Huck Finn: Chapter 1-5

PERSONAL REACTIONS:
I find this book to be very confusing, at least at certain parts. It isn’t really the language that gets me, its more the random thoughts that Huck has. Actually it isn’t even Huck who’s confusing me, it’s Tom Sawyer. He has this crazy imagination and I just have a hard time following their adventures as robbers.
To me Huck seems like a normal little boy, nothing too special. He reminds me a little of myself as a kid. I grew up in PA and I lived on a circle, and in the middle of the circle there was a forest like area that we would play Indians in, or Pilgrims, or just goof off in the forest. I really liked school though, and I was a pretty good kid all around. Helped my mom out, kept my room in a semblance of order.
My feelings about Tom Sawyer are a bit negative. I don’t like him, or I don’t think I would like him very much if he was a real person. He seems very egotistical and doesn’t believe that he could be wrong. He makes fun of Huck, or puts Huck down whenever Huck challenges him. He doesn’t let the other kids really do anything unless it’s ok with him. At first, I thought Tom was a lot older than Huck but now I don’t think he is, maybe 2 or 3 years older.
Now Huck’s dad confuses me, he seems to genuinely care about Huck. Maybe it’s that he feels that he is responsible for this kid, and he better take care of him but Huck’s dad can’t take care of himself so it’s not really working out. Huck’s dad came to find him, and though he mistreats Huck I still think that he really cares about Huck, and thinks what he’s doing is the right thing.
This is a bit off subject, but sometimes when I think of Huck Pip (I think he was the character in Great Expectations). I’m not really sure why, but now that I think about it these two books start somewhat similarly. Pip and Huck were both beat by family, but had positive figures in their life (Joe and the Widow). And they both seem to have a good deal of money, and both were being ‘civilized’ because they have money. I just am seeing common characteristics, maybe I’ll see some more similarities between these two books.

MOTIFS

Truth vs. Lies- There were a lot of references to lying in the first five chapters.
“Which is mostly a true book with some stretchers,” (Ch. 1, Pg. 1) tells the reader that Tom Sawyer wasn’t totally true, but mostly true. I know that this is the ‘motif section’ but I’m going to add a little bit of commentary anyways. This Remind be fables and legends, they are supposed to be a grain of truth that was exaggerated over the years. Personally, this leads me to believe that this story will be a close version of the truth more accurate than The Adventures of Tom Sawyer.
“I judged that all that stuff was only just one of Tom Sawyer’s lies.” (Ch. 3, Pg. 14) This thoughts makes me dislike AND distrust Tom Sawyer. This statement leads me to believe that he lies quite often, and isn’t bothered by it. Though this incident was just Tom Sawyer not having his facts straight. Which makes me think of something else, my little brother is a bit like Tom Sawyer. I don’t mean that my brother is an evil little kid, he’s a real sweetheart, he just doesn’t often know what he’s talking about and it can get him into a little bit of trouble now and again.
“Don’t ask me nothing-- then I won’t have to tell no lies.” (Ch. 4, Pg. 16) I find this quote to be interesting and thought provoking. This quote tells the reader that Huck does like, but he doesn’t like lying. Which I find to be a very respectable thing, most of us do lie and some of us feel no remorse at telling lies, but Huck is a good person and feels that lying is wrong. I find this to be very admirable.
“It’s the hand of a man that’s started in on a new life, and’ll die before he’ll go back.” (Ch. 5, Pg. 22) Not much to say, I mostly just wanted to put that this is a BIG FAT LIE!
Civilized vs. Uncivilized- Just as a starting not I think civilized is relative
“The Widow Douglas she took me for her son, and allowed she would sivilize me; but it was rough living in a house all the time,”(1) this thought mentions the civilizing of Huck, and how he had a hard time adjusting to the changes. And I was thinking after I had read through the first few chapters and was looking at our instructions, what we think is civilized is going to be totally different then what civilized is going to be in this book. And that maybe since Huck is from the poorer class, that he may be very civilized for what he is. So I think, how civilized Huck is compared to his environment isn’t as important as how much more civilized he is than he used to be. I don’t think that at the beginning of the book Huck is uncivilized.
I’m not going to find a quote for this, but the way Huck and the other kids and poorer people talk isn’t ‘proper English.’ I guess that would be an example of how civilized you are, if you speak correctly or not.
“At first I hated school, but by and by and got so I could stand it.” (15) This is, I suppose, another example of the (as I will now call it) ‘domestication of Huck.’ Learning to like school, or at least be able to handle it without skipping too often.
“I was getting sort of used to the widow’s ways, too, and they weren’t so raspy on me.” (15) Very similar to the last quote, STEP TWO IN THE DOMESTICATION OF HUCK! I actually think that this is very good, that he is starting to like the widow and her worldly ways. Also that he is starting to like living in a house and being clean.
“He was fifty, and …caved in, like a lid.” (18) That whole section, when I first read it, screamed FILTHY UNCIVILIZED HILLBILLY! But just now when I went back and found it I realized that, though correct in this case, appearances aren’t everything. That we shouldn’t judge people on the clothes they wear or the way the talk. People can be brilliant and smart without stepping foot inside a school. People may dress a little shabby, but they can still be respectable people. I know that was a little off topic but I thought this was the category it fit best under.
“He said a body could reform the old man with a shotgun, maybe, but he didn’t know no other way.” (22)I find this amusing, that may be a little sick but I like how the Judge went to all out supportive to flat out ready to shoot the guy. It’s also very sad that Huck’s father won’t ever be ‘civilized’ according to the expectations of his peers.

