The song “don’t want you back” by Backstreet Boys and the poem “a snowflake falls” by Ruth Adams are powerful examples of the amount of impact discoveries have on the characters .

Adventures of Huckleberry Finn "Notice": "Persons attempting to find a motive in this narrative will be prosecuted; persons attempting to find a moral in it will be banished; persons attempting to find a plot in it will be shot." This quote from the very beginning of the novel indicates that this book is classified as satire. This is a red flag to the reader that this story is not as it seems. It may seem like a child’s book, yet it manages to address larger and more complex issues like slavery and racism. The author’s writing style is very informal and colloquial.
Mark Twain and Huckleberry Finn After reading Huck Finn I have gained so much respect for Mark Twain and what he did for books all over the world. The thing I enjoy most about this book is the subtle humor that is interlaced with the satire. Twain uses generous amounts of satire of the white man’s cruelty to black people, of religious hypocrisy, of Romanticism, and of superstition both to amuse the reader and, more importantly, to make the reader aware of the social problems which Twain saw at the time of his youth. The era and setting in which The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn takes place is fundamental to the story but the character’s identities themselves could be placed in just about any modern novel or story. I think some of the books most obvious forms of satire result from dehumanizing black people.
Huck questions why he has not turned in Jim because he wants to be what society depicts as good, but in reality, he does what he knows is right. While Huck is on the raft alone, he begins to question why he helps Jim escape while Miss Watson has done nothing wrong to him. Huck feels terrible but he cannot bring himself to pray that he can do the right thing. “I was trying to make my mouth say the right thing and the clean thing, and go and write to that nigger’s owner and tell where he was; but deep down in me I knowed it was a lie-and He knowed it. You can’t pray a lie-I found that out” (Twain 227).
According to LiteraryDevices.com the word satire is a technique used by writers to expose and criticize foolishness and corruption of an individual or a society by using humor, irony, exaggeration or ridicule. In the Adventures of Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain, Twain uses satire to expose the reader to many human weaknesses or flaws that are corrupting our society. His uses of showing the corruption through said techniques is an important part of this novel. The flaws that Twain puts in this book are not very obvious, but if you read carefully and thoroughly they can be seen clearly. One of the human flaws that we have is the our addiction to alcohol.
The huge controversy about New South editors/publishers being justified in altering Mark Twain’s original format of Huckleberry Finn has become a large topic of discussion among students and adults all over the United states. There are many people that have an opinion on this topic and more and more we are hearing their voices about it. I believe Twain purposely placed the word, “nigger” in his book to cause shock and really emphasize how unusual the relationship between Huck and Jim had become. New South Editors/Publishers were not justified, in my opinion, to change Twain’s work because the word was put there to stand out and really show you the way people felt back in 1885. The feeling and points Twain was trying to convey with the word,
Encountering Conflict SAC Prompt: ‘Conflict brings out unexpected qualities in people’. Although conflict is so often associated with difficulty and suffering, it is clear that through these debacles and controversy that it brings out unexpected and even surprising qualities in people. In The Crucible written by Arthur Miller, Arthur uses three very good characters to demonstrate and manifest the conflict in the story, and to show the readers how underlying qualities are evident in people. John Proctor, a man of pride and dignity, is what we think off him. But it is only through all the turmoil and conflict that we actually realise that he has many unforeseen traits.
