Transcript of Huckleberry Finn Scrapbook 2

Scrapbook of Huckleberry Finn By: Chris Boyce Huckleberry Finn Duke and the Dauphin Jim Pap Grangerfords & Shephardsons Phelps Widow Douglas and Miss Watson Tom Sawyer "The Widow Douglas she took me for her son, and allowed she would sivilize me..." (Twain 1). "Her sister, Miss Watson, a tolerable slim old maid, had just come to live with her, and took a set at me now with a spelling book" (Twain 2). Judge Thatcher "Directly I could just barely hear a 'me-yow!' 'me-yow!' down there. ...I slipped down to the ground snd crawled among the trees, and, sure enough, there was Tom Sawyer waiting fo me" (Twain 4). "Miss Watson's big nigger, named Jim, was setting in the kitchen door; we coiuld see him pretty clear, because there was a light behind him" (Twain 4). "I was at Judge Thatcher's as quick as I could get there. He said, 'Why, my boy you are all out of breath. Did you come for you interest?'" (Twain 16). "You don't know about me with reading the book The Adventures or Tom Sawyer, but that ain't no matter. (Huck Finn 1)" "When I lit my candle and went up to my room that night there sat pap-hsi own self! ...I used to be scared of him all the time, he tanned me so much. I recon I was scared now, to; but in a minute I see I was mistaken-that is, after the first jolt, as you may say, when my breath sort of hitched, he being so unexpected; but right away after I see I warn't scared him worth bothring about"(Twain 18). "...I just felt the way any other boy would 'a' felt when I seen that wreck laying there so mournful and lonesome in the middle of a river. I wanted to get aboard of her and slink around a little and see what there was there" (Twain 66). "So he watched out for me one day in the spring, and catched me, and took me up the river bout three mile in a skiff, and crossed over to the Illinois shore where it was woody and there warn't no houses but an old log hut in a place where the timber was so thick you couldnt find it if you didn't know where it was" (Twain 23). "Before he was t'other side of the river I as out of my hole; him and his raft was just a speck on the water away off yonder" (Twain 32).
"I can stop anywhere I want to. Jackson's Island is good enough for me;..."(Twain 34).
"I'm a-going to find out who it is that's here on the island with me; I'll find it out or bust. ...and it was Miss Watson's Jim" (Twain 41). "Colonel Grangerford was a gentleman, you see. He was a gentleman all over and so was his family" (Twain 104). "Pretty soon a splendid young man came galloping down the road, setting the horse easy and looking like a soldier. He had his gun across him pommel. I had seen him before. It was young Harney Shepherdson" (Twain 106). "One of these fellows was about seventy or upwards, and had a bald head and very grey whiskers. He had an old battered-up slouch hat on, and a greasy blue wollen shirt, tops, and home-knit gallusses-no he only had one..." (Twain 120). "The other fellow was about thirty, and dressed about as ornery. After breakfast we all laid off and talked, and the first thing that come out was that these chaps didnt know one another" (Twain 120). "Phelps was one of these little one-horse cotton plantations, and they all look alike" (Twain 218) Huck goes to Judge Thatcher to give his money to Thatcher, so that his drunken dad will not take it all. This shows that Huck knows when to prepare for adversity, and he knows how to deal with it. Motif: Self-Reliance Defining Moment: Kidnapping and Ecape Pap kidnaps Huck over him continuing to attend school even despite Pap's wishes to keep him from learning more than him. Pap locks Huck in a cabin and leaves him there while he goes out. Huck escapes and fakes his own death to ensure his freedom. Defining Moment: Finding Jim Huck finds Jim on Jackson's Island. Jim professes to running away. Slaves were considered property and heping a run away slave was considered theft. Tom could have turned Jim in at any point during the story, but he didn't. Huck views Jim as a friend rather than a piece of property and towards the end an equal. Defining Moments: Pap Finds Huck Motif: Mischeviousness Huck and Tom were sneaking out to make a band of robbers with the other boys from town. They sneak out in Chapter 2 and Huck sneaks aboard the Walter Scott in Chapter 13. Works Cited

Widow Douglas. Digital image. N.p., n.d. Web. <http://static.enotes.com/images/enotes/9015/HF1.JPG>. Huck finds Pap's boot heel in the snow one day and freaks out. He heads over to Judge Thatcher and gives the judge all of his money. Huck knows that if Pap gets the six thousand dollars he will end up drinking the money away. Pap ends up harrassing Judge Thatcher until he kidnaps Huck and takes him away to his cabin on the border of Illinois. Huck is worried about his father's wellbeing even despite his blatant disreguard for Pap before and after Huck's kidnapping. Motif: Blissful Ignorance Huck finds himself in a family feud after his raft gets destroyed by a steamboat one night. Huck has no idea what a feud is or why people are even in the feud in the first place. To Huck it doesn't seem to make sense, but he just accepts it and tries to make the best of it. Defining Moment: Trust Huck meets the Duke and the Dauphin after he and Jim miss their route to Cairo. Huck decides to trust the two and they turn out to be con artists. Huck realizes this and before he can do anything about it. Jim is sold to the Phelps family for forty dollars. Huck is a very trusting person. He believes that whatever comes out of someones mouth should be meant and that promises should be kept. True he has lied about Jim and what Jim was doing with him, but that is because he made a pormise to Jim and wont go back on that promise. Map Huck's tavels down the Mississippi Defining Moments: Tom's Plan When Jim gets sold into the Phelp's farm, Huck doesn't quite know what to do. He knows that if he doesn't save Jim then Jim will be stuck there until the end of his natural life. Tom Sawyer is reintroduced and devises an incredibley cruel plan to save Jim. Huck trusts Tom and follows Tom's lead. Huck is a natural born follower. He can lead if he needs to but finds it easier to follow someone else's lead. Objects of Significance: Money Huck and Tom found a large sum of money in a cave. They split the money evenly and ended up with six thousand dollars each. It took a while, but Pap found out about the money and came looking for it. Huck left the money with Judge Thatcher; it would be safer with him rather than Huck. Objects of Significance: Cabin The cabin that Huck is taken to is in the middle of nowhere. It is hidden so well that if you didnt know where it was then you would not find it. The cabin was Huck's prison and he needed to escape.
