I do not suggest that it is his only book of permanent interest; but it is the only one in which his genius is completely realized, and the only one which creates its own category.T. S. Eliot Huckleberry Finn, rebel against school and church, casual inheritor of gold treasure, rafter of the Mississippi, and savior of Jim the runaway slave, is the archetypical American maverick. Fleeing the respectable society that wants to sivilize him, Huck Finn shoves off with Jim on a rhapsodic raft journey down the Mississippi River. The two bind themselves to one another, becoming intimate friends and agreeing there warnt no home like a raft, after all. Other places do seem so cramped up and smothery, but a raft dont. You feel mighty free and easy and comfortable on a raft. As Huck learns about love, responsibility, and morality, the trip becomes a metaphoric voyage through his own soul, culminating in the glorious moment when he decides to go to hell rather than return Jim to slavery. Mark Twain defined classic as a book which people praise and dont read; Huckleberry Finn is a happy exception to his own rule. Twains mastery of dialect, coupled with his famous wit, has madeAdventures of Huckleberry Finnone of the most loved and distinctly American classics ever written. nbsp; Nominated for a Grammy for his work as co-producer of the five-CD box setThe Jazz Singers(1998),Robert OMeallyis Zora Neale Hurston Professor of Literature at Columbia University and Director of Columbia Universitys Center for Jazz Studies.
