Huckleberry Finn - Social Commentary Regarding the Morality of Humanity
Okay so I am laying it on very thick. I do lOVE the class and actually planning on taking it again on a graduate level. There will be a one week condensed grad class happening right on Twain's porch in Elmira, New York. Maybe I'll get to sit in his rocking chair. I know...I know I am a major book nerd for admitting this but I see it truly as a life time experience.
To bore you a bit more with my Twain obssesion and belief that he was a master mind, especially when it came to social commentary in Post-Reconstruction Period of the Civil War, I will come back and post my critique of The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. Hopefully I can crank this baby out and get back to the actual reading part!
