Adventures Of Huck Finn And Tom Sawyer

Essay, Research Paper

Huckleberry Finn and Tom Sawyer are the best of friends with remarkably

different personalities. Each brings their unique characteristics into this

comical friendship giving the novel numerous amusing passages. Throughout the

tale, Tom is often the leader while Huck is the reluctant follower. It doesn?t

matter that Tom?s ideas are ridiculous and extravagant, and Huck?s are

simple and practical, together they always proceed with Tom?s imaginative

plans. In contrast to Tom?s great imagination and creativity, Huck is

humorless and literal minded. Tom?s imaginativeness comes only from knowledge

he has gained through books. Huck, on the other hand, actually lives out the

fantasies Tom can only imagine. Tom Sawyer, already civilized, follows the

values and beliefs of society. Due to these convictions, Tom always abides by

the laws. For these reasons, Tom would never have helped free Jim unless he knew

that Jim had already been freed. Conversely, Huck Finn rejects the philosophy of

political beliefs for the fear of becoming civilized. He usually runs away at

the first notion of him becoming ?sivilized.? Huck is able to function in

any society with the help of his adaptability and survival skills. He is able to

go from the freedom of the raft, to the perceived harshness of civilization, and

back again with ease. Although Tom has been able to slip past Death?s grip so

far, his chances of escaping may not always work out to his liking. Of the two,

Huck will always be the survivor in life. Together this pair achieves their

goals because of their intelligence and witty personalities. They have the

ability to put the knowledge they obtain into their every day lives. They are

two adventurous souls in search of fresh and exhilarating escapades. Their ages

united with their exceptional education keeps them on their toes. Huck?s

humorless personality and Tom?s extravagance has made The Adventures of

Huckleberry Finn, by Mark Twain, a popular adventure for all ages. The American

people have forever enjoyed this novel and have made it the American literary

classic that it is today. ?So there ain?t nothing more to write about an?

we is rottin? glad of it, because if we?d ?a? knowed what a trouble it

was to make this essay, and, we wouldn?t ?a? tackled it, and ain?t

a-going to no more.? -Mark Twain pg. 283
