Ask any person anywhere in the world to give an example of a classic book of US literature and it is a safe bet this one will come out among the top three The only reason I am going to mention the plot for such famous book is the fact that I always do it I am not breaking my own tradition in this case So an orphan boy and a runaway slave travel together in Southern US One of the most interesting parts of the book for me was gradual change in Huck s attitude towards Jim he stops regarding the latter as a slave and starts thinking about him as an equal human being There is an obvious anti racist message in the book It also happens to have very funny laugh out loud moments It also contains satirical depiction of some aspects of life in small US cities in the early nineteenth ce A Nineteenth Century Boy From A Mississippi River Town Recounts His Adventures As He Travels Down The River With A Runaway Slave, Encountering A Family Involved In A Feud, Two Scoundrels Pretending To Be Royalty, And Tom Sawyer S Aunt Who Mistakes Him For Tom I about made up my mind to pray and see if I couldn t try to quit being the kind of boy I was, and be better So I kneeled down But the words wouldn t come Why wouldn t they It warn t no use to try and hide it from Him Nor from me, neither I knowed very well why they wouldn t come It was because my heart wasn t right it was because I warn t square it was because I was playing double I was letting on to give up sin, but away inside of me I was holding on to the biggest one of all I was trying to make my mouth say I would do the right thing and the clean thing, and go and write to Jim s owner and tell where he was but deep down in me I knowed it was a lie and He knowed it You can t pray a lie I found that outIt was a close place I took it up, and held it in my hand I was a trembling, because I d got to decide, forever, betwi .
That is just the way with some people They get down on a thing when they don t know nothing about it What makes a classic A question I have had to ask myself repeatedly over the last few days, after students in Grade 8 received the task to come to the library and check out a classic to read There was a list with the usual suggestions, but students ventured out and started to explore shelves, and then came to me with a wide range of books, repeating the question Is this a classic Why did I turn down the diary of a wimpy kid, they wanted to know, and accept Huckleberry Finn, even though it was so much harder to understand, and also, they had heard it was racist All good questions, and I was careful not to g ,, , , , , , , , , , , ,, , , , , , , , , , ,, , , ,, , , , , ,,, ,, ,

The first problem is with the librarians who think think this is close enough to the original that it should be combined and therefore share the ratings of Mark Twain s original book There was a long discussion in the librarian thread where some librarians thought it was essentially the same book, perhaps most So it was combined and the edition of the book I r Hemingway said American fiction begins and ends with Huck Finn, and he s right Twain s most famous novel is a tour de force He delves into issues such as racism, friendship, war, religion, and freedom with an uncanny combination of lightheartedness and gravitas There are several moments in the book that are hilarious, but when I finished the book, I knew I had read something profound This is a book that everyone should read.
