Literary Explorations I
Adventures of Huckleberry Finn has been an incendiary novel for decades; it has raised controversy in schools for at least half a century (Kim 1). Many have sought to remove it from literature classes, for various reasons, whether because of its racism, improper language, or alleged corrupting affects (Liechty). These arguments have not convinced the public to ban this book; none of the arguments used have been effective. There is no reason for us to break this trend.
