  • Hey Tuan, I agree with you that Mark Twain’s use of dialect throughout the book is a clever and an effective way to convey a message to the audience and make the story more realistic. I think it’s interesting how Jim’s dialect shows a lot about his background, including education, and his struggle in pronouncing some words correctly. Although the…Read More

    Irene commented on the post, Deep Down in Huck

    Jason, I think you did a nice job analyzing Huck Finn. I wrote about Huck Finn for this blogging discussion, too, and I agree with you that Huck following his conscience and going against what is the law in the white society has impacted other characters in positive ways in the book. I also agree that Huck is often confused, because he is…Read More

    • Hi, Irene! Great job with this character analysis! I really like how you talked about the significance of Huck’s moral dilemma and I talked about it in my post about whether or not Mark Twain is racist too. I also like the evidence that you used to support your argument. That quote is a good representation of his moral conflict and it shows Huck beginning to change his views on slavery. In your post you talk about Huck lying, stealing and cheating, but then later talk about his willingness to do what is right and his morality. I am curious about whether or not you think Huck has good morals even though he has done all of these things. I also wonder whether or not you think Huck has begun to see all slaves as human beings instead of property or just Jim especially since he says Jim is “white inside.”
