Satirical Caricatures Caricatures are exaggerations of an issue/person/place, etc. You are to draw a picture that depicts Twain’s feelings about the issue assigned to your group. Your picture should display both your understanding of the events in the book and your understanding of the use of satire. Use the book to help you with the specifics. (It should be evident that your picture comes from The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn.) Under your picture, write a one paragraph summary of what Twain is satirizing.
Satirical Caricatures - Examples Come with me, Robot Jim. I will get you away from Ms. Watson! /: stn> In an effort to make The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn a novel that is politically correct, “Nigger Jim” has been replaced with “Robot Jim.” This cartoon uses ridicule to show that the censorship of the “offensive” aspects of the novel in order to alleviate public outcry actually dehumanizes Jim’s character and changes the entire meaning of the book.
