It is his literal, pragmatic approach to his surroundings and his inner struggle with his conscience that make him one of the most important and recognizable figures in American literature. As a coming of age character in the late nineteenth century, Huck views his surroundings with a practical and logical lens.
After this, events quickly resolve themselves. During the actual escape and resulting pursuit, Tom is shot in the leg, while Jim remains by his side, risking recapture rather than completing his escape alone.
Huck develops another story on the fly and explains his disguise as the only way to escape from an abusive foster family. He makes an adventurous voyage with the slave Jim, drifting down the Mississippi on a raft.
As with several of the frontier literary characters that came before him, Huck possesses the ability to adapt to almost any situation through deceit.
Mark Twain, in his lecture notes, proposes that "a sound heart is a surer guide than an ill-trained conscience" and goes on to describe the novel as " After a while, Huck and Jim come across a grounded steamship.
Petersburg, Missouri based on the actual town of Hannibal, Missourion the shore of the Mississippi River "forty to fifty years ago" the novel having been published in Hearn suggests that Twain and Kemble had a similar skill, writing that: He regards it as the veriest trash.
Whatever he may have lacked in technical grace Clark filed a request with the school district in response to the required reading of the book, asking for the novel to be removed from the English curriculum.
Kemble shared with the greatest illustrators the ability to give even the minor individual in a text his own distinct visual personality; just as Twain so deftly defined a full-rounded character in a few phrases, so too did Kemble depict with a few strokes of his pen that same entire personage.
When asked by a Brooklyn librarian about the situation, Twain sardonically replied: In the next town, the two swindlers then impersonate brothers of Peter Wilks, a recently deceased man of property. However, Hearn continues by explaining that "the reticent Howells found nothing in the proofs of Huckleberry Finn so offensive that it needed to be struck out".
The teacher, John Foley, called for replacing Adventures of Huckleberry Finn with a more modern novel. The two hastily load up the raft and depart.
In the resulting conflict, all the Grangerford males from this branch of the family are shot and killed, including Buck, whose horrific murder Huck witnesses. Yet Huck is not some irresponsible wanderer through adolescence; he has a conscience.
In the meantime, Jim has told the family about the two grifters and the new plan for "The Royal Nonesuch", and so the townspeople capture the duke and king, who are then tarred and feathered and ridden out of town on a rail.
These traits are part of the reason that Huck Finn was viewed as a book not acceptable for children, yet they are also traits that allow Huck to survive his surroundings and, in the conclusion, make the right decision. The treatments both of them receive are radically different, especially with an encounter with Mrs.
Because Huck believes that the laws of society are just, he condemns himself as a traitor and a villain for acting against them and aiding Jim.
Huck simply reports what he sees, and the deadpan narration allows Twain to depict a realistic view of common ignorance, slavery, and the inhumanity that follows. Inhigh school student Calista Phair and her grandmother, Beatrice Clark, in RentonWashington, proposed banning the book from classroom learning in the Renton School District, though not from any public libraries, because of the word "nigger".