Superstitions- not very many of these, but superstitions are quite silly. (oh, another thought on superstition in general. I bet some people believe Religion to be a superstition. Not I myself, but I was just thinking that)
“Pretty soon a spider went crawling…with a thread to keep witches away.” (3) That is one really superstition kid, all that just because he killed a spider? Though I must admit flicking a spider off your shoulder and having it land on a candle and shrivel up doesn’t bode well. So maybe the robbers thing will end badly.
“One morning I happened to turn over the saltcellar at breakfast. I reached for some of it as quick as I could to throw over my left shoulder and keep off the bad luck,” (15) But he doesn’t get the chance and then his dad comes. BAD LUCK! I’ve heard of this superstition, I think It’s also supposed to ward of witches too. I do believe I saw that in the moved ‘Bubble, Bubble, Toil, and Trouble.”

Heaven/Hell-Religion- this book has quite a few statements relating to religion, though in my o pinion aren’t necessary but are a nice touch.
“Then she told me all about the bad place, and I said I wished I was there.” (2) I find this immeasurable amusing. He doesn’t really care where he goes as long as it’s not where he is. That’s quite amusing., but here’s a reference to hell.
“Then Miss Watson she took me in the closet and prayed, but nothing came of it. She told me to pray everyday, and whatever I asked for I would get it.” (10) This thought is strange, I don’t really understand that . God gives you what you pray for if he sees that it is part of your life. It’s a strange thing, I don’t know exactly what I think about it.
Chapters 6-10

PERSONAL REACTIONS
I don’t understand why Huck’s dad is so upset about Huck going to school, the smarter Huck is the better living he can earn. And isn’t that mostly was his dad is worried about, Huck making money so that he doesn’t have to worry about it?
Where did that cabin come from? I don’t see how Huck’s dad could have forseen this event. He doesn’t seem like the type of man who plans ahead. So it seems a little off the wall. Maybe he was sneaking around at night and building the cabin just for the heck of it. Or maybe when he was away or at home or whatever he was making a cabin, to live in.
WHY IS HUCK’S DAD ALWAYS DRUNK!? He’s forever beating poor Huck, cussing the world and causing general mayhem. He’s always getting arrested and stuff, and then he locked Huck inside the house for a few days. He then attempted to kill Huck, when he was drunk and thought Huck was the angel of death.
I wonder who’s canoe that is… It’s very strange, if I had such a nice canoe I wouldn’t let it float away. I think this story gets to be a little far-fetched. Canoes don’t just float up to people in need, and how could Huck have just stayed there until his dad came. He should have gotten out of there as fast as possible.
So Jim and Huck are on the island, that’s fine and dandy. Huck got thee because some mysterious canoe floated up to him, fine that’s good. But how does Jim now how to swim? Most people didn’t know how to swim way back when, so this make’s not even the slightest sense to me. Maybe I’m being to critical.
I wonder what Huck looks like as a girl…

