Chapters 1-4Quote: “At first I hated school, but by and by I got so I could stand it” (15) Huck Although Huck thought school was boring at first, he soon realized that everything he was learning was actually important and at the same time interesting. He realized that what he was learning could one day come in handy. The idea to learn intrigued Huck, as it was something he would have never been able to do if he was still with his father. TwainHuck still isn’t getting used to going to school, but he is facing difficult times at home. His educated is not improving, he hasn’t made progress from the beginning of the school year. Huck is starting to see more obstacles in his life, making school seem better than it actually is. Chapters 5-8Quote: “It was ‘lection day, and I was just about to go vote myself if I warn’t too drunk to get there; but when they told me there was a state in this country where they’d let that nigge vote, i drawed out. I says I’ll never vote ag’in” (27)Character Pap decides not to vote as Black people are being praised. Pap see this as a weakness in the country, as he grew up believing that he was part of the superior race. In southern society, it is believed that people of color should not be treated as humans. By not voting, Pap believes that he is punishing the government. TwainTwain fun of Pap’s drunkenness in this chapter and this quote. Pap thinks that by not voting he is going to punish the government, but he is really just silencing his opinion. Twain uses situational irony to show pap’s foolishness. We know that voting is the only way to get your voice heard. By not voting, it makes pap seem like he is okay with what is going on in the world around them. However due to his monologue, we know this is not the case.Chapters 9-11Quote: “Ef you’s got hairy arms en a hairy breas’, it’s a sign dat you’s a-gwyne to be rich” (46)HuckHuck tends to rely more on superstitions than his own religion. He leans on Jim to tell him what he wants to hear- that his life will lead to something worthwhile when he grows up. We learn that Huck finds religion to be ridiculous, but he tends to want to find the answers to which religion gives. After being criticized for his entire life, all Huck wants is to know if something good will come out of his painTwainTwain mocks Huck for believing in superstitions that do not exist in the world. Instead of facing the truth, Huck relies on his beliefs to try to avoid the harsh reality of his life. Huck wants something that he probably will never achieve and relies on fate to reach these impossible goals.Chapters 12-14Quote: “I never see pap he didn’t want the chicken himself, but that is what he used to say, anyway” (65) HuckAlthough Huck never sees his dad, he justifies it by telling himself that pap is just preoccupied. Huck believes that his father does in fact value him, rather that something came up and has taken his time away from Huck. Huck doesn’t want to believe that his father cares more about drinking than his son. TwainTwain uses this quote to highlight the main problem of human beings themselves. Twain shows how they only rely on people when they need help. Like the chicken, Pap only acknowledges Huck when it is useful and beneficial for himself. This happened when Pap realized that Huck had money. Pap only wanted Huck to live with him, so he would be able to take his son’s fortune.Chapters 15-16Quote: “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” (86) HuckAlthough Huck apologized to Jim for the trick he played on him, he doesn’t really feel bad for doing it. The only reason he did it was because he knew how hurt Jim felt. However, he didn’t understand why he had to confess his wrongs to him because although Jim is his friend, he is black which automatically makes him less superior to Huck. TwainTwain is pointing out a main flaw in our society which is how white people think they are the superior race and are treated in such a way. Huck wronged his friend and Jim was extremely hurt by it, but Huck cannot grasp why he should say sorry. His society teaches him that they should never feel bad for what they do to the black slaves and that they are less of a person that he is.Chapters 17-18Quote: “But I reckon that with her disposition she was having a better time in the graveyard” (101)HuckThrough the pictures Huck saw hung up on the Grangerford’s wall, he believed that their daughter had a lot of grief and heartache in her life. He believes this due to her dark and grim artwork. Huck believes that she had a constant feeling of loneliness and her artwork portrayed those feelings. TwainTwain uses to situational and dramatic irony highlight Huck’s lack of compassion and understanding. As an audience, we expect him to feel compassion that the girl died. It is dramatic irony because we know that art does not always have to reflect our deepest feeling, but Huck does not realize that art can come from other places. The situational irony that is used shows how the Grangerford girl wrote a lot about death and she is now dead.Chapters 19-20Quote: “… but I stayed about one night longer than I ought to, and was just in the act of sliding out when I ran across you on the trail this side of town, and you told me they were coming, and begged me to help you to get off. So I told you I was expecting trouble myself, and would scatter out with you” (123)HuckIt is nice to see that two people are willing to help each other get out of a bad situations.This is like how Huck and Jim helped each other out when they needed help running away. Although he wasn’t quite sure if he should help the two me or not, he believed it was the best thing to do. Huck does this because he would like people to do this for him. Although he is cautious Huck goes with his gut to help the men in need.TwainTwain shows how people only rely on others when they themselves are in need. Mankind has a problem depending on people and later falling on them those who have helped them. We are often unable to treat people with equal amounts of respect and kindness, but when our own life is in danger, we automatically turn to others for support. We are not able to give back what we have recieved.Chapters 21-23Quote: “The idea of you lynching anybody! It’s amusing. The idea of you thinking you had plunk enough to lynch a man… The crowd washed back sudden, and then broke all apart, and went tearing off every which way” (145-146)CharactersAfter Sherburn killed Boggs, the townspeople came together to kill him for justice. Although Boggs was verbally threatening him, the people believed it was crazy and unjustifiable how Sherburn killed the harmless drunk. When Sherburn confronted the mob, they quickly dispersed and ended their search for justice. TwainTwain mocks how people are quick to accept popular beliefs, but cannot carry through with their actions. People love to talk big and join in the mob mentality, however when they are confronted, they chicken out. In other words, people are quick to to say that they support equality and justice, but are scared to act on their words. Chapters 24-26Quote: “Because Mary Jane ‘ll be in mourning from this out; and first you know the nigger that does up the rooms will get an order to box these duds up and put ’em away; and do you reckon a nigger can run across money and not borrow some of it?” (177)The Duke The Duke implies that all black people steal and that it is an urge that they could never resist. Due to his claim, he and The King will have no problem stealing the money without raising any questions, ad they Wilks girls believe every word they say.TwainTwain shows the injustice our society has against people of different colors by making the Duke’s statement contradictory. The Duke says that only blacks steal, however, he himself is a con artist. This highlights how in society, people willingly allow social injustice to go on without any consequences whatsoever. Chapters 27-29Quote: “And it was the niggers.. The beautiful trip to England was most about spoiled for her; she didn’t how she was ever going to be happy there, knowing the mother and children warn’t ever see each other no more” (185)Mary JaneMary Jane feels awful about going to join her “uncles” on their journey to England because she would be splitting up a slave family. Knowing that her actions may cause children from seeing their mother kills her. The last thing that she would ever want to do was to destroy a family, even if they are her slaves. TwainTwain showcases the fact that white people are taught from a very young age to hate black slaves. He believes that society causes this hatred, you are not born with these beliefs, you are taught them. Mary Jane is one of the few people in the novel so far, who acknowledges that slaves also have feelings. She feels bad for the way they are treated. Twain highlights this trait of hers by showing how hurt she was when she realized what would happen if she left.
