New Edition of 'Huckleberry Finn' to lose the N-word.
I thought I'd post this article for anybody interested to read and discuss. I won't offer my feelings on it directly, though anybody who knows me even vaguely probably has a good idea as to what my opinion is on the subject.
A general summary: NewSouth Books is planning to publish a version of Mark Twain's The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn that is devoid of words such as "nigger" and "injun," effectively marketing the book toward readers who might be more encouraged to read based on the absence of those terms.
What are your feelings on this optional modification? Do you support it wholeheartedly? Do you think it's a travesty? Let us know!
