10 Q UOTATIONS C HAPTER 8 "My heart jumped up against my lungs...my breath came so hard I couldn't hear nothing else...it felt like a person had cut one of my breaths in two and I only got half..." (Twain 35). Analysis: Even though Huck often tries to come across as brave, he is still human and has fears and sometimes panics. Anna Hartmann

11 Q UOTATIONS C HAPTER 8 C ONTINUED "And Jim said you mustn't count the things you are going to cook for dinner, because that would bring bad luck...Jim knowed all kinds of signs. He said he knowed most everything" (Twain 40). Analysis: Jim believes he knows everything, even though he draws most statements from his imagination. Huck believes most of what Jim says, which shows how gullible people of that time period are. Anna Hartmann

12 Q UOTATIONS C HAPTER 9 "Directly it begun to rain, and it rained like all fury, too...looked all...lovely...a perfect ripper of a gust would follow along...when it was just about the bluest and blackest--fst! It was as bright as glory" (Twain 43-44). Analysis: Huck does not worry about the storm's potential danger because he is so in awe of its beauty and power. Huck is now more in touch with nature than he was in the beginning of the novel. Anna Hartmann

13 Q UOTATIONS C HAPTER 9 C ONTINUED "...I made Jim lay down in the canoe and cover up with the quilt, because if he had set up people could tell he was a n***** a good ways off" (Twain 46). Analysis: The people of this time period and setting are so prejudiced against African-Americans that Jim must hide down in the canoe to ensure he and Huck's safety. Anna Hartmann

14 Q UOTATIONS C HAPTER 10 Analysis: Huck is becoming more savvy about nature, but he is still an excitable teenage boy. He is exaggerating the truth, a trait which recurs throughout the novel. "...the first thing we done was to bait one of the big hooks with a skinned rabbit and set it and catch a catfish that was as big as a man..." (Twain 48). Anna Hartmann

15 Q UOTATIONS C HAPTER 10 C ONTINUED "...I was weakening; I was getting afraid that I had come; people might know my voice and find me out" (Twain 49). Analysis: Huck is becoming more paranoid and afraid about being discovered and realizing that he may not be as clever as he thinks he is. Anna Hartmann

16 Q UOTATIONS C HAPTER 11 "'A good many thinks he [Jim] done it. [killed Huck] But they'll get the n***** pretty soon now, and maybe they can scare it out of him'" (Twain 51). Analysis: Judith tells a disguised Huck that everyone believes Jim killed Huck. The people of this society are quick to judge based on race or social status and immediately assume it must have been Jim, even though Huck isn't really dead. Anna Hartmann

17 Q UOTATIONS C HAPTER 11 C ONTINUED "Jim never asked no questions, he never said a word; but the way he worked for the next half hour showed about how he was scared" (Twain 58). Analysis: Jim, although Huck is younger than he, still feels obligated to obey Huck and not question orders because Huck is white. Anna Hartmann

18 Q UOTATIONS C HAPTER 12 Analysis: Huck and Jim have begun to become comfortable with each other. Although this is still not an outright friendship, Huck's prejudiced opinion of Jim is showing signs of future change. "We catched fish and talked...It was kind of solemn, drifting down the big still river, laying on our backs looking up at the stars..."(Twain 58). Anna Hartmann

19 Q UOTATIONS C HAPTER 12 C ONTINUED "Mornings before daylight I...borrowed a watermelon, or a mushmelon, or a punkin...Pap always said it warn't no harm to borrow things...widow said it warn't anything but a soft name for stealing...toward daylight we concluded to drop crabapples and p'simmons" (Twain 59). Analysis: Huck and Jim are struggling between right and wrong. Authority figures in their lives have told them certain unwritten rules, but when those rules conflict, a compromise is necessary. This also shows that these figures still have an influence on Huck and Jim. Anna Hartmann

20 Q UOTATIONS C HAPTER 13 "Now was the first time that I begun to worry about the men...I begun to think how dreadful it was, even for murderers, to be in such a fix" (Twain 65). Analysis: Huck, deep inside, is a sympathetic, caring person. He has a truly good heart and puts himself in unfortunate people's shoes. He is beginning to regret mean deeds he has done. Anna Hartmann

21 Q UOTATIONS C HAPTER 13 C ONTINUED "I wished the widow knowed about it. I judged she would be proud of me for helping these rapscallions, because rapscallions and deadbeats is the kind the widow and good people takes the most interest in" (Twain 68). Analysis: Even though he has been away from her for months, Huck is still thinking about the widow and what would make her happy. He still has a hint of society inside him influencing what he does. Anna Hartmann

22 R ISHABH - THEMES Self value outweighs monetary value. Many people believe that money is the way to success "Yes; en I's rich now, come to look at it. I owns myself, en I's wuth eight hund'd dollars (Twain 42) Poor runaway slave o Acknowledges his value positively

23 R ISHABH - THEMES Addiction to money causes people to be inhumane Three robbers on boat o They kill one who tried to kill others for money Robbers steal money in the first place Huck had to leave in the first place due to money

24 R ISHABH - THEMES Communication is the key to success Huck Finn goes back into town Immediately informs Jim who "asked no questions; he never said a word" (Twain 56). Effective communication skills is necessary especially in this situation o One person speaks, another listens trusting him/her

25 Q UESTIONS FOR PEERS N ATALIE 1.) Based on the background given of Huck and Jim, the readers know these two characters are different and similar, so do you think these two boys will get along better or worse in the future? 2.) Though Huck is a very racist character, in these chapters he lets an African American man become better friends with him; why do you feel he is letting this is happening?
