Hemingway had once said The Adventure of Huckleberry Finn was the best novel in the history of American literature at that time.I admire him since he had won the Nobel Price ,a symbol of kind of authority.From the Internet,I also learned that the story of Huck Fin is so popular in U.S. that several movies about it had been released.It is only natural for me to hold high expectation towards the book. When reading the novel, i was astounded by Huck's free will and his typical character.He hates to "sivilized"by the conventional morality and would rather live in the wild to explore the truth of the nature. In my real life,most of us are obedient in the presence of social norm.The community is the place where we were brought up and where we will flourish or go down.It taught us to know the underlining rules in the daily life when sophistication is high-praised.Afraid of being alienated,we try to assimilate ourselves to adjust to the environment.In the process of seeking respect and acknowledgement,we gradually lost our individuality and become interdependent.The collectivistic culture does have great influence in our life.Sometimes it is just too "harmonious" that everything turns to be unnaturally unified.Our country is not developed in many senses,in order to get better control over the mass,the impressive huge population,our education had once become the industry to produce standardized products.Critical thinking was ignored and denied,for disobedience might result in disorder.How lucky for today's youngsters,to breathe the free air to the heart's content!We can gain information from various channels,and to voice ourselves freely,at least in the Internet. Our hero,Huck,who symbolizes the character of the rising emigrants on the new continent,is daring and unconventional,keeping pursuing freedom and individuality.His sympathy for the slave,Jim,finally overcomes previous prejudice.And this shows a new trend of thought,a universal equality recommended by the new nation.Under the premise of not hurting anyone,he is in pursuit of his freedom to the greatest extent.How I envy his broad mind and unrestrainedness! The very individualistic oriented culture,which makes U.S. such a prospers enterprise country,is distinctively revealed.The people there love challenging tasks and welcome the competitive industrial life.It is estimated that on average Americans change their jobs every four years,yet in China many people prefer relatively steady occupation.(A typical one is civil servants.These days many people jump at the entering for the exams of national public servant).Clearly, it is our national character,to look for a cautious or moderate way in behaviour and decision.However,the age is changing rapidly,the new generation has become more bold and flexible.And i am also curious about what our county will grow to be. Besides,the language of the book is also "unsilvilized",it is composed with the dialect among blacks in the southern states.As an authentic presentation of the life of southerners,the wording is coherent with the style of Huck:fresh and unspoiled. The theme of freedom also can be perceived from the depiction of Jim.Nobody is born to be slave or inferior,if he behaves uncivilly,that is because society fail to cultivate him.Today Barack Obama has conquered the whole nation with his wisdom and charm.And he is the vivid illustration of racial equality in U.S. This an age for freedom,and our Mark Twain had sensitively caught the essence of the the stream of times in advance.That is where his greatness lies.
