Huck, Emma & Asher Lev/Misfits

Uploaded by :

A 6 page essay that contrasts and compares three novels. Mark Twain's Huckleberry Finn, Jane Austen's Emma and Chaim Potok's My Name is Asher Lev are novels that each address the trials and tribulations of young protagonists as they come of age and enter the adult world. In each case, the author utilizes the literary devices setting, structure, and characterization in order to dramatize how each protagonist does or does not fit into the context of their social world. Huck, Emma and Asher are each, to a certain extent, a misfit in that world and their stories dramatize aspects of their era, their society and the individual character of each protagonist in the way that they adapt to their specific society.
