Adventures Of Huckleberry Finn King And The Duke
842 wordsIt was easier to recognize the traits that Twain was contemptuous of, since the entire book was supposed to satirize society. But there were certain traits that Twain admired, too.

The Webster's New Collegiate defines a scientist as: One learned in science or Natural science; also, known as a scientific investigator.
