Word Count: 4,694
In Mark Twains two major works The Adventures of Tom Sawyer and its sequel The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn he develops and displays his humoristic abilities by concealing within them deeper meanings ultimately producing a satire of the region in which he lived Examined within this paper are the methods which Twain uses to conceal his satire within the above two novels The majority of his points are made using humor but he also takes advantage of the use of southwestern dialect and Huck Finns childlike innocence Much of the content of the two novels involve the region in which Twain lived as well as certain places or events in his lifetime The aspects of his past that lead to his writing style as well as his life on the Mississippi is discussed as far as is relevant to support the thesis The information gathered to research the satirical aspect of Twains writing is primarily in the form of books Several books as well as one critical essay were referenced and included in the Bibliography in order to write the research paper The research revealed his novels were deeply influenced by Twains past His nature causes him to write in the manner he does In his past people tried to stifle his creative mind and as a result his works are have their most important meanings hidden below the surface This tendency is almost instinctive In conclusion this entire paper may violate Twains notice in The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn in that it attempts to find a motive a moral and a plot in the narrative and it may lead its author to be subject to prosecution banishment andor shooting However the novel is perhaps the best of its kind and even in its warning it suggests a deeper meaning to the entire book But like the warning if one reads the book and accepts it at face value they will miss out
