Ummm, is the "Notice" a little illegal?

After all, its saying that someone is going to be shot, and most of all its telling people what to think ""Dont find a moral." isnt that against Wiki Rules?

If you pull out a copy of Huck Finn, you'll see that this Notice is actually in the book. We are not being inappropriate or breaking any wiki rules by adding this; Twain himself wrote this in.—Zhaladshar (Talk) 05:39, 19 December 2005 (UTC)

Adventures or The Adventures?[edit]

From User Talk:Zyephyrus, lst:

Huck Finn[edit]


The original title of the work is Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, without "The". The version of the book I have is this one: Twain, Mark. Adventures of Huckleberry Finn (1884). Ed. Bernard De Voto. The Portable Mark Twain. New York: Penguin Books, 1977: 193-539.

The following extract is taken from Rasmussen, R. Kent. Mark Twain A to Z. The Essential Reference to His Life and Writings. New York: Facts on File, 1995: "It should be noted that the full title appearing on the title page and cover of the first edition of this book is Adventures of Huckleberry Finn (Tom Sawyer's Comrade). E.W. Kemble's illustration for the half-title page that opens the first chapter reads The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn; however, "The" is not properly part of the book's title, though it has been used more often than not in reprint editions."

Do the wiki guidelines say that the title used in the article should be the same as the title appearing on the written version used as a source? Anyway, I don't really care what title appears, but since you asked if I had a published version, here it is.

Thank you, I transmit these informations to the Huckleberry Finn Discussion page. --Zyephyrus (talk) 23:03, 28 April 2009 (UTC)

The title has not article 'The'[edit]

Please follow the original Adventures of Huckleberry Finn without article 'The'. The fact is even an object of study, because Twain entitled Tom Sawyer with 'The', but he didn't do the same with Huck. --Albeiror24 (talk) 14:23, 5 August 2011 (UTC)
