Question:

How does Huckleberry Finn fit the mold of a character in a picaresque novel?

Inactive
Josh E.
Answer:

Huck Finn epitomizes the 'picaro'; his rough behavior and character traits are redeemed by his good-natured attitudes towards the less fortunate, especially Jim. Additionally, Huck routinely escapes from authority figures on his journey down the Mississippi River.

Question:

How did 'White Man's Burden' contribute to the colonization of Africa in the late nineteenth century?

Inactive

Answer:

Rudyard Kipling's poem, "The White Man's Burden", presents the common view among many Europeans during the last years of the 1800s that it was the duty, or burden, of White people to colonize and modernize the 'savages' around the world. Africa, therefore, became one theatre for this idea to work itself out, as Europeans sought the treasures found in the great continent, while seeing their role as a benevolent one also.
