    How Black Characters Speak in Mark Twain’s The Adventures Of Huckleberry Finn, and How This Gets Translated

    The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain has attracted controversy for decades over its depictions of African-Americans. In this talk Dr B.J. Epstein, lecturer in literature and public engagement at the University of East Anglia, delves into the issue and questions how much of black characters’ cultures, dialects, and beliefs have been lost in translation. The issue is whether the black characters are depicted as different or as deficient, and what this says about society’s views of black people.
