New versions of Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn

Recommended Posts

.....and much of post 19th Century American literature makes much more sense after reading it.

I hadn' t thought of that but I think you're right. I would add that Huckleberry Finn also makes sense for high school students for other reasons. Huck is relatively close to them in age and Twain's writing, like Jane Austen's, has a very high entertainment quotient - much easier to introduce American literature to kids via Twain rather than, say, Dreiser (although I read Dreiser in high school, too).