MOTIFS

Truth vs. Lies
“’What you doin’ with this gun?’ I judged he didn’t know nothing about what he had been doing, so I says: ‘Somebody was trying to get in, so I was laying for him.” (30) I understand why Huck would lie in this situation, at first I didn’t understand cause it seemed like a major time jump. But it makes sense because his dad probably wouldn’t like that fact that he was keeping a gun on him.
“But I told him I fell in the river, and that was made me so long.” (31) I also understand why he told this lie, he seems to tell a kind of white lies. They only help him, but they help him from getting a beating so I feel that justifies telling the lie. Not that it lying to help yourself is a good thing, but his father is unreasonable abusive.
In chapter 7 Huck has an elaborate scheme to fool everyone into thinking he’s dead. Which is like lying. I think fooling his Dad and the others wasn’t very nice, I think he should have gone back to the widow. He did enjoy himself there for some time














Civilized vs. Uncivilized
“Every time he got money he got drunk; every time he go drunk he raised Cain around town, and every time he raised Cain he got jailed.” (23) I don’t really understand the phrase ‘raising Cain,’ but I assume it’s pretty much wreaking havoc. Well this is an interesting domino effect type thing he has going on. He isn’t a very smart drunk, not that many are but I’m sure most of them during that time didn’t get arrested every time they got drunk. This is very uncivilized in my modern day opinion, and I guess it was to many of the people in town.
“I didn’t see how I got to like it so well at the widow’s, where you had to wash, and eat on a plate, and comb up, and go to bed and get up regular.” (24) and “I had stopped cussing cause the widow didn’t like it; but now I took it up again cause pap hadn’t no objections.” I put these both on here cause I realized I pretty much had the same exact thing to say about both of them. Huck never really liked living at the Widow’s, I think he liked the fact that she was pleased that he was doing what she wanted him to do. He’s a pleaser, does things to make others happy. Or that’s what it seems like, as long as he gets something out of it.

Superstitions
“Ef you’s got hairy arms en a hairy breas’, it’s a sign dat you’s a-gwyne to be rich.” (45) I like this one, cause I have nasty hairy arms compared to others. ^0^ It’ll ALL PAY OFF! I think this is kinda of a weird superstition though… very.
“And Jim said you mustn’t count the things you are going to cook for dinner, because that would bring bad luck.”(45) I don’t really get many of these quotes but I’ll put them up here anyways…
“Worst bad luck in the world to touch a snake-skin,” (52)

Heaven/Hell-Religion
“He chased me round and round the place with a clasp knife, calling me the Angel of Death, and saying that he would kill me.” (29) I don’t think it’s possible to kill the Angel of Death, or at least doesn’t seem to make much sense.
“I reckon the widow or parson or somebody prated that this bread would find me, and here it has gone and done it.” (37) That’s so neat!






















Chapters 11-15

PERSONAL REACTIONS
I think it’s really awesome that that lady could figure he was a boy just by threading a needle. I can’t thread a needle, well I can but the head or whatever has to be bigger than normal. I really didn’t get what they meant by catching things between their knees, what’s that? Well, I’ve been thinking about it and I think it’s like when I was little I would run around catching things in my shirt (cause they came down to pretty much my knees) instead of my hands. So I was thinking it would be something similar.
Huck really idolizes Tom Sawyer, when he thinks it’s like he’s been brainwashed sometimes. “WWTSD! What would Tom Sawyer do?” I don’t think he should idolize such a mischievous brat. It’s not wise, good thing he has Jim. I think Jim is a very good role model. /he’s very smart, and when I think of him the phrase ‘Look before you leap!’ comes into mind. Though he did run away, who want to be a slave.
This is something I’ve been talking about with my mom, the world nigga.’ I personally believe that the context it’s used in it’s not an insult, it’s just the way that black people were referred too. Mark Twain doesn’t use the words to make people mad, he just uses it because when he wrote this book and the time its written about, nigga’ was an acceptable word to use. Like today some people don’t like to call black people black, and call them African American. Well the problem is most black people you’ll run into are NOT African American, they are American Blacks or Caribbean Blacks. That might be easier for some people than others, like all my cousins and a lot of my aunts and uncles are black. My mom’s family is white, I never recognized this as a difference. But I guess it’s just what you grow up around. I know this got way of topic, but I felt like writing it down somewhere.
I think Huck is a good person, he tried to save the lives of those robbers/murderers. That was very big of him, and even though they may have died anyways, he still felt that it was his duty to try to save them. He did the right thing by taking their boat because: one, this story would be way to short and not have much of a point if he were dead; and two, they all couldn’t of gotten on the boat because the robbers would have probably killed him and Jim, or at least dumped them overboard.

