This paper examines how Mark Twain's "The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn" is a novel about a young boy's coming of age in Missouri of the mid-1800s and how it is the story of Huck's struggle to win freedom for himself and Jim, a Negro slave. It looks at how it is considered one of the greatest novels because the novel conceals Twain's opinions within what is seemingly a child's book. Although Mark Twain's novel "Huckleberry Finn" was disliked for being "unsuitable" for young readers, it is also appreciated for its depiction of the antebellum south, its view point of both slavery and study of a teenager coming of age.

From the Paper:

"As the novel continues, Pap becomes a big influence on Huck's life. He kidnaps Huck and takes him to a cabin out in the woods to try and "decivilize" Huck. For a while, Huck enjoys the lazy life, even while Pap abuses him when he drinks. When he could not take any more beatings, he decides to run away to an island down the Mississippi River called Jackson's Island. Here he meets Miss Watson's runaway slave Jim. When he first finds Jim on the island, he is glad simply because he wants companionship."
