Adventures of Huckleberry Finn Presentation

In this presentation, we will discuss the character of Huck as a story of initiation and his relationship with Jim. We will question aspects of the novel and try to understand Ernest Hemingway’s words “All modern American literature comes from one book by Mark Twain called Huckleberry Finn… it’s the best book we’ve had… There was nothing before. There has been nothing so good since.”
