Was Huck Black?

£14.99

Product description

Oxford University Press 1993. Fishkin, Shelley Fisher. Book condition: fine-. DJ condition: fine-. Apart from a very small amount of wear to the foot of the spine and a small nick to the reverse of the cover this book is in immaculate condition.

In a piece of controversial research, the author of this treatise offers compelling evidence that the voice of Mark Twain's most famous literary creation, Huckleberry Finn, was based on that of a black child whom he met in the early 1870s. By opening up the hitherto neglected impact of African-American voices on American literature to public scrutiny, this work offers a paradigm for innovative criticism that may very well redefine the focus and direction of contemporary debates on multiculturalism.
