Although this book continues to raise hackles on the skin of many, I see it as one the finest works of writing in the history of the United States. The idea of Huck Finn has long been an iconic image of American freedom, independence, and basic decen...more

H.P. Lovecraft
“The most merciful thing in the world, I think, is the inability of the human mind to correlate all its contents. We live on a placid island of ignorance in the midst of black seas of infinity, and it was not meant that we should voyage far. The sciences, each straining in its own direction, have hitherto harmed us little; but some day the piecing together of dissociated knowledge will open up such terrifying vistas of reality, and of our frightful position therein, that we shall either go mad from the revelation or flee from the light into the peace and safety of a new dark age.”
H.P. Lovecraft

“...What disturbed him was the discovery that in sensibly ordering his affairs he had got out of step, and not into step, with Life.”
