Grangerfords' devoted Christianity while repeatedly sinning
Emmaline's passion for death
Honor within the Grangerford household
The senseless, pointless killing of young people for corrupted view of family honor
Even Huck, who is usually not shaken by many things, is horrified and disgusted by this
"O no. Then list with tearful eye,
Whilst I his fate do tell.
His soul did from this cold world fly
By falling down a well"
"If Emmaline Grangerford could make poetry like that before fourteen, there ain't no telling what she could 'a' done by and by."
"...we all went to church about three mile, everybody a-horseback. The men took their guns along [...] preaching- all about brotherly love."
"It made me so sick I most fell out of the tree. I ain't going to tell all that happened- it would make me sick again if I was to do that."
"What did he do to you?"- Huck
"Him? Well he never done nothing to me."-Buck
"Well, then, what did you want to kill him for?"
"Why, nothing- only it's on account of the feud."
"Col. Grangerford was a gentleman, you see. He was a gentleman all over; and so was his family. He was well born, and the saying is, and that's worth as much in a man as a horse."
How do the Grangerfords and Sheperdsons exhibit religious hypocrisy?
How do the fueds and frontier justice impact Huck's growing sense of right and wrong?
What do the slaves know about the underground railroad and ways to run away to elude capture?
