I have to finish the final draft of my essay on Huck Finn, and I have some good ideas and I know what I want to say, but I need some ideas on the creativity part of it. I can't exactly think of an interesting grabber or some more creative things. Here is the rough draft introduction that I came up with:
"Believing that the civilized man is an ideal creature isn't a difficult task. The civilized man is defined as being intelligent and responsible. He is neither gullible nor filled with excessive pride, and he will get along with other civilized people. Of course living in civilized society is the best way to live, but some don't agree. Mark Twain's "The adventures of Huckleberry Finn" suggests that the civilized man is not only gullible, but selfish and filled with pride as well.
Can someone help me out? I don't think an interesting quote would work, and I can't think of a good metaphor either. HELP ME!
There maybe something (an idea or a quotation) from Jean Jacques Rousseau that may be a good lead-in to use:
Thank you so much!
