A satire first and foremost, experienced readers tend to find it even more entertaining, and knowing a good deal of history [[GeniusBonus doesn't hurt either]]. ''Huck Finn'' was revolutionary at the time for including a black slave as a main character. In doing so, though, it uses the words that were normal at the time, including "nigger" as a common description -- which of course isn't common anymore. The novels remains widely considered to be a pillar of American literature.

* ShamingTheMob: Colonel Sherburn calmly disperses an angry Lynch Mob with an epic TheReasonYouSuckSpeech.

* ShamingTheMob: Colonel Sherburn calmly disperses an angry Lynch Mob with an epic TheReasonYouSuckSpeech.TheReasonYouSuckSpeech, telling them (as it turns out, correctly) that they are all [[DirtyCoward too cowardly]] to lynch him. However, this is made ambiguous by the fact that Sherburn definitely does not have the moral high ground; he had just shot and killed a man in cold blood in the middle of the street in broad daylight. Twain was not a fan of the old Southern code of justice.
