Mark Twain and the Brazen Serpent Excerpt :

Focusing on the overarching theme of religious satire in Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, this study reveals the novel's hidden motive, moral and plot. The author considers generations of criticism spanning the 19th, 20th and 21st centuries, along with new textual evidence showing how Twain’s richly evocative style dissects Huck’s conscience to propose humane amorality as a corrective to moral absolutes. Jim and Huck emerge as archetypal twins—biracial brothers who prefigure America’s color-blind ideals.

Mark Twain The Dover Reader Excerpt :

After the Civil War, Samuel Clemens (1835–1910) left his small town to seek work as a riverboat pilot. As Mark Twain, the Missouri native found his place in the world. Author, journalist, lecturer, wit, and sage, Twain created enduring works that have enlightened and amused readers of all ages for generations. This single-volume introduction to the great American storyteller's writings features the complete text of his masterpiece, Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, as well as excerpts from Life on the Mississippi, Twain's memoir of his days as a steamboat pilot. The book also contains the classic short stories "The Notorious Jumping Frog of Calaveras County," "The £1,000,000 Bank-Note," "The Man That Corrupted Hadleyburg," and "The Mysterious Stranger."
