Excerpt:
Since its publication in 1884 scholars and critics have discussed the novel’s plot, treatment of race, resolution, characterization, and use of language and interpreted them in different ways. Language, in the form of innovative dialect and controversial speech must be seen as a focal point. The use of dialect is a distinguishing feature, which emphasizes the opinion of literary historians who placed the work firmly within the movement of American Realism. Twain’s appropriate use of this different English dialects give the novel a very realistic touch, which finds its best expression in the various dialogues between Jim and Huck.
