马克·吐温是美国批判现实主义文学的奠基人，世界著名的短篇小说大师。The Million Pound Bank Note 是其著名的短篇小说。而他的另一篇佳作The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn，为美国小说的语言带来了意义深远的变化，奠定了美国文学口语化风格的基础。The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn描写小顽童哈克遇到逃离主人的小黑奴吉姆，两人为了躲避一场杀人误会，乘坐一条小木筏沿著密西西比河顺流而下，遇到了有趣的事情。
Mark Twain’s classic novel, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, tells the story of a teenaged misfit① who finds himself floating on a raft down the Mississippi River with an escaping slave, Jim. In the course of their perilous journey, Huck and Jim meet adventure, danger, and a cast of characters who are sometimes menacing② and often hilarious③. Though some of the situations in Huckleberry Finn are funny in themselves, this book’s humor is found mostly in Huck’s unique worldview and his way of expressing himself. Describing his brief sojourn④ with the Widow Douglas after she adopts him, Huck says, “After supper she got out her book and learned me about Moses and the Bulrushers, and I was in a sweat to find out all about him; but by and by she let it out that Moses had been dead a considerable long time; so then I didn’t care no more about him, because I don’t take no stock in dead people.” Underlying Twain’s good humor is a dark subcurrent⑤ of Antebellum(美国南北战争前的) cruelty and injustice that makes The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn a frequently funny book with a serious message.
