Glossary and Notes: The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn
This is a comprehensive glossary of the culture, geography, religious beliefs and customs as represented in Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain. There are over 650 entries including English words, Southern words and expressions, geographical terms, idiomatic and figurative expressions, and more that can’t commonly be found in a high school dictionary. To accommodate the different editions of Huckleberry Finn, words are listed by chapter in the order they appear in the book with an alphabetical index in the back. Included in the introduction is a brief essay to assist readers in understanding the overall context and language of the story, and an essay on figurative language to assist readers with Twain’s rich use of this.
