The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn

is this a good thesis statement for an essay on The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn?

Twain uses characterization to portray Huck as an amazingly strong-willed character who is in touch with a personal sense of morality that enables him to disregard society's values.

Hey, this is really good. As long as Huck is the major person that you are characterizing this will be great. Make sure you know your major points which support your thesis statement. I would mention them in your intro. and then deal with each separately in the body of your paper. In your body remember to state-explain -quote. So, if Huck is accepting of blacks, you will explain the significance of this, then find and quote evidence from the text.

Hi. How about, "Twain's characterization of Huck shows an amazingly strong-willed young man, whose personal sense of morality overrides society's closed-minded bigotry and focuses, instead, on his own integrity and values." Saying that "characterization" portrays a character is a little redundant. Good luck.

I agree 100% with Aslan. Have strong opinions, but make sure to back them up with evidence. And make sure to cite all sources. Happy writing! :)

Is this a good thesis statement ?

Racial inequality has affected Huck and Jim’s friendship; throughout the novel, their relationship evolves into a father-son dynamic.
