Episode description: Attacked when published for its "low morals," Mark Twain's classic novel The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn has come under fire more recently for its 19th-century racist language. Now regarded as a masterpiece, Manet's painting Olympia created a scandal at the 1865 Paris exhibit because it flouted the accepted ideas of beauty and propriety in art. [cc]
