The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn


Mark Twain's great American masterpiece, in a gorgeous new clothbound edition designed by the award-winning Coralie Bickford-Smith. These delectable and collectible Penguin editions are bound in high-quality colourful, tactile cloth with foil stamped into the design Mark Twain's tale of a boy's picaresque journey down the Mississippi on a raft conveyed the voice and experience of the American frontier as no other work had done before. When Huck escapes from his drunken father and the 'sivilizing' Widow Douglas with the runaway slave Jim, he embarks on a series of adventures that draw him to feuding families and the trickery of the unscrupulous 'Duke' and 'Dauphin'. Beneath the exploits, however, are more serious undercurrents - of slavery, adult control and, above all, of Huck's struggle between his instinctive goodness and the corrupt values of society, which threaten his deep and enduring friendship with Jim. Mark Twain was born Samuel Langhorne Clemens on 30th November 1835, in Florida, Missouri. In 1853 he left home, earning a living as an itinerant type-setter, and four years later became an apprentice pilot on the Mississippi, a career cut short by the outbreak of the Civil War. For five years, as a prospector and a journalist, Clemens lived in Nevada and California. In February 1863 he first used the pseudonym 'Mark Twain' as the signature to a humorous travel letter. A trip to Europe and the Holy Land in 1867 became the basis of his first major book, The Innocents Abroad (1869). His numerous subsequent books include The Adventures of Tom Sawyer (1876), A Tramp Aborad (1880), The Prince and the Pauper (1882), and his masterpiece, The Adventures of Huckleberry Fin (1885). Twain died on 21st April 1910. "The best book we've had". (Ernest Hemingway).

The Adventures of Tom Sawyer


HarperCollins is proud to present its new range of best-loved, essential classics. 'Now he found out a new thing - namely, that to promise not to do a thing is the surest way in the world to make a body want to go and do that very thing.' An idyllic snapshot of a boy's childhood along the banks of the Mississippi River, Twain's The Adventures of Tom Sawyer is the author's work that comes closest to his boyhood experiences of growing up in Hannibal in the 1840s. Mischievous and full of energy, Tom enjoys childish pranks and pastimes with his friends, Huck Finn, the town outcast and Joe Harper, his best friend. However, at the town graveyard, Huck and Tom witness a murder, carried out by local vagabond Injun Joe. They vow never to tell a soul about what they have seen and so begins their journey into adulthood as Tom wrestles with his own morality, guilt and anxiety. A 'coming of age' tale, it is through Tom's adventures and relationships with others that he becomes more responsible and more aware of his own inner conflict. Through the central characters of Tom and Huck, Twain satirises the moral rigidity of society and adult hypocrisy, whilst at the same time giving a nostalgic portrayal of a young boy's journey into adulthood.

Adventures of Tom Sawyer


This is a sumptuous leatherbound version of the original 1876 edition. This beautiful edition features a ribbon marker and decorated endpapers.

Inspired by his upbringing in a small township on the Mississippi and written 'to remind adults of what they once were themselves, and of how they felt and thought and talked, and what queer enterprises they sometimes engaged in', Twain's hymn to childhood and the great outdoors remains a classic account of boys on the loose in frontier-era America. This edition would be an attractive addition to any home library.

Tajemný cizinec


Mark Twain (30. 11. 1835 Florida, Missouri – 21. 4. 1910 Redding, Connecticut) je znám především svými humorně-dobrodružnými příběhy o Tomu Sawyerovi a Huckleberrym Finnovi. Mark Twain je znám jako autor, jemuž satira a jízlivost byla bytostně vlastní, byl ovšem i autorem děl, v nich vrchu nabývá pesimistický a pochmurný pohled na vývoj lidstva. Jedním z takových je povídka Tajemný cizinec, na níž autor pracoval 20 let (1890 – 1910). Tiskem vyšla až po jeho smrti, v roce 1916, v úpravě Twainova životopisce Alberta Bigelowa Painea, který spojil několik Twainových verzí. Ačkoliv jsou Paineovy zásahy mnohdy kritizovány, přesto se před námi odvíjí poutavý příběh, jenž odhaluje věčnou malost, zaslepenost, stádnost, manipulovatelnost a mravní pokleslost lidí. Děj je zasazen do středověké rakouské vesnice v roce 1590 a hlavní postavou je Satanův synovec Filip Traum, skeptický glosátor veškerého lidského hemžení, který svým třem chlapeckým přátelům odhaluje zrůdnost tzv. mravních principů, na nichž lidská (především křesťanská) společnost stojí. Nijak tedy nepřekvapí, že se Traumovo občasné konání dobra (prosté jakékoliv špetky účasti s lidským osudem) jen málokdy setká s pochopením – a už vůbec ne s vděkem – okolí.

The Prince and the Pauper - (Collins Classics)


HarperCollins is proud to present its new range of best-loved, essential classics. 'When I am king, they shall not have bread and shelter only, but also teachings out of books; for a full belly is little worth where the mind is starved, and the heart.' Set in 16th-Century England and following the lives of two young boys, The Prince and the Pauper is a classic and timeless tale. Tom Canty, the lowly pauper is almost identical in appearance to Edward Tudor, a prince. Unbeknownst to those around them, the boys strike up an unlikely friendship and soon realise that with their similar looks they could easily pass for one another. When the Prince's father dies, some of the more underhand court officials persuade the pauper to act as the Prince in order to reap the benefits of the 'mistake' and there follows a tale of friendship and growing up in one of Mark Twain's most infamous works.