MOTIFS

Truth vs. Lies
“ ‘What might your name be?’ ‘Sarah Williams.’” (55) I think this was at first totally unnecessary, but as I read on it was a good thing he told this little lie. He probably saved his and Jim’s skin by being so ‘adventurous.’ But I still think the reason he did this was wrong,. It wasn’t very smart because it increased the chances of someone looking on the island and he had no need to find out this information aside from satisfying his curiosity.
On pages 73-75 Huck lies to the ferryman. I think this is a very reasonable lie to tell, trying to save lives is generally a good thing in my opinion. Huck tells a lot of white lies, which may not be a good thing. Usually his telling a lie is brought on by himself, so I guess it’s his fault and he could have prevented it. Like this whole little ‘adventure’ could have been avoided had he just stayed with his dad or gone and lived with the widow.
On pages 83-86 Huck plays a cruel ‘joke’ on Jim. He tells him he doesn’t remember at all what happened the night before. This was just plain cruel. I don’t know why Huck would do that, it’s mean spirited and nothing is gained from lying like that except anger towards you from another person.


Civilized vs. Uncivilized
“I don’t want to John Packard. I’m for killin’ him-”(68) Killing people isn’t very civilizes, especially since I believe the reason they were going to kill him was to get his money or get even or some other reason that has no sound basis.
“’Well den! Dad blame it, why doan’ he talk like a man? You answer me dat!’” (80) I think that being open-minded to ideas that or new, or new to you, is very important. The fact that Jim isn’t even listening to Huck and that he is just carrying on as if it doesn’t matter what anyone else thinks and that only his opinion is right is very close minded. I associate close-mindedness with people who are uncivilized.
“It was fifteen minutes before I could work myself up to go and humble myself to a nigger;” (86) I think it was very good for Huck to go and apologize to Jim, he should have felt bad. I think this is an example of civilization because it’s showing that he is equal to this black man.

Superstitions
The funny thing is, I couldn’t find any superstitions. Most of the other sections had quite a few.

Heaven/Hell-Religion
On pages 76-78 Huck and Jim talk about Soloman. This doesn’t have too much to do with Heaven and Hell, but this is all I could find. Well so they are debating whether Soloman was wise, and I think Jim actually has a good point. It would make more sense to ask around than to do what he did, but what he did showed that he know a quicker way that had the same result.
Chapters 31-35

Personal Reactions
I really enjoyed this section of the book ‘the climax,’ it was so interesting. I even got a little teary eyed even though I knew it was coming. I told my mom we were doing a project on Huck Finn and so she checked out a DVD on Mark Twain. It was really interesting, but they put the climax of this book on the video. They had some one reading out loud, but Mark Twain was a really crazy dude. He also had a really awesome writing area.
Huck must be a really sweet boy, and I bet he’s just precious. I see a kid that looks like my brother, well my brother when he was younger. He was a cute little pudge-ster, that’s what my dad called us when we were little kids. But Huck seems like the type of little boy that everyone loves to dote upon and all the little boys rough up on him, and all the little girls treat him like he’s one of them. Except for the fact that Huck is really too rough and tumble to be like that, but if he had grown up in out day and age I highly doubt he would be so rough.
This book is so unlikely., what are the chances of Huck stumbling upon the family of Tom Sawyer. NIL! It’s an interesting twist, but totally unrealistic. Though this whole book isn’t that realistic, so I guess I should stop knocking it.
The King and the Duke got what they deserved, they probably got better than they deserved.
Some of those slaves are really paranoid about witches and other stuff, but Jim has become less superstitious from being with Jim.
Huck and Tom most look a lot alike to pass for brother and sister, though my little brother and don’t look related at all.
Motifs
Lying vs. Truth
“You can’t pray a lie” (213)–– God knows what’s in your heart, you can’t fool him with your thoughts. If your going to be honest with anyone, be honest with God. He won’t betray you.
“Get them out to one side and pump them a little, and fine out who I was” (222). He automatically told them that he is whoever he is, without knowing anything or what he was getting himself into. That wasn’t a very smart lie, but fortunately for Huck his lies tend to work out in the end.
Civilized vs. Uncivilized
“I would go to work and steal Jim our of slavery again” (214); FIGHT SOCIETY! This is anti-establishment, I like it because what Huck is standing up against is really a bad thing. DOWN WITH SLAVERY!
“The old gentleman was for going along with me” (224), This is a really polite gesture. It’s very kind, good manners. Only civilized people have manners, or good ones at least.
Superstition
“What you want to come back and ha’ nt me for” (225)? Who knew Tom Sawyer feared spirits! But that’s not such a big surprise I suppose, everyone in this book is superstitious beyond belief.
“He said the witches was pestering him awful these nights” (236), Slaves are very paranoid, always thinking that witches have it out for them. Isn’t Jim the one who had a hair ball and the one who thought witches drug him around the world? I do believe so, It’s silly but convenient that this slave thinks that witches are after him.




