Synopsis: Adventures of Huckleberry Finn written by literature & fiction icon Mark Twain is a classic fiction novel which encompasses the humor & satire genre. Adventures of Huckleberry Finn is set in a Southern Antebellum society and is noted for its colorful description of people and places along the Mississippi River. Mark Twain's Adventures of Huckleberry Finn has been studied by literature & fiction critics from its initial publication date in the late 1800's to the present time. The classic fiction novel while in the humor & satire genre isn't without controversy. Upon the books initial publication it was criticized because of its coarse language and the book continues to be criticized because of its perceived use of racial stereotypes and because of its frequent use of the "n-word" racial slur. However, the protagonist and the tenor of the book are anti-racist which helps solidify the classic book's place in literature & fiction history. Adventures of Huckleberry Finn is a satire that is preceded by Mark Twain's The Adventures of Tom Sawyer. Lastly, the Mark Twain satire is followed by Tom Sawyer Abroad.

Review: Mark Twain's classic novel, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, tells the story of a teenaged misfit who finds himself floating on a raft down the Mississippi River with an escaping slave, Jim. In the course of their perilous journey, Huck and Jim meet adventure, danger, and a cast of characters who are sometimes menacing and often hilarious.

Though some of the situations in Huckleberry Finn are funny in themselves (the cockeyed Shakespeare production in Chapter 21 leaps instantly to mind), this book's humor is found mostly in Huck's unique worldview and his way of expressing himself. Describing his brief sojourn with the Widow Douglas after she adopts him, Huck says: "After supper she got out her book and learned me about Moses and the Bulrushers, and I was in a sweat to find out all about him; but by and by she let it out that Moses had been dead a considerable long time; so then I didn't care no more about him, because I don't take no stock in dead people." Underlying Twain's good humor is a dark subcurrent of Antebellum cruelty and injustice that makes The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn a frequently funny book with a serious message.
