This article focuses on an American classic novel dealing with concepts of childhood and upbringing. We shall deal with an up-and-coming teenager, a character who’s dealt with every problem life threw at him, and, in the end, considering he had neither the benefits of nature nor the ones of nurture, managed to become an adapted individual. Quite more so, if we consider the fact that he had, by the end of the book, surpassed all levels of human decency, Huck Fin, is a child who ends up being more civilized than the society in which he lived.
