Description:

The paper demonstrates how "Emma", "The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn' and "My Name is Asher Lev" all chronicle the difficult socialization process of mid-or late adolescents. The paper compares the outlook of the three writers and relates that while Austen's early 19th century work sees an adolescent's desire to be individualistic as a danger, Twain and Potok's American perspectives endorse an adolescent's desire to rebel and to follow his inner moral compass.
