Mark Twain also reveals the relationship between Huck and his abusive father.
Readers can see the fear and the
change Pap installs in Huck’s life. His father takes Huck to the cabin that he built, where no one can find it, and kidnaps Huck. Huck's father is a drunk, so he is always trying to use and he hurts Huck. Huck is never allowed to leave the cabin because his father locks it up and won’t let him leave. So, one day Huck gets a clever idea and cuts a hole in the wall and covers it up with a blanket. He then sneaks out and kills a wild pig to make it look like someone robbed the house and killed Huck. He then floats up the river to Jackson Island where he hides out. Huck Finn

Others on the island Conscience vs. Laws Huck has an internal battle between turning Jim in as a runaway slave or befriending him and joining forces. His loneliness wants Jim as a friend, but he also feels bad that this affects Miss Watson. Throughout the episodes Huck is reminded that what they are doing is illegal. Internal Old Life Vs. New Life Huck is faced with the decision to leave the society he knows for a new life, or being with his father and the people he cares about. Internal Originally Huck is caring only about himself and realizes that being on his own is hard because of the feeling of loneliness.
He changes throughout this episode when he makes the decision to listen to his heart, instead of society, concerning Jim.
Also, the incident concerning the rattlesnake and Jim shows Huck that his actions do affect others and he feels bad about what he did. 1) Should a person follow what
they feel or how society will
feel about their actions?
2) How much can you stretch
the truth to cover a secret? In the beginning of this episode, Huck is trying to embrace Pap the best way he can and trying just to endure his father’s manipulation. Huck enjoys not having to live up to the standards of society.
He makes the decision that he rather be dead to everyone in the town than have to cooperate with his abusive father anymore. This signals the independence that will continue to grow through the chapters. 1)How much can one endure till they change the situation?
2)Is racism logical? Stormy Weather
Ch. 12-15 "It was fifteen minutes before I could work myself up to go and humble myself to a nigger--but I done it, and I warn't ever sorry for it afterwards, neither." Pg. 89 Characters Setting Conflict What Huck Learns
and How He Changes Key Questions: Summary Huck and Jim have been floating down the Mississippi river in their raft. Huck and Jim come across a wrecked ship that Huck insists on going in inside. Once they get on board they overhear two men discussing the fate of a third man they tied up. The raft floated away while they were aboard, but Jim steals the men’s Skiff and supplies and he and Huck use that until they find the raft. After they find their raft again Huck goes ashore and finds a ferry watchman to try to save the robbers because he feels guilty for leaving them, but they find the wreck floating down the river and it has sunk further. Huck realizes that they have probably drowned. Jim is trying to reach Cairo but they can not see anything through the fog so they land on shore, but the raft floats aboard with Jim is still on it so Huck gets in the canoe to catch him. The next morning, Huck finds the raft with
Jim asleep on board and he decides to play a trick on Jim, saying that loosing each other was a dream,
but Jim realizes it was a trick and gets
mad at Huck. Huck Finn
Jake Packyard Intellect Vs. Heart In these chapters Huck can view the situations from a simple intellectual standpoint or from an emotional aspect of thinking about others. For example: They stole the boat and it’s goods because they needed it and the criminals abroad suffered. On the other hand though, he felt bad and signaled the watchman. This same idea of emotion vs. intellect can be applied to his joke on Jim. Internal Jim and Huck set off together on the river and Huck realizes that they are more alike then he originally thought.
When Huck first boards the Walter Scott, he does it solely for his personal enjoyment. After the events play out, he understands that he cost people their lives and should have avoided the situation in general. He relates more to his conscience in this situation when he feels bad about what happened to the criminals, even if they deserved it.
There is a break through in the relationship between Huck and Jim in this episode. The joke Huck plays on Jim for his entertainment deeply hurts his best friend and Huck goes against the normalcy of society when he apologizes to a slave and views him as a person.
He finally understands that his
entertainment is not worth the
pain he brings other people. 1) Is personal enjoyment at the expense of others right or wrong?
2) How important is the role of a friend on the journey of life? Splinters
Ch. 16-18 "I was powerful glad to get away from the feuds, and so was Jim to get away from the swamp. 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. 1119 Summary Characters Setting Conflict What Huck Learns
and How He Changes Key Questions: Jim is excited about becoming a free man, but Huck
is starting to question helping to free a slave. Huck runs
into townspeople searching for runaway slaves and he has
to choose to cover for Jim or to let them capture him. He decides to cover for Jim and says that the man on board has smallpox, so the men give him money if he promises not to land anywhere near their town. Huck and Jim realize that they passed Cairo and make a plan to go up the river, but their plan is ruined and a ship crashes into their raft making them jump overboard and go to the shore. Huck and Jim are separated again due to the crash and, but Huck finds a family called the Grangerfords. The family takes him in and Huck befriends their son Buck. He learns that the family is in a feud with the Sheperdons. While delivering a note for the Grangerfords, a
slave takes Huck to Jim and the raft Jim has now
fixed. The next day the families realize that a
Grangerford (Miss Sophia) has eloped with Harvey
Sheperdson and the feud is at full force. After
seeing the men shoot and kill each
other Huck and Jim go back to the
river. Huck Finn

