Literary Reference Material Recommendation

I found this book to be a phenomenal reference to the work. The depth and insight this work adds to the story really helps the literary student pick-up on the nuances that are so artfully layered in the work. If you were using Huckleberry Finn in any in-depth analysis, you would be foolish not to listen to this material first.
