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.

an American history book. Mark Twain stated in the introduction of the book that readers should not even try "to find a motive…or 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.
