In Mark Twain's Huckleberry Finn, the idea of children seeing things more clearly in their so-called ignorance than adults do with their so-called wisdom, is conveyed clearly throughout the text .With the use of unconscious irony, the vernacular of Southern America and interior monologue, Twain showcases the fallacies in assuming that a dichotomy should exist between adults and children in terms how they deal with their environments.

Regardless of how children are looked at, whether they're innocent angels or cruel unethical brats or anywhere in between, the distribution with regards to adults is similar. In the novel, Huck is portrayed as a young soul, clearly coming from the lowest levels of white society. This means that Huck's distance from mainstream society makes him not easily convinced with doubts and reservations of the world around him and the ideas passed onto him. Twain's use of unconscious irony creates a tone of humour which in turn makes the reader feel a sense of comfort.

When you got to the table you couldn't go right to eating, but you had to wait for the widow to tuck down her head and grumble a little over the victuals, though there warn't really anything the matter with them,--that is, nothing only everything was cooked by itself. In a barrel of odds and ends it is different; things get mixed up, and the juice kind of swaps around, and the things go better.
Because Huck is a child, the world seems new to him. Everything he encounters is an occasion for thought. Huck's sense of worship and religion is clouded by the fact that he doesn't believe in the rituals and statements taught to him by the Widow. The irony about Huck’s reaction to Miss Watson warning him to behave or face the prospect of going to hell is made clear when even after the depiction of hell is meant to be scary, he finds it more interesting than anything else.
By using the vernacular of Southern America, Twain uses the life-like quality to capture the way Huck talks...
