Adventures of Huckleberry Finn

by Mark Twain

Adventures of Huckleberry Finn Notice Summary

  • When our story opens…
  • Wait a minute, the author wants to say something.
  • And he says: "Persons attempting to find a motive in this narrative will be executed; persons attempting to find a moral in it will be banished; persons attempting to find a plot in it will be shot."
  • Um, okay. That's nice.
