Dissected this one for English class. Sometimes, discussion takes all the charm out of a book. So do angry yet subtle attacks at Romanticism. ( )
  et.carole | Jan 21, 2022 |
Questo libro perché è considerato un must, l'esempio del grande romanzo americano, etc. e non ricordavo quasi nulla della mia prima lettura da ragazzina, per cui ero curiosa di capire cosa avrei colto da una rilettura adulta, con maggiori conoscenze storiche e coscienza sociale alle spalle.

Sono rimasta delusa, lo ammetto. Onestamente, benché sia da sempre un capisaldo della letteratura per ragazzi, ritengo che sia un libro che ad oggi andrebbe accompagnato da un genitore/insegnante. Tom Sawyer è molto più incentrato sulle avventure dei due ragazzini, alcune cose passano in secondo piano come figlie del loro tempo.

Qui l'atteggiamento verso i neri che traspare dalle pagine mi ha ricordato un po' quello dei movimenti animalisti di oggi: non è giusto che vengano trattati così, ma al contempo non li si sta considerando esseri viventi propriamente alla pari. Inoltre i temi sono sicuramente più adulti

In alcuni tratti mi sono francamente annoiata, la parlata di Jim, in lingua originale, era sicuramente realistica, ma ormai illeggibile, e il finale è un po' da mani nei capelli, con il "piano" di Tom che mi fa pensare che non si tratti di un ragazzino pieno di fantasia, ma di un narcisista patologico con manie di grandezza e un grave distacco dalla realtà, nonostante sappia che il racconto sia volutamente esagerato in chiave umoristica.

Es divertido, gracioso, estupido y profundo, todo a la vez.

Huck es ingenuo e ingenioso. Es capaz de creer que se puede disfrazar de chica para conseguir informacion y conseguirlo!

El dialogo introspectivo donde decide seguir los designios de su corazon a costa de condenarse al infierno eterno es de lo mejor que he leido en mucho tiempo. ( )

The first book I ever laughed out loud in. What a genius, that Mark Twain feller. ( )
  OutOfTheBestBooks | Sep 24, 2021 |
Showing 1-5 of 458 (next | show all)
Mark Twain may be called the Edison of our literature. There is no limit to his inventive genius, and the best proof of its range and originality is found in this book, in which the reader's interest is so strongly enlisted in the fortunes of two boys and a runaway negro that he follows their adventures with keen curiosity, although his common sense tells him that the incidents are as absurd and fantastic in many ways as the "Arabian Nights."
