The Raft, the River, and The Weird Ending of Huckleberry Finn: Crash Course Literature 303

This week, we’re continuing our discussion of Mark Twain’s ‘The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn.’

This is part two of our talk about Huck Finn, and this time we’re looking at the metaphors in the book, a little bit about what the metaphors like the Island and the River and the Raft might mean, and why you should pay attention to said metaphors.

We’ll also look at the ending of the book, which a lot of people (including us) believe isn’t up to the standards of the rest of the novel.
