Summary

Introducing Diversion Classics, an illustrated series that showcases great works of literature from the world's most beloved authors.
A seminal classic from one of America’s greatest writers, THE ADVENTURES OF HUCKLEBERRY FINN is at once a boyhood tale of life on the Mississippi and a symbolic exploration of race in America. While Huck and Jim journey down the Mississippi River, they encounter murderous thieves, warring clans, and a self-proclaimed duke and king, all underscored by Mark Twain’s characteristic wit. As pertinent today as it was a century ago, THE ADVENTURES OF HUCKLEBERRY FINN is a must-have for any reader.

    The story of Villette is told in flashback by Lucy Snowe, who tells of the trials of her young self first in England, and then in Belgium. Charlotte Bronte does not paint a romantic picture of an unsupported woman's life ? her heroine has to endure straitened circumstances, insecurity and humiliation. However, despite everything that happens to her, Lucy is a warm and courageous character who makes the most of the opportunities that occur. The love and fulfilment which are readily available to her younger, prettier and richer charges are not quite outside her reach, but it is clear to the reader that for her to achieve them cannot be easy.
