This is a rough draft essay I've written. What can I do to improve it?In The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain, there are many themes in the book that some people may find offensive, but ultimately the book should still be included in the student curriculum. Although the book may use racial slurs and discrimination, the book itself is not racist. That is what many of the article writers failed to see when writing an essay about the book. One must understand that the book itself, from a historical point of view, is just explaining how life was like back in slavery times. June Smiley claimed that she felt uncomfterable every time she read the book, including in school. However, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn should not be looked down upon merely because of the racist things that appear throughout the book. The book overall features many exciting elements throughout the characters journey. Huckleberry is an interesting character, who merely grows up in a time where racism and slavery is tolerated, and so does not know any better. Smith also makes many comments in his article about the book and how it concerns racism and the character of Jim. In the book, Jim is treated very poorly by many of the white characters and portrayed as a stereotypical black man. Although no one should disagree that Jim isn’t treated very well in the story by the other characters, Huckleberry eventually sees Jim as a close companion and friend and describes him as being "white inside." This is meant to show by the book that whites and blacks can get along and live together in peace and harmony. Lastly, Toni Morrison is the last to give a review of The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain. He describes his rage and hatred towards the book, and basically speaks of how it is in no way a benefit to society. It can be argued against this, as Huckleberry Finn has been an enjoyable read to many people and Mark Twain is a world famous writer. To say the book, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, has no point or reason, is just absurd. In conclusion, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn should be included in the student curriculum because it is a very good book and the reader can learn many things from it. While there are marks of racism throughout the book, Mark Twain, the author, was merely showing how life was like back in those days and how blacks were treated. He’s not trying to say whites are better than blacks or vice versa. That’s just how the world was life back then.
