"Quotes" Chapter 11 "'The nigger run off the very night Huck Finn was killed. So there's a reward out for him-three hundred dollars. And there's a reward out for old Finn, too-two hundred dollars'" (Twain, 51). Analysis: This quote shows that back then a black person was worth more than a white person. This is important because no one respected or liked black people back then.
"Quotes" Chapter 11 "Jim never asked no questions, he never said a word; but the way he worked for the next half an hour showed about how he was scared." Analysis: This quote shows that even though Jim had no idea what was going on and what was going to happen he had an idea and he knew it was bad. This shows all the terror the blacks had to live with and think about all the time.
"Quotes" Chapter 12 "'I doan' want to go fool'n' 'long er no wrack. We's doin' blame' well, en we better let blame' well alone, as de good book says. Like as not dey's a watchman on dat wrack.'" Analysis: This quote shows that Jim does not want to go on the boat and that he is scared to. He is also saying that there might be people on the boat and that they could get in toruble. Maybe Jim is being the smart one here.
"Quotes" Chapter 12 "I couldn't see them, but I could tell where they was by the whisky they'd be having. I was glad I didn't drink whisky" (Twain, 62). Analysis: This quote reinforces the fact that Huck doesn't want to drink any alcohol because he doesn't want to end up like his dad.
"Quotes" Chapter 13 "I wished the widow knowed about it. I judged she would be proud of me for helping these rapscallion and deadbeats is the kind the widow and good people takes the most interest in" (Twain, 68). Analysis: This quote shows that he is thinking a little bit more highly of himself because he knew the widow would be proud. This is an important step for him because he thinks he's an idiot but by doing this and saying it makes him think better about himself.
Themes Curiosity can take one on many adventures and can have many twists and turns. Ex. When Huck explored the steam boat out of curiosity and found three gang members on it with loot. Lying never helps anyone in any situation, and more often than not leads to a more complicated situation. Ex. Huck lies to the new woman in St. Petersburg about being a girl. He couldn't remember the name he made up for himself.
Questions? What do you think would have happened if huck listened to Jim and they did not explore the steam boat? Why? If the woman in St. Petersburg figured out who Huck really was, what do you think might have happened to Huck and Jim?
