What comments does this video clip make about society? Where can we find examples of Satire in The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn? Many Different Themes including Religion, Superstition, racism, slavery, and romanticism Chapter 34 and 38:
Huck explains to Tom that there is a real simple way to get Jim out, but Tom thinks it is too easy and wants it to be more of an adventure. Jim becomes an object of entertainment for Tom rather than a human being. As time goes on, Huck begins to take on Tom's traits. (Chapter 38) Twain is commenting on the influence of society. The treatment of Jim could be described as cruel and inhumane. All three of the characters (HUCK, TOM, and JIM) are reverting back to how they were at the beginning of the novel. In some ways, Tom and Huck become no better than the slave owners.
Can you think of any other examples of Satire throughout the NOVEL? Chapter 31
