In public schools today numerous controversial issues arise Certain forms of literature seem to be offensive to some readers An example of these conflicts is the classic novel The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain Although it contains disputatious subjects Huckleberry Finn should continue to be taught in public school systems Critics have found the book in their opinions to be racist trash and without a purpose One of the main issues concerning the book is racism The term nigger referring to African Americans is used 215 times in the novel Today that term is considered racist however back when the book was written it was a common expression Nowadays slavery is unacceptable whereas in Twains time it was ordinary Critics have stated that Huck Finn is unacceptable for school children They contest that the novel was written for adult readers because of graphic scenes Some of these episodes would include Huck faking his own death and Jim finding Paps dead body lying in a boat These analysts argue that children should be forbidden to read the publication In this day and age High schoolers should be able to handle the material offered in Twains timeless edition Many commentators protest that Huck Finn is pointless and without purpose This accusation is unsuitable due to the accuracy of the dialects as well as the historical ideas and morals of society that can just as well be found in an American history book Mark Twain stated in the introduction of the book that readers should not even try to find a motiveor a moral This proclamation of the author is ironic because there is a strong message to be found in Huckleberry Finn which in turn gives it a purpose Although Huck Finn according to some people has flaws it is truly an excellent piece of literature that should be read by everyone
