Hello, I'm a French student who studies English at University.
I would be very thankful if anyone could share some information with me
concerning Huckleberry Finn- it is part of my syllabus this year. We are
asked to study to what extent this novel is akin to a Bildungsroman.
Another aspect of the program deals with Paul Auster's The Invention of
Solitude, another with William Blake's Songs of Experience, and
Shakespeare's Hamlet. Any help or comment on either of these topics will
be become, your personal impressions as native speakers or scholars will
be mostly appreciated. I have already read some really interesting
comments on HF, which related to the picaresque in the novel and a
criticism onWas Huck Black and on Jane Smiley's book. If you have further
information, please let me know.
Thanks a lot.
Nathalie Le Guelte.
