115: The Worth of Huckleberry Finn
The Worth of Huckleberry Finn I feel that Huckleberry Finn is a valuable commentary on the habits of humanity during that era. Mark Twain set a high standard for future writers to follow, and at the same time made repeated condescending remarks about the way people, specifically southern adults, think. Another goal of his at the time was probably ... too, once, and this was how they thought at that age. Another reason I felt that this book is valuable is that it shows the feelings of not only the people, but also of Mark Twain toward slavery and slaves at the time the book was written. An example of Mark Twain's feelings toward humanity during the era can be found in the section of the book when Huck finds himself in the middle of a feud between the Grangerfords and the Wilkses. In this ...
116: Huck Finn Racism
... in Huckleberry Finn. This story takes place at a time where slavery was considered moral. Blacks were considered inferior to whites, but Huckleberry challenges the notion that he was raised upon. Through Huckleberry s adventures Twain expresses his challenge towards civilization s rules and moral code. One must read between the lines and reach for the meaning in Mark Twain s subtle literature dialog. If one were to do this that one would realize that it is not racist, but anti-slavery. For someone to think that Twain considering the era was racist would ludicrous. Considering that Mark Twain is a revolutionary writer and must use detail from an era to make the story unique he shouldn t be considered racist. Their ...
117: Huck Finn
... to escape a false charge of murder. The rest of the story follows all of their exciting and action packed adventures down the Mississippi River. Themes Slavery is a big theme in this story. Mark Twain was obviously against slavery because it is hypocritical. Throughout the book we see Huck interacting with Jim as human to human, while everyone else treats him like a piece of property. He was especially against the Christians who promoted slavery, since it is obviously wrong and against Christian ideals. Twain also shows the hypocrisy in another theme, religion. In one scene, the Shepardsons and the Gangerfords are listening to a sermon about brotherly love, and in the next scene they are shooting and killing each other. This is exactly the kind of behavior that twain didn’t like. However, the main theme in this book is breaking free. He urges his readers to do the right thing, not necessarily what everyone else is doing. He illustrates this ideal with ...
118: Huck Finn The Twisting Tides O
In recent years, there has been increasing discussion of the seemingly racist ideas expressed by Mark Twain in The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. In some cases, the novel has been banned by public school systems and even censored by public libraries. Along with the excessive use of the word, nigger, the basis ... quite saddening, is probably accurate. Jim and the millions of other slaves in the South were not given or allowed any formal education, were never allowed any independent thought and were constantly maltreated and abused. Twain is merely portraying a very realistic slave in the South during that time period. To say that Twain is racist because of his desire for historical accuracy is absurd. He simple strives to show a true representation of society s view of slaves. Despite the few incidences of which Jim's description ...
119: Huckleberry Finn - A Racist No
Huckleberry Finn - A Racist Novel? There is a major argument among literary critics whether Huckleberry Finn, by Mark Twain, is or is not a racist novel. The question boils down to the depiction of Jim, the black slave, and to the way he is treated by Huck and other characters. The use of the word "nigger" is also a point raised by some critics, who feel that Twain uses the word too much and too loosely. Mark Twain never presents Jim in a negative light. He does not show Jim as a drunkard, as a mean person or as a cheat. This is in contrast to the way Huck's (white) father ...
120: Huckleberry Finn: Lack of Education
... one, proper education of all children is vital. While we recognize this today, it has not always been that way. The country is much more focused on educating its people today than ever before. Mark Twain, the author of Huckleberry Finn, recognized the importance of education in a time when not everyone did. Twain lived during the mid-1800s, and used his writing to express his opinions that could be considered in many ways ahead of his time. Throughout Huckleberry Finn, Mark Twain used satire to show that a lack of education in a society’s people provokes serious consequences. The first example of Twain’s satire to be intrudes in the novel is the character called ...
