Relation to literature, American Realism
Mark Twain is a very famous writer in American History. He wrote the best seller HuckleBerry Finn. In the book, the character is a fictional person but is based on Mark's life. He was one of the first american writers to write this way.
The main premise behind Huckleberry Finn is the young boy's belief in the right thing to do though most believed that it was wrong. Four hundred manuscript pages of Huckleberry Finn were written in mid-1876, right after the publication of Tom Sawyer.
