Transcript of 1 h hart huck finn character analsis
Huck also knew how to deal with people. Not many have the same amount of patience as he. Two examples are his patience with the duke and the king, and his patience with Tom.
Huck said "If I never learnt nothing else out of pap, I learnt that the best way to get along with his kind of people is to let them have their own way" (Twain 128).
Huck new that Tom was going to meddle with his plan to rescue Jim, yet he still trusted him to do so. "I knowed [the plan] wouldn't stay the way it was. I knowed [Tom] would be changing it around, every which way, as we went along, and heaving in new bullinesses wherever he got a chance" (Twain 235).

Huckleberry Finn Character Analysis
While Huck may not understand everything right away, he wants to understand
everything. For example, when Tom brought up genies in lamps, he "thought all this over for two or three days" before testing things out himself (Twain 14).
Huck was very kind towards Jim throughout the story. They ended up having a familial bond; Jim seems to love Huck as a son. An example many people discussed in Moodle is Jim's father-like love for Huck expressed in Chapter XXIII.
Huck protected Jim on more than one occasion. In Chapter XXXI, he lied and said there was smallpox on his raft. Jim was very thankful. "and he was so grateful, and said I was the best friend old Jim ever had in the world, and the only one he’s got now" (Twain 217). Huck did what he felt was right: he was showing kindness and compassion without even realizing it.
Huckleberry Finn loved nature. He felt most at home on Jackson's Island, and he loved living off of the Mississippi River. He and Jim even said "there warn't no home like a raft" (Twain 119). Huck's true home was in the midst of nature; moreover, it was a place where he could be himself without anyone judging him. He got a taste of two completely different lifestyles: high class and social outcast. In nature, he didn't worry about what people would think.
Another reason I say Huck is an "outdoors-man is because he listens to and appreciates nature. In the very first chapter, he says "the wind was trying to whisper something to me, and I couldn’t make out what it was, and so it made the cold shivers run over me" (Twain 2). Someone like Tom--a book worm-- would not have ever said anything like this since it is not written about in popular books.
