Exhibit | “Trash of the Veriest Sort”: Challenges to Adventures of Huckleberry Finn


Mark Twain published Adventures of Huckleberry Finn in the United States in 1885 to mostly — but not entirely — favorable reviews. While the nature of the criticism has changed, there has always been controversy surrounding the book. This exhibit offers a look at how that criticism has changed from publication through the present.
