Adventures of Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain (1884)



Brief Synopsis

Please add a brief overview of Adventures of Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain.


Set in the mid-1800s, Twain's classic follows the adventures of young Huckleberry Finn and a runaway slave as they embark down the Mississippi River. Through their travels, Twain comments on Southern culture in the pre-Civil War era.



Allusions in Popular Music

Please add additional entries following the format modeled below.


"Especially in Michigan" by Red Hot Chili Peppers

from Stadium Arcadium (2006)


In typical Chili Peppers fashion, there seems to be little reason for this brief allusion to the controversial novel by Mark Twain beyond the rhyme. The lines read:


C'mon Huckleberry Finn / Show me how to make her grin / .....Well I'm in Michigan


One might infer that Huckleberry Finn, the character, is a fun-loving, trouble-making youth, thus the allusion is quite fitting for a song by a raucous group like the Red Hot Chili Peppers.
