Mark Twain: the development of a writer by Henry Nash Smith( Book )

36 editions published between 1962 and 1996 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,599 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book considers first the problems of style and structure Mark Twain faced at the outset of his career, and then traces his handling of these problems in nine of his principal works. Since questions of technique necessarily involve questions of meaning, I have dealt also with his ethical ideas. The inquiry leads ultimately to the consideration of how his writing reveals a conflict between the dominant culture of his day and an emergent attitude associated with the vernacular language of the native American humorists. - Preface

Adventures of Huckleberry Finn : an authoritative text, backgrounds and sources, criticism by Mark Twain( Book )

12 editions published between 1958 and 1985 in English and held by 418 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This novel 'begins with Huck's escape from his drunken, brutal father to the river, where he meets up with Jim, a runaway slave. The story of their journey downstream, with occasional forays into the society along the banks, is an American classic that captures the smells, rhythms, and sounds, the variety of dialects and the human activity of life on the great river. It is also a penetrating social commentary that reveals corruption, moral decay, and intellectual impoverishment through Huck and Jim's encounters with traveling actors and con men, lynch mobs, thieves, and Southern gentility.'"
