Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In addition to the entire text of what some consider the quintessential American novel, this comprehensive volume features materials that help place the novel in perspective with its time and place. "Contexts" includes essays on the composition of the novel, the people and history of the Upper Mississippi Valley, slavery, and the critical reception of the novel upon its publication. "Readings" includes Henry Nash Smith's introduction to the 1958 Riverside Edition of the novel, as well as critical essays.

Synopsis:

This edition features vivid nineteenth-and twentieth-century accounts of slavery, runaways, and river travel — and doesn't shy away from the controversies that have swirled around this novel from its earlies days.
