Description

Mark Twainthe pen name of Samuel L. Clemensis considered to be one of the greatest American writers, and ADVENTURES OF HUCKLEBERRY FINN is thought by many to be the most important American novel. However, the language and attitudes in Twains books make many people uncomfortable, since they reflect a more racist time in our countrys history. As a result, there is a great deal of controversy over whether his books should be taught in school. Author Michelle M. Houle discusses Twains life and times and analyzes two of his best known books. She also explores the history of book censorship, outlining why it occurs and possible ways to address it. She helps readers make up their own minds about whether the books should be banned.
