Huckleberry Finn is an excellent example of Mark Twain's use of oral tradition in his writing. This is demonstrated in the extensive use of storytelling that occurs between Huck and Jim in their travels, as well as among the other characters in the text, such as the king and the duke. While orality is apparent in other works by Mark Twain, Huck Finn is perhaps the most obvious example.
