A book review on Mark Twain's famous novel "The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn". The paper explores how Huck Finn is the innocent who serves to illuminate the hypocrisy and corruption of society through his pragmatic nature, his willingness to accept others until they show their true colors, and his innate sense of honor and fairness. The writer believes Huck does not learn the sort of thing found in books, and indicates that Twain uses this novel as a way of making fun of a certain genre of books, the sort of high adventures that fascinate Tom Sawyer and that are very different from the real world in which Tom and Huck live.

From the Paper:

"Huck's education and his mode of learning is based on reality--he sees the world as it is presented to him and makes his decisions based on an understanding of human nature and his own innate sense of right and wrong. Tom, on the other hand, tries again and again to shape the world into the romantic notion he has derived from adventure novels. Huck is straightforward when left to his own devices, while Tom is devious for the sake of being devious. Huck admires Tom, but he has few illusions about the romanticism of his friend."
