The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn

Use evidence to explain how Twain characterizes the Arkansas townspeople. What is the author’s purpose in portraying them as he does? How is the success of the duke’s and king’s second advertised play Twain’s final jab at the town?

The townspeople seem simple minded and gullable. They operate on a mob mentality and can't really think critically or independently.
