American classic “Huckleberry Finn

Dear Fellow American,

It is one of the most revered classics of American literature, and yet it has been banned in thousands of public schools across America.

Of Mark Twain’s The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, Ernest Hemingway once said, “All modern American literature comes from one book by Mark Twain called Huckleberry Finn.”

Unfortunately, political correctness has taken this literary classic out of the hands of far too many young Americans.

Here at Hillsdale College, we’re working to safeguard the legacy of this treasured classic, along with the legacy of the man regarded by many as America’s greatest author.

That is why I want to offer you a special, newly-released DVD box set of Hillsdale’s popular online course, “Mark Twain: Tom Sawyer, Huckleberry Finn, and Selected Short Stories” today.

Twain’s realist fiction reveals timeless truths about human nature and encourages reform in the reader and society.

After all, while American life has dramatically changed since the 1800’s, human nature has not, making Twain’s work as important as ever. With memorable humor and simplicity, he reveals fundamental truths not just about us as Americans, but about the human condition. That’s why we decided to develop this online course to explore Twain’s writings more deeply.

Now, we have created a special DVD version of this course that includes all nine lectures in the course. I’d like to send this DVD box set to you right away, as our way of thanking you for supporting Hillsdale’s online courses with a gift of $100 or more.

These online courses, including “Mark Twain,” are funded by generous donors like you. Your gift will help Hillsdale College maintain its independence from every penny of taxpayer funding, and continue to reach and teach millions of Americans with these free online courses and other educational programs.
