Mark Twain’s notorious ‘Huckleberry Finn’ uses literature as an incredible tool in addressing certain aspects of the society. This provokes a troubling yet satisfying tension between the reader and the narrator. Mark Twain represents the societal crisis, racism, in a factious novel by illustrating the issue of racism in a way that portrays reality as infinitely more horrifying.

Deemed as his most famous novel, A Clockwork Orange has been regarded considerably influential in areas of literary, visual, and music culture. However, prior to its release there was hesitation on publishing the novel due to worries of being an ‘enormous flop’ (Independent, 2012). It was prompted that, although illustrating a well-kept storyline and pleasant detail, the language would be too challenging to comprehend.
But Baudrillard goes on to argue that 9/11 defies not just morality, but any form of interpretation. This statement feeds back to the earlier idea that the sheer size and scale of the attacks and their enormous visual symbolism posed specific problems for writers attempting to accommodate the subject into conventional fictional narratives.
