The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn help with homework: Does anything seem distinctively “American” about this book?

  1. Does anything seem distinctively “American” about this book? (Besides the slavery issue, of course.) Does it seem to draw from or help create any mythology about American individualism that you might be familiar with from contemporary debates?
  2. What’s up with all the weird gender business, like Huck dressing up as a girl, and women being associated with “civilization” and men being associated with, well, being drunken, vengeful murderer?
