Huck Finnish

November 2023

I have a question for you after reading the June/July issue. In the article “One Hundred Years of Huckleberry Finn,” you give the year 1904 for the first Finnish translation of Twain’s novel, but then on page 84 you also list 1927 for the first Finnish translation. Which year is the correct one?

The correct date is 1904.

We hope you enjoy our work.