(Mr. Parker and John)
Miss Sophia Life on the River Vs. Life on the Shore A steamboat smashes the raft that Huck and Jim have been living on. They are separated and Huck is forced to go back to the land and he becomes part of the Grangerfords’ family. He observes the feud and when he sees two people disregard it and the reactions of both families’, he realizes that life on the shore is complicated and riddled with problems compared to his life on the raft, which is simple and freeing. External Huck experiences his first encounter with slave catchers and is forced to choose between exposing Jim as a runaway slave or covering for him. He chooses not to tell, even though he knows he can be jailed for his actions.
When Huck first meets the Grangerford’s he does not understand the feud. But as he sees the affects of it on both families, he decides he would rather be with Jim and the river away from the conflicts in society. 1) How do you decide when to look out for yourself and when to put yourself on the line to help another person?
2) Do people attend church to further their spiritual life or just to go along with the standards of society? The Mourners' Bench
Ch. 19-20 "If I never learnt nothing else out of pap, I learnt that the best way to get along with his kind of people is to let them have their own way." Pg. 128 Summary Characters Setting Conflict What Huck Learns
and How He Changes Key Questions: While searching for berries, Huck comes upon two men and helps them escape. The men join Huck and Jim aboard the raft and tell them that they are a King and a Duke, but Huck realizes that they are both frauds. They form a partnership and stop at a small town that appears abandoned because everyone is a camp. The King goes to a meeting with Huck and tells them a story, which he said he repented and needed money so they give him eighty-seven dollars. The duke makes flyers that say Jim is a runaway slave from New Orleans, to remove attention from them during the day on the raft. Huck Finn
People at the Camp King and Duke Vs. Huck and Jim When the King and Duke are introduced into Huck and Jim’s lives they have conflicting lifestyles and slowly they take control of the raft and what they do. The King and Duke make Huck and Jim serve them as well as go along with all their frantics. Huck and Jim let this happen. External Huck decides that he rather have the company and no quarreling than reveal who the King and Duke really are. Huck does not want the trouble of going against someone and just tries appreciate the good.

with Huck and Jim. Huck
Jim and his Family
The Ring Master
The "Drunk Man" Gullible People Vs. Scammers In these episodes the main conflict is between the people that were mislead by the King and Duke and believed them, only to be scammed and displeased. These country folk are mislead time and time again and they go along with what everyone says, instead of thinking for themselves. External At the beginning Huck was amazed by the reciting of the Shakespeare and displayed the same gullibility the country folk will have. At the end he changes in being less gullible and realizes that the Kind and the Duke are FRAUDS.
The situation that develops between the towns people and Col. Sherburn reveals to Huck that people who go along with the crowd are less valued than people who think independently. At the end of this episode Jim becomes more of a father figure to Huck when he comprehends how much Jim cares of his children, in
comparison to Pap. 1) How long do you let a lie go on?
