The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn Part 1: Crash Course Literature 302

In which John Green teaches you about Mark Twain’s The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn.

This week, we’ll talk a little bit about Samuel Langhorne Clemens, who wrote under the name Mark Twain, and how he mined his early life for decades to produce his pretty well-loved body of work.

By far the best of Twain’s novels, Huckleberry Finn has a lot to say about life in America around the Civil War, and it resonates today with its messages on race, class, and what exactly freedom is.
