Influencingsubsequent generations of writers -- from SherwoodAnderson to Twain's fellow Missourian, T.S. Eliot, from Ernest Hemingway and WilliamFaulkner to J.D. Salinger --"Huckleberry Finn," like the riverwhich flows through its pages, is one of the greatsources which nourished and still nourishes theliterature of America."
