Summary of The Book:
The Widow Douglas she took me for her son, and allowed she would civilize me; but it was rough living in the house all the time, considering how dismal regular and decent the widow was in all her ways; and so when I couldn't stand it no longer I lit out. I got into my old rags and my sugar-hogshead again, and was free and satisfied. (1.2)
The quote explains how Huck wants to belong in the society and doesn't want to not disappoint Miss Watson. He can't help but feel how a civilized life isn't one for him. Although he does his best to adapt he feels as though a part of him is missing.
The stars were shining, and the leaves rustled in the woods ever so mournful; and I heard an owl, away off, who-whooing about somebody that was dead, and a whippowill and a dog crying about somebody that was going to die; and 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. (1.8)
In this quote you see how Huck feels and understands the part of the world that remains untouched by humanity. He thrives off the way the air blows or the sounds that surround him. He understands nature, feeling like its his home.
Nature in the real world
" We said there warn't no home like a raft, after all. Other places do seem so cramped up and smothery, but a raft don't. You feel mighty free and easy and comfortable on a raft." Pg.155
In this quote you see how nature calls to Huck. He was born to be free and lively. Huck isn't a civilized boy, he has a mind of his own. Showing how living alone, in nature is where he belongs.
"Next we slid into the river and had a swim, so as to freshen up and cool off; then we set down on the sandy bottom where the water wa about knee-deep, and watched the daylight come. Not a sound anywheres - perfectly still- just like the whole world was asleep, only sometimes the bullfrogs a-clattering, mabye." Pg. 156
You can feel Huck's passion when he is describing his experience. This is something he would never see in a city or plantation. The calms of the world aren't there when humanity corrupts the beauty. Huck wants to saver the beauty that he loves and cling to it showing he doesn't belong in a society.
As you can see, Civilization can turn a society into selfish, cowardice, arrogant human beings, taking away the beauties of this world. In this novel Huck's adventures find these beauties of nature and mankind. While as time goes on civilization keeps adapting. Although us, as people, have been improving how we treat the planet we still take much advantage of it to this day. In some ways our society will always be the way it is in the novel which shows humanity. All in all, you find that nature is a part of life that gives us so much good, still doesn't receives as much appreciation as the world deserves.
