Huckleberry Finn, like other classic works of the imagination, can provide every reader with whatever he is capable of finding as he reads. The well of the narrative runs as deep as the Mississippi River. Thus the book may be enjoyed by young boys and adults as well. It also means that the book can be and is a foundational document in American literature influencing many writers who have followed in its wake. The story is both epic and intimate. Over the years the excitement of Huck's adventures have gained depth of meaning for me that could not have when I was a boy even though I enjoyed them as much or more as a young reader. However, the friendship between Jim and Huck has come to the forefront for me in more recent readings. I have enjoyed my readings and as with all great works of literature I look forward to reading it again and gleaning more from its' depths.
