I found an interesting website today.  Apparently, PBS did a series on controversial novels in 2000 and the first program was called Born to Trouble: Adventures of Huck Finn.  There is a lot of historical information about how the novel has been received … and censored.  It also delves into Twain’s views on slavery.  The information opens off of this page:  http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/cultureshock/beyond/huck.html .  Hope you like it!
