Mark Twain used a sytiracl style while Barbara Smuckers’s style was very direct. To start off Mark Twain had Jim speak poor english showing that he had no chance to learn how to properly read and write. This is satiracl because that he is really making a mockery of racism by showing how they made Jim so dumb and how it was so wrong not to give him a proper education. Here is an example of Jim showing his poor level of education: Well, it 's a blame ridicklous way, en I doan ' want to hear no mo ' 'bout it Dey ain ' no sense in it."

We are all a product of where we come from but we do not have to let that define us as how we behave. Through the journey of Huck we see him develop into a well rounded person who figured out the difference between right and wrong. His journey was internal evolution but Julillys evolution was to grow as a person and was external. Hers was different due to the fact she already had good morals and a good sense already of what was right and what was wrong. Humans love a happy ending we love to see the underdog win. It is the case here too we learn about human nature is that we love to hear uplifting and heartwarming stories, we love to be inspired no one likes sadness. Also even though Twains style and Smuckers Writting style were much different they were both able to acomplish to have novels that every human can relate to. Just because something is hard will you give up? Just because your not quite where you want to be in your life are you going to give up? Just beacause your not a perfect person are you going to give?
