“Huckleberry Finn” Controversy is were many forms of literature thrive. Slavery and race has been a major controversy in the U.S. for most of its time as a nation. Influencing literature from the American past with the dialect and society of the time of publication. Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain is not racist for its time period. It is not racist because it was progressive at the time of its release, it teaches high school students about the american past, and was written for its time frame.

My personal belief is that history and literacy are needed to understand history. In history, a person must be able to not just read it but understand it, and that is where the literacy or understanding is history come into play. Being able to read history is one thing, but when a person can apply that history to something else is when a person understanding coming into play because that person is able to have the competence or knowledge in a specified area. Reading literacy In history, there are many ways to “understanding” it, but reading history takes more than just reading it line by line to comprehend it. According to Chauncey Monte-Sano and Denise Miles states that students “ In reading historical texts, they often focus on the literal meaning of documents and miss intertextual reading strategies that would promote interpretive work” (Toward Disciplinary reading and writing in history 31) Teaching student how to read history and look at the bigger picture is what reading literacy is about; instead of looking at the big picture the students are only looking at the small picture.
Mark Twain’s characters resemble life-like portrayals as he focuses on presenting life-like situation. His narrative style makes every reader to muse over his childhood memories.

When people read others writing, whether it is contemporary or classic literature, they are taught about how it is human nature to always want more than they currently have and the dangers that can arise from not being humble, which helps shape their identity and can be used as a guide throughout life. People may want to learn about their fate, but when they hear it, they will act in ways that would normally seem strange, causing them to strive to be
This particular river is important because it has been a focal point in American history where commerce, agriculture, and even literature are best understood (Dictionary of American History, 2003). It is evident that Huck’s story illustrated the dialect, customs, topography, and other specific features of Missouri in the 1800s. On the other hand, Campbell’s work is a contemporary examination of rural life in post-industrial Michigan. While these literary works depict the life of people at a different but definite time, it cannot be denied that regionalism is relevant in contemporary literature as the latter becomes the backbone of understanding what the modern society is all about by look back of what once used to
Literature represents the culture and tradition of a language or a people. For many, the word literature suggests a higher art form. In academia, this decoding of the text is often carried out through the use of literary theory using by a mythological, sociological, historical, psychological, or other approaches to better understand the context and depth of a work.
