  • Don't Mess With "Huckleberry Finn" Wording

    The words used in "Huckleberry Finn" are perfect for the novel, and any changes would ultimately change the meaning of the entire story. Each character uses their own style of banter, which makes them unique and stand out among other characters. The drawl works perfectly throughout the novel, and any changes would be misguided at best.

  • Yes, if we altered the wording of "Huckleberry Finn", the meaning would be changed.

    Yes, if we altered the wording of "Huckleberry Finn", the meaning would be changed. If some one were to change Huck Finn or bowdlerize it in any way, the meaning would be badly changed. The book would lose its meaning as being a book of respect and friendship across races.

  • It Wouldn't Be Accurate

    I believe if we alter the wording of Huckleberry Finn, you won't have the same book because altering it would make it wholly inaccurate. Huckleberry Finn reflects the values of society during the time it was written, it shouldn't be altered to make people feel better. I find it a good thing that people can still read it, but realize how repulsive the behavior and speech is.

  • Meaning is derived through story.

    If the wording of Huckleberry Finn was changed, the meaning would not be changed. The moral of a story is found within the plot. Altering the wording, however, may narrow the audience to which it speaks because fewer people would be able to relate. In using vernacular terms, Twain established a clear environment that defines a region.

  • If we altered the wording of "Huckleberry Finn", the meaning would not change.

    If we altered the wording of "Huckleberry Finn", the meaning would not change. However, I think it is wrong that we rewrite any book, especially this one. They are taking the offensive language out, one word in particular that is referenced like 118 times and using a more appropriate one. I assume it is geared toward high school and earlier students that read the book in class. However, when the book was written, the meaning of the word was highly accepted and I do not think we should be changing it.
