«Dijimos que no había hogar como una balsa, después de todo. Otros sitios parecen estrechos y asfixiantes; pero una balsa, no.»


Criticada y elogiada por igual, esta novela no solo constituye la culminación de la narrativa de Mark Twain, sino también el clásico por excelencia de la literatura estadounidense. Mark Twain, con su irónico sentido del humor y su prosa ágil y precisa, nos lleva por el Mississippi de la mano del inolvidable Huck Finn y su fiel amigo Jim, quien huye de la esclavitud. Novela sobre el racismo, la violencia, la amistad y la libertad en unos años turbulentos, Las aventuras de Huckleberry Finn es una lectura imprescindible a cualquier edad.

La presente edición, en una traducción de José A. de Larrinaga, incluye el «Episodio de la balsa», un pasaje que Mark Twain decidió excluir persuadido por el editor de la primera publicación. Completa el volumen una esclarecedora introducción de R. Kent Rasmussen, uno de los máximos expertos en la obra de Twain.

Roberto Bolaño dijo sobre Las aventuras de Huckleberry Finn...
«Sobrevivir. Esa es una de las magias que el lector encuentra en esta novela. Capacidad para sobrevivir.»



ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

This 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 (Tom Sawyer Abroad and Tom Sawyer, Detective).

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.
