Filled With Generic Cigarette Cartons Tabloids And with eneric cigarette cartons tabloids and meats are a half dozen kids A Map to the Next World glazed with spittle and howling like Helen Keller over the water pump but your eyes return to the small sad boy sitting in the cart Hisaze imploring suggestive of a caged intellect breaks your heart so you turn and comparison shop for chewing um or breath mints He is condemned to a very dim horizon and there s absolutely nothing you can do about it so you might as well buy some Altoids and forget about it That boy is the spiritual descendant of Huckleberry Finn The nigger controversy is there still one is terribly inconseuential It almost seems too obvious to point out that this is a firstly a period novel meaning it that occurs at a very specific historical moment at a specific location and b secondly a first person narrative which is therefore saddled with the language perspective and nascent ideologies of its narrator Should we expect a mostly uneducated abused adolescent son of a racist alcoholic who is living in the South before the Civil War to have a respectful intellectually enlightened perspective toward black people Should the character of Huck Finn in other words be ahistorical anachronistic Certainly not if we expect any semblance of honesty from our other words be ahistorical anachronistic Certainly not if we expect any semblance of honesty from our literature Far troubling to many critics is the ending of Huckleberry semblance of honesty from our national literature Far troubling to many critics is the ending of Huckleberry when by a freakishly literary coincidence Huck Finn is mistaken for Tom Sawyer by Tom s relatives who happen to be holding Jim the slave on the run in hopes of collecting a reward from his owners There are all sorts of contrivances in this scenario the likes of which haven t been seen since the olden age of Three s Company which ends with Tom arriving and devising a ridiculously elaborate scheme for rescuing Jim All in all the ending didn t bother me as much as it bothered some essayists I ve read That is it didn t strike me as especially conspicuous in a novel which relies a Yuyu Hakusho : Le Gardien des mes, tome 6 great deal on narrative implausibility and coincidence Sure Tom Sawyer is something of an idiot as we discover but in a novel that includes faked deaths and absurd con jobs his idiocy seems well placed In the end I suppose thereatest thing I can say about this novel is that it left me wondering what happened to Huck Finn Would his intellect and compassion escape from his circumstances or would he become yet another bigoted abusive father suiring another brood of dirty doomed children around a fluorescently lit Wal Mart. Erlebnissen auf dem Mississippi durch einen Zufall wiedertreffen Gemeinsam kehren sie nach St Petersburg zurück Huck aber treibt es bald schon weiter in Richtung Westen. THE Greatest American Novel Well No wonder the Spanish think themselves superior with their uixote undoubtedly a blueprint for this mischievous Every Boy Huck Spanish think themselves superior with their uixote undoubtedly a blueprint for this mischievous Every Boy Huck is the full embodiment of THE American Fantasy mainly that dire mi That is just the way with some people They et down on a thing when they don t know nothing about itWhat makes a classic A uestion I have had to ask myself repeatedly over the last few days after students in Grade 8 received the task to come to the library and check out a classic to read There was a list with the usual suggestions but students ventured out and started to explore shelves and then came to me with a wide range of books repeating the uestionIs this a classicWhy did I turn down the diary of a wimpy kid they wanted to know and accept Huckleberry Finn even though it was so much harder to understand and also they had heard it was racistAll ood uestions and I was careful not to ive a too categorical answer The last thing I wanted was for them to make the connotation that a classic is a boring must while a ood book is what the teachers and librarians would refuseDifficultI found myself talking about the Count of Monte Cristo and Voldemort about Tom Sawyer and Oliver Twist in comparison to Harry Potter and I made a case for trying to et through parts of Huckleberry Finn even though the language is challenging mainly because it contains exactly the message that people become unfair when they don t know nothing about itI found myself talking about discovering other times other societies other ideas of justice and hierarchy and I talked about living in the mind of someone other than oneself Imagine Huckleberry on that raft on the Mississippi I said Imagine him
