The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, a novel by Mark Twain was published in the U.K. in 1884. Then it was later published in 1885 in the United States.
When was it written?
It was written in two short bursts. Twain wrote the first part in 1876 and he finished it up in 1882 after being inspired to dive in and finish it up.
How did Twain's stories comment on society?
He was one of the most important writers (and still remains) on race and slavery. He shows two perspectives from his books. An example would be in Huckleberry Finn. He clearly knew the blacks/slaves perspective from that point in time but he also portrayed the rest of society's thoughts through Huck. Huck is never against slavery so this shows us how Twain was showing us the different views in the society through his literature.
