In the adventures of Huckleberry Finn, a sequel to the adventures of Tom Sawyer, Huck escapes from the clutches of his abusive drunk father ‘pap’, and the ‘sivilizing’ guardian widow Douglas. After faking his own death in pursuit of freedom, during one of his travels, Huck, encounters Jim, a runaway slave. Together, they embark on an exciting journey along the Mississippi river, meeting different people and participating in their unusual lives. With time, Huck finds himself in a moral dilemma over societal values and his own friendship with Jim. First published in 1884, The book was an indictment of racism, Class prejudices and identity conflicts. Regarded as one of the great American novels, this timeless classic by Mark Twain is also among the first in American literature to be written in regional English, relying on scathing satire, folksy humour, colloquial speech and coarse language.
