by many to be the most significant contribution of Mark Twain to American and world literature. In simple, accessible language, with kindness and humor, through his young hero, the author acquaints the reader with the life of America of the 19th century. Homeless Huck, an orphan with a living father, is forced to flee, despite the fact that even from the first book his life seemed to have changed for the better. His companion becomes a runaway Negro Jim, while moving down the Mississippi boy gets into a lot of situations from which an hour and not every adult will easily find a way out and make the right decision. Through the adventures of his hero, Mark Twain raises many social problems of society, some of which continue to remain relevant until now. These are the problems of homeless children, drunkenness, racial intolerance, slavery, bloody family revenge, gullibility and fraud.
