“In a barrel of odds and ends it is different; things get mixed up, and the juice kind of swaps around, and things go better” (Twain 1). Analysis: “Proper” society prefers everything from their people to their food separated where Huck realizes that life can “go better” when one mixes everything/everyone together.
“Living in a house and sleeping in a bed pulled on me pretty tightly mostly, but before cold weather I used to slide out and sleep in the woods sometimes, and so that was a rest to me” (Twain 14). Analysis: Despite having basic amenities, Huck still prefers to be in nature. A house and a bed make him feel cramped. He takes a break from society and is able to “rest up” when he is alone in the woods.
People need to realize that teaching is not telling and that one must try to help others understand not just know. Ex. Huck’s confusion over Heaven and Hell. People must learn to think for themselves. Ex. Tom Sawyer copies what he reads in books without knowing what he is doing.
What do you like most about Huck as a character so far? What do you like least? What does the hair-ball tell Jim about Huck’s future? How specific is the prediction? Can Jim really tell the future? (pg 16)
