Adventures of Huckleberry Finn

Adventures of Huckleberry Finn

This must be five to six paragraphs. Each paragraph in the body of the essay must be 6-8 sentences in length. Choose one of the conflicts of the novel and discuss how Mark Twain utilizes them in the book. The theme is a life lesson/moral that Huck Finn learns, whether about society or himself or because of his adventures. Cite examples from the book to support your view.
Directions:
– Use events and descriptions from the novel in the essay to make your point: use at least five concrete details (scenes from the book, either quoted or paraphrased, and cited directly) To analyze a theme thoroughly discuss scenes throughout the story where the theme appears to show Huck’s growth. Correct MLA citations format: First quote, use author’s last name and page, for example, According to Huck Finn, “quote here” (Twain 14). For all remaining quotes, you only need the page number; for example, Jim replies, “another quote” (15).
– Analyze what the theme means before you start the first paragraph: How does this theme relate to situations in society? Compare ideas, events, and the consequences that Huck faced with current events. Discuss these comparisons in the essay, as long as the main focus is on Huck Finn.
– Explain the meaning of the theme EVERY time you discuss a new event in the story: How do the scenes in the book fit together to create a bigger picture? What is Twain really trying to say about growing up, achieving freedom, or discovering the difference between appearances and reality, for instance.
– To earn an A, need to show fabulous insight: Go beyond the obvious and use real higher-level thinking. ELABORATE! When you have a great thought explain it further until your point has become crystal clear. Refer back to the book whenever necessary.
– Discuss at least ONE of these elements in the paper, explaining how its supports the theme: Setting, Symbolism, Mark Twain’s use of irony and/or exaggeration, or Audience.
– Write in third person; No “I,” “me,” “myself,” “we,” “our,” “ourselves,” etc. (Likewise, no second person: “you”).
– Italicize the title of the book every time you use it. Also, do not forget to cite the page number of every quote or scene in the essay.
– Use only original thoughts: NO PLAGIARISM.
Outline:
– Attention-Getter: “Hook” the reader with an interesting quote or short scene from the book, an anecdote, or unique description of your theme. Do not use questions. Do not start the essay with “I am going to write about how appearance versus reality is shown in Huck Finn.”
– Middle of intro: Elaborate on the attention-getter and also mention the theme here.
– Theme statement: Summarize what your main point is. What is Twain trying to say about this theme, and how does he portray it through Huckleberry Finn? Some possible ways to start a theme statement would be “In Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, Mark Twain shows that…” “In the novel The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, by Mark Twain, the protagonist Huck learns that…” (You can use one or two sentences for the theme statement- no more than that).
Body Paragraphs (Arrange the scenes you will be discussing in chronological order or in order of their importance to the theme, whichever makes sense to you):
– Each paragraph in the body must contain the following:
– Topic Sentence: Summarize one aspect of your theme.
– Describe a theme from the book that illustrates the aspect of your theme: Include whatever character descriptions and actions that are most appropriate.
– Explain more how you theme relates to the scene you described: You will need to do this in almost every paragraph. Discuss Huck’s reactions to characters and events, as well as the effects of those characters/actions on Huck or others. (Use some expressions besides “for example”).
– Elaborate on the theme’s meaning: You will probably be doing this more as you reach your conclusions. This is where you “go deep” to analyze how this theme applies universally to society. (Do not use “for example” more than once in your entire paper. Use other transitions).
– Transition: Connect one scene with the next; do not just jump into a new scene without connecting it to the next one in some way. Use transitional phrases and clauses.
Conclusion Paragraph:
– Restate most important observations made in the body paragraphs.
– Paraphrase the theme statement, or at least one part of it, somewhere in this paragraph.
– New insights/final analysis of the theme: create a commentary about human nature or how society works (or does not work).
