Teaching notes on Huckleberry Finn: Setting and character 1-8

Putting together my ideas for next term and the need to link Finn with Gatsby, within the context of American Literature 1880-1940.

In this ppt I look at Setting and character in the opening section of the novel and find key ideas for my students to develop and follow.

I look at the contrasting settings of The Widow’s House and Pap’s cabin and at the establishment of character in the opeing section of the novel.