Heaven vs. Hell/Religion
“Deep down in me I knowed it was a lie, and He knowed it” (213). This is really touching, because right now I feel like many things are not really going my way. But when I pray I can figure things out, in prayer things seem to sort themselves out. Like the Lord is pulling things out of my heart and helping me sort things out.
“All right, then, I’ll go to hell” (214)! He would brave the fire and brimstone of hell for his friend, that is some serious commitment to friendship. That’s wrong though, your not supposed to put friends before God. But maybe this really isn’t him putting Jim before God, just him putting Jim before society. Chapters 36-40

Personal Reactions
Tom is the most annoying kid in the world, what is his problem. They end up making most of it up, why don’t they just pretend to make it all up and get Jim away safely. That would have been much less trouble and wouldn’t have taken away from the book.
Jim is smart, I’m sure he could have figured out a way to get out on his own. I think he may have liked it in there, he was fed well and treated nicely. Though he probably would have been sold, so that may have actually ended poorly.
Aren’t they a little young to be smoking? PEOPLE SHOULDN’T SMOKE! It is a nasty habit, and it ruins your mouth and lungs and just about everything. Your teeth turn yellow, you smell like an ashtray, you get sores in your mouth, your lungs turn and you eventually get cancer. It kills your voice, and ruins your respiratory system. Crazy teens and these habits they pick up, CIGRAETTES SHOULD BE BANNED, MADE ILLEAGAL, SOMETHING!!
I feel bad for that slave that is helping Tom and Huck out, the poor guy keeps getting tricked into thinking that there are witches bothering him. I think it’s cruel of Huck and Tom to let him believe that.
Motifs
Lying vs. Truth
“Dig him out with picks, and let on it’s case-knives” (246). Huck and Tom decide to do this quite often, it reminds me of when people say ‘lets not and say we did.’ As a matter of fact they are the same things, but I think this is quite a smart tall tale.
‘Tom stole a pewter spoon and a brass candlestick” (247), Stealing, lying, very similar. I understand stealing the spoon to make a pen, well not really but it makes a lot more sense than a candlesticks. Aren’t candlesticks usually really huge and heavy and hard? While spoons are bendy and not so heavy? Again the unrealistic factor.
Civilized vs. Uncivilized
“I don’t care shucks of morality of it, no how” (246). We were talking about the great civilizations in geography, and one of the things I recall Mr. Buchman saying was that all the great civilizations have morals that are blended together from different cultures.
“Jim had plenty of corn-cob pipes and tobacco; so we had a right down good sociable time”(249); Smoking and talking is considered to be a very classy thing to do in some societies, like in some natives cultures tribes will pass around a pipe and share a smoke and tell stories. But smoking is still bad! BAD!
Superstition
“The nigger Nat just hollered “witches” once” (249), Poor Nat! It really sucks that he’s getting tricked into believing all this stuff is caused by witches.
“It always is when it’s done right” (262). Perhaps Tom is afraid of causing some taboo by not going along with what the people in his books did.
Heaven vs. Hell/Religion
I couldn’t find anything!












