Описание: A provocative, exuberant, and deeply researched investigation into Mark Twain s writing of "Huckleberry Finn," which turns on its head everything we thought we knew about America s favorite icon of childhood. In "Huck Finn s America," award-winning biographer Andrew Levy shows how modern readers have been misunderstanding "Huckleberry Finn" for decades. Twain s masterpiece, which still sells tens of thousands of copies each year and is taught more than any other American classic, is often discussed either as a carefree adventure story for children or a serious novel about race relations, yet Levy argues convincingly it is neither. Instead, "Huck Finn" was written at a time when Americans were nervous about youth violence and uncivilized bad boys, and a debate was raging about education, popular culture, and responsible parenting casting Huck s now-celebrated freedom in a very different and very modern light. On issues of race, on the other hand, Twain s lifelong fascination with minstrel shows and black culture inspired him to write a book not about civil rights, but about race s role in entertainment and commerce, the same features upon which much of our own modern consumer culture is also grounded. In Levy s vision, "Huck Finn" has more to say about contemporary children and race that we have ever imagined if we are willing to hear it. An eye-opening, groundbreaking exploration of the character and psyche of Mark Twain as he was writing his most famous novel, "Huck Finn s America" brings the past to vivid, surprising life, and offers a persuasive and controversial argument for why this American classic deserves to be understood anew."
