Chapter 32 and 33 In chapter 34, Huck and Tom decide to make their own plans to try and rescue Jim from Uncle Silas, and whichever plan is better is the one they'll execute. After they've each come up with a plan, Tom convinces Huck to go with his plan because Huck's plan is too simple. Then, they both go see Jim's keeper to ask if they can talk to Jim. When Jim sees Huck and Tom, he cries out in happiness. When his keeper asks Jim why he cried out, Jim says he didn't and that it was the witches. For the couple of minutes Jim's keeper leaves, Huck and Tom inform Jim of their plan to free him. Tom and Huck find out that Uncle Silas doesn't have Jim guarded very well which disappoints Tom. For that reason, Tom believes they should create every obstacle possible in an effort to make things more fun while they rescue Jim. Tom even thinks about cutting off Jim's leg, but Huck shuts down that idea, and after a minute Tom agrees they shouldn't got that far. Tom and Huck argue about what is stealing and what is borrowing, and in the end, Huck has to pay the prisoners a dime for it. Summary of Chapter 36 "No; the way all the best authority does, is to saw the bed-leg in two, and leave it just so, and swallow the sawdust, so it can't be found, and put some dirt and grease around the sawed place so the very keenest seneskal can't see no sign of its being sawed, and thinks the bed-leg is perfectly sound." (Twain 181) Study Question 77 Why does Huck allow Tom to lead in the plot escape? Huck allows Tom to lead in the plot escape because Tom's plan is "worth fifteen of mine." Huck also agrees to Tom's plan because it may get all three of them killed which adds to the excitement. In this chapter, Tom and Huck quickly realize that they cannot dig with knives, so they switch to pick-axes. When they reach Jim, he is relieved to see them and he tells the boys about how he is being treated well. Later, Tom devises a plan to bake a rope-ladder into a witch pie that he will give to Jim "'Well, then, what we going to do, Tom?'
'I'll tell you. It ain't right, and it ain't moral, and I wouldn't like it to get out-but there ain't only just the one way; we got to dig him out with the picks, and let on it's case-knives.'
'Now you're talking!"' (Twain 223) Motifs/Satire Superstitions and Folk Beliefs- "Well, I tell you what I think. What makes them come here just at this runaway nigger's breakfast-time? It's because they're hungry; that's the reason. You make them a witch pie; that's the thing for you to do."

A white woman comes out side and beckons Huck, thinking that he is Tom Sawyer, her nephew. After asking Huck what took him so long to get there, in which he replied that a cylinder head on the steamboat broke, Sally greets her husbands return home. This arrival of Uncle Silas reveals to Huck that they are referring to him as Tom Sawyer. After hearing a steamboat near the river, Huck hurries off to the docks to intercept Tom in case he comes. *Superstitions *Lies & Cons Literary Devices in Chapters 34 & 35 Chapter 35 *Irony
*Anaphora Summaries of Chapters 30 and 31 Chapter 30 Chapter 31 This chapter starts off with the dauphin being mad at Huck at nearly killing him. He is mad because he thought it was Huck's idea about the stolen gold after it was found. The duke stops the king from nearly strangling Huck. The duke and dauphin have an argument over believing that the other hid the gold in the coffin to retrieve it later, without the other knowing. After a while, they get tired and go to sleep at the end of the chapter. The four men take a raft downstream. The con men get into a fight at a tavern, and Huck takes the chance to escape. Over at the raft, Jim has disappeared. A boy explains to Huck that a man recognized Jim as a runaway from a handbill that offered $200 for Jim’s capture in New Orleans. Based on the boy’s description, Huck realizes that it was the dauphin himself who captured and quickly sold Jim. Huck decides to write to Tom Sawyer to tell Miss Watson where Jim is. Huck thinks of the sin for helping a slave and starts to pray, but then thinks of the times he has spent with Jim as friends. He decides that he will go to hell and he goes to get Jim out of slavery. Huck goes to see Silas Phelps. The duke initially slips and reveals where Jim really is (on the Phelps farm) but then changes his story and says he sold Jim to a man forty miles away. The duke encourages Huck to head out on the three-day, forty-mile trip. *Hyperbole *Racism & Slavery *Gullibility *Fascination for Ceremony and Somber Things Chapter 34 situational irony hyperbole metaphor
Huck concluded, from the events of the King and the Duke being tarred and feathered, that a conscience is useless because it makes you feel bad no matter what you do. Tom easily accepts to help free Jim, which is shocking to Huck. When they get back to Aunt Sally's house, Tom pretends to be William Thompson from Ohio. During a thorough dinner, Tom and Huck find out that "the runaway" told Silas and Sally that the show in town was a con. When night falls, Huck and Tom sneak outside and walk down a road. After a short while, they spot the duke and the dauphin on a rail, covered head to toe with tar and feathers. Huck shows sadness towards the two con men, and even blames himself for their peril. Study Question 71 What is the significance of the title,
"I Have a New Name"? In chapter 32, Huck arrives at Aunt Sally's house, in which she believes him to be Tom Sawyer, her nephew. The title represents the comedy that Huck finds in having the role of his best friend, Tom. Study Question 76 What is Huck's reaction to the punishment of the King and Duke? In chapter 33, Huck and Tom can be found walking down the road after dinner. As it happens, the King and the Duke were recently in town performing one of their cons. Now, Huck and Tom watch a mob running the King and the Duke out of town on a rail, completely tarred and feathered. At this point in time, Huck's mad thoughts towards the con men fade away, and are replaced with grief and blame for what is happening to them. As he watches Huck says "Human beings can be awful cruel to one another." Motifs and Themes of
