Re: Do we change Huckleberry Finn or not?Mar 26th, 2011
Tom Sawyer perhaps, but Twain himself said Huckleberry Finn was adult literature. Also, it would be a very rare ten-year-old who could understand all of the literary allusions in the book.
Even if they are childrens books they should remain as written. With all the multi-culturalism taught in schools today they would actually be a good tool to show why it is taught and why it is so important to accept others as equals. They are a snapshot of history and should be used as historical texts.