Chapters 41-42

Personal Reactions
Can I shoot Tom? What is his problem? WHY MUST HE MAKE THINGS SO DIFFICULT! If I were Jim I would be extremely upset with Tom, I maybe driven to accidentally shove him in the river. Ugh! What an annoying kid!
I think Aunt Sally seems really cool, Huck should be glad that she’s going to be his new mom. Though she is a bit on the eccentric side, what mom isn’t?
Jim is such a good person, It’s awesome that he would sacrifice his freedom for the life of a brat like Tom Sawyer. He could have been home free had he just stayed hidden, but he jumped out and helped the doctor save Tom. I don’t know that I could do that for someone, though I’m sure Jim is under the impression that Tom is the one that gave him his freedom so he owes it to him.
THESE PEOPLE TALK SO WEIRD!
Motifs
Lying vs. Truth
“No, I ain’t out of…wasn’t it bully, Aunty” (289)? The whole story is let out! Poor Aunty Sally and her honest soul. But at least she finally knows the whole story, and those boys do deserve a whupping. They should haven’t lied, and Tom shouldn’t have been so silly in wanting to steal Jim. That was just foolishness.
“He ain’t no slave; he’s as free as any cretur that walks this earth” (289)! It’s beyond me how the mind of Tow Sawyer thinks. It doesn’t occur to him that the freedom of Jim is more important than his little ‘thirst for adventure.‘ Obviously not, he needs to learn what is more important, to prioritize!
Civilized vs. Uncivilized
“The place was full of farmers and farmers’ wives” (279), what an awesome support system! Its really nice how they joined together to help the Phelps through their time of need. And these neighbors don’t just live down the street, they would be living miles away. It’s nice to see that these people can be civil and helpful.
“I’ve ransacked that-air cabin”(279), Ransacking sounds very primitive, very uncivilized.
Superstitions
I couldn’t find any!

  Chapter 15-20

1. These Chapters have really confused me, I was having trouble following what was going on. They got lost, and they weren’t and then they were at Cairo and then they weren’t. To me is seemed very back and forth, so I had a really tough time following what was going on and so I couldn’t make too many observations.
2. But I did fine the family feud between the Grangerfords’ and the Sheperdsons’. It was very interesting, cause it reminded of Romeo and Juliet. Both feuds were silly and lots of people died. But I thought Romeo and Juliet was really boring and too sappy. But this was actually interesting, I thought it was funny how they took their guns to church.
3. It was awesome of Jim to have waited for Huck, I’m surprised that he didn’t give up and go North. I probably would have, to be free from slavery would have been by number one priority on my list. But maybe the situation is different when your actually there, maybe if I knew Huck I wouldn’t have left him there was those crazy people.

so talented
but alas
my unfortune
is that my path seems blessed with one thing
you
~me

(oo! I like this poem! actually just the very end, but it's pretty good in general. Amy inspired it, not that I particularly follow amy, but like I said I was gonna do whatever she did and the world follow popped in to me head and my brain 'threw up' the rest of it)

  From the moment I met you
I knew I would like you
I never thought
that I would find
that maybe there's a little more
than liking
but now I see
that once you like something
you are bound to love it
so like me...
then I know you'll love me.
~me

(ok, I don't mean this all sappy, it's actually about my friends, ok? I love all my friends, ALL of them. And it's just that I realized that most everyone is my friend... and I love everyone. I feel a connection of some sort to most people... It's kinda crazy and random I know. but that's the way it has to be.)

  I wish I could see
into your mind
and find
what I most need to see
to know what you think
and what you feel,
for me

  I learned to like you
the day I met you
you smiled
and won me over
you didn't have to say a word
and I would still have been your friend

  I'm breaking
my walls are falling
my strength is failing
your hate is ripping me apart
I'm breaking
you criticism cuts deep
you cruelty strikes hard
and your words make me cru
I'm breaking
I can't stand strong
not a moment longer
I'm breaking
breaking
breaking
~me

  So funny
is the litte red head
quite so smart
and yet so not
though her mind is very big
(for it is part mine)
the computer
will eat it
