Transcript of The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn Chapters 7-12

Satire


"By and by she come along, and she drifted in so close that they could 'a' run out a plank and walked ashore. Most everybody was on the boat. Pap, and Judge Thatcher, and Bessie Thatcher, and Joe Harper, and Tom Sawyer, and his old Aunt Polly, and Sid and Mary, and plenty more."(Ch. 8 pg. 34) When Huck is with his father not many people are as
concerned
. But, when everyone finds out that Huck "
died
", they all help look for him in concern. They do not know what their
missing

until it's
gone
.
"No, I didn't lose it all. I on'y los' 'bout nine of it. I sole de hide en taller for a dollar en ten cents." (Ch. 8 pg. 41) This is satire because he was not smart enough to

save

the
money

on something that would be

useful

for them.
What we learned
We learned that Huck and Jim have many
differences
, but one thing that they have in common is freedom. Huck doesn't want to be under his father's wing and Jim doesn't want to get sold. What begins to build throughout chapters 7-12 is
friendship
. "Well, I warn't long making him understand I warn't dead. I was ever so glad to see Jim. I warn't lonesome now. I told him I warn't afraid of him telling the people where I was. I talked along, but he only set there and looked at me; never said nothing." (Ch.8 pg.37) This quote talks about Huck not feeling
lonely
with Jim's
company
.
Characters
Huck is running away from Widow Douglas and Pap because he wants
freedom
.
Jim is running away from Miss Watson because she was going to
sell
him for eight hundred dollars.
Pap, Miss Watson, Aunt Polly, Bessie Thatcher, Judge Thatcher, Widow Douglas, Joe Harper, Tom Sawyer and many more are on the ferry boat together
searching
for Huck's
body
.

Symbols
The
raft
is one of the symbols for chapters 7 through 12 because it represents the
friendship
that develops between Huck and Jim. (Ch.12 pg. 58)
Another symbol is the
island
because its represents the
uncertain future
for Huck and Jim when they hear cannons being launched into the air, they are in
fear
of being
found
.

(Ch.8 pgs. 33-34)

The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn Chapters 7-12
Themes
Racism is one of the themes in chapters 7 through 12 because Huck makes Jim lay down in the canoe and

covers

him up with a quilt for nobody to
notice

him. (Ch.9 pg. 46)
Reality vs. Pretense is also one of the themes because Jim thinks that the
dead body

is Pap, when in

reality
the dead body is a

different

person. (Ch.9 pg. 45)
Humor
Humorous
aside: "I went to the cavern to get some, and found a rattlesnake in there. I killed him, and curled him up on the foot of Jim's blanket,...."(Ch.10 pg.47) Huck was showing that he just wanted to
prank
Jim.
Dramatic
Irony
: "His foot swelled up pretty big, and so did his leg; but by and by the drunk begun to come, and so I judged he was all right; but I'd druther been bit with a snake than pap's whisky." (Ch.10 pg. 48) Huck is demonstrating how
little
he cares for his Pap by saying he would rather get
bitten
by a snake than Pap
abusing
him while he was drunk.
