Does Mark Twain’s satire become sarcasm and does he cross the line of propriety in The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn? As an introduction of satire, class members view an excerpt from The Daily Show and discuss Stewart's use of this literary device.They then read the first chapter of Twain’s novel and identify the targets of his satire. In conclusions, learners analyze either Huck’s soliloquy on the efficacy of prayer, Pap’s rant about the government, or Huck’s description of Emmeline Grangerford.
