The present paper consists of some orienting reflections of the archetypal American quest for identity in Mark Twain’s The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. The novel tends to be a matter of its language overcoming problems despite the fact that it is considered the archetypal American tradition. It could also face up to most problematic cases because of its complicated history and controversial diction. It seeks a great deal of a new social identity of America, thus it is so important for understanding the ambiguous relationship as well as its understatements among fictional personas. It weaves and understate a complicated plot, diction and theme. The main goal of the novel is particularly interesting for constructing identity. It is not an attempt to force racial identity because of a regardless of skin colour. The fact that this novel may read is a damning indictment of racial identity of America. It is stunning, and for a long time engrossing all valuable charisma
