The paper explores how humor is used as a narrative strategy in Mark Twain's novel, "Huckleberry Finn." The paper explains how Twain embedded humor into the pattern of ideas in the novel and examines the language and tone of the novel.

From the Paper:

"There is a view of "Huckleberry Finn" that it is not mainly a humorous book, that instead it is an epic enterprise of high seriousness. In Eliot's opinion, for example, "Huckleberry Finn" resonates with seriousness because of the River which is the only natural force that can wholly determine the course of human peregrination, never wholly charitable it changes its pace, it shifts its channel. (Eliot)"
