Annotation

Focusing on the overarching theme of religious satire in The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, this study reveals the novel's hidden motive, moral and plot. The author considers generations of criticism spanning the 19th to 21st centuries, along with new textual evidence showing how Twain's style dissects Huck's conscience to propose humane amorality as a corrective to moral absolutes.
