Have you ever experienced culture shock? Have you ever found yourself in a new environment where the people around you wanted you to conform to their standards? Did you dislike those standards and resist them? The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn takes place in the early nineteenth century in St. Petersburg, a fictional small town in northeastern Missouri on the banks of the Mississippi River. Petersburg was inspired by the real-life town of Hannibal, Missouri, where Samuel Clemens, who wrote under the pen name of Mark Twain, grew up.
The main character is Huckleberry Finna homeless child. Huck's mother is dead and his father, Papis abusive, drunken, and frequently absent. At the opening of The Adventures of Huckleberry FinnHuck and his friend Tom Sawyer have become rich after finding treasure in a cave. Pap has disappeared from the town, and no one knows where he is or even if he is still alive. At the end of the previous book, The Adventures of Tom Sawyerthe Widow Douglas had adopted Huck and Hucks Adventure With Miss Watsons Jim (Begin) - Playhouse - The Wild And Wonderful Ventures Of Hu him into her house to live with her.
The Widow Douglas is a wealthy, highly respected member of the St. Petersburg community. Before his death, her husband had been a justice of the peace, and he was highly regarded for punishing dangerous criminals such as Injun Joe, the villain of The Adventures of Tom Sawyer. The Widow is kind and generous to the poor, and she had fed and given shelter to Huck even before she formally adopted him.
However, a conflict arises between Huck and the Widow Douglas because she's determined to 'civilize' him. She wants him to observe the strict social rules of the upper class, go to church, and go to school. For his part, Huck wants to continue living like a homeless person, which he finds far more comfortable.
Huck runs away, but Tom Sawyer convinces Huck to go back to her. Tom promises Huck that he will allow him to join Tom's 'robber band,' a group of Underdogg - Cut Killer - Street Maroc (La Mixtape Avant LAlbum) who play 'make-believe' and pretend they are highwaymen. Tom insists that Huck can only join the group if he is a 'respectable' member of society, so Huck agrees to go back to the Widow Douglas.
Miss Watson is the Widow Douglas's sister. She moves in with the Widow Douglas shortly after the Widow adopts Huck. Miss Watson owns a slave named Jimwho she treats cruelly. Like the Widow Douglas, Miss Watson wants Huck to become a Christian and conform to the social standards of the upper class.
However, Miss Watson is far more domineering to Huck than her sister is. Once, Huck comes home dirty and disheveled after spending a night out playing with Tom and the other boys. Miss Watson scolds him harshly, but the Widow just gets him a fresh set of clothes. When the Widow Douglas tells him about Heaven, it makes his mouth water, but when Miss Watson tells him about it, he says he would rather go to Hell. They are extremely conscious of the role that manners, appearance, and etiquette play in the maintenance of their reputation.
They are both eager to make Huck conform to their idea of how a young man who is a member of the upper class and a good Christian should act. When the Widow tells him Cherry, Cherry - Jonathan King - Cherry, Cherry the Old Hucks Adventure With Miss Watsons Jim (Begin) - Playhouse - The Wild And Wonderful Ventures Of Hu prophet Moses, who led the children of Israel out of Egypt, Huck is initially interested, but he soon loses interest when he learns that Moses is dead.
Huck feels that only living people are relevant and worth discussing because you can't interact with dead people. Eventually Huck's father, Pap, comes back to St.
Petersburg after a long absence. He wants to get his hands on the money Huck has acquired, and he kidnaps Huck and locks him up in a cabin outside town. The Widow sues in court to regain custody of Huck, but she loses the lawsuit. Eventually, Huck manages to escape the cabin, but rather than return to the Widow, he runs away completely. His dislike of the Widow's and Miss Watson's lifestyle is a major factor in his decision. In his escape, he is joined by Miss Watson's slave, Jim, who has also run away.
Jim had overhead Fine Night (BK Remix) - Various - Tidy Music Library Issue 23 Watson talking with a slave trader who wanted to buy him so he could sell him at high profit 'down the river' in New Orleans. Being 'sold down the river' was a fate that slaves in northern slave states like Missouri dreaded because the sugar cane plantations in the Deep South were a more cruel environment than the farms farther north.
Jim and Huck agree to team up to make their escape from the area. Although both the Widow Douglas and Miss Watson have some good characteristics, their heavy-handed approach to Huck makes them both less than fully sympathetic characters.
Also, Miss Watson Hucks Adventure With Miss Watsons Jim (Begin) - Playhouse - The Wild And Wonderful Ventures Of Hu a hypocrite who preaches Christian kindness and generosity but is cruel to her loyal slave Jim and even considers selling him down the river to a horrible fate - perhaps even death.
Thus, both women serve as examples of upper-class snobbishness and hypocrisy that Mark Twain satirizes in the novel. After living with them, Huck decides that he would rather live on his own than be forced to conform to the expectations of upper class society.
Living with the two women also exposes Huck to Pretty Mouth - Purple (13) - Bodacious religious beliefs. By rejecting these beliefs, Huck sets out on a path of skepticism and self-reliance that characterizes many of his actions later in the novel.
Additionally, Miss Watson's cruelty to her slave Jim and her consideration of the idea of selling him down the river causes Jim to run away. During the rest of the novel, Jim and Huck are companions as they travel down the Mississippi River away from St.
