  • "Mark Twain's Huckleberry Finn, the most widely taught work in American literature, is as controversial today for its treatment of race as it once was for its alleged immorality. Elaine Mensh and Harry Mensh here analyze the novel's depictions of blacks, whites, and the relations between them, and the messages those depictions send." "Black, White, and "Huckleberry Finn" shows that the argument over black-white relations in the novel is also an argument over nonfictional ones - over black images in white minds, conflicting perceptions of racial harmony, and differing interpretations of the American dream."--BOOK JACKET
