  1. The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn
    The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn is one of the most important books in American Literature for two reasons: its portrayal of Americana and tackling of racial issues, and because it's one of the few times where a spinoff was more successful than the original work. Read up on Shmoop's guide to The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, particularly the character analysis of Twain's beloved character and Tom's best friend, to give you more insight into Tom's partner in crime.

  2. Mark Twain's Quotable Quotes
