This paper deals with the issues of racism, morals, and religious values, as presented in Mark Twain's "The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn." In contrast to many of Twain's critics, who believe that Twain was a racist and find his writings insulting to African Americans, this paper argues that Twain was actually opposed to the way African Americans were treated and wrote in a way that accurately demonstrated the ugliness of that treatment.

"Many works of literature end up touching on morals and values of society. Huckleberry Finn written by mark Twain is one of the classic works of all time. At first pass it appears to be the story of a boy who struggles through the process of becoming a young teen. The survival skills are combined with the usual discovery of girls, and of societal mandates along the way.
