Huck Finn
1. Do you think we have lost Southern pride? How is the “Southern Honor and Bravery” different today than in Huckleberry Finn?
a. “ Among African-Americans, 72 percent see the Confederate flag as a symbol of racism, while 25 percent of whites agree.” This is the result of a CNN poll over phone in 2015.
b. Southern Honor and bravery are very different today than in the novel.
2. Why is there so much lying? Is it always wrong to lie?
a. One reason Huck lies so much is because he is simply an average little boy. Many little boys lie just to have fun and create adventures. But most of the time, his lying is useful. It is useful in running away from his father and helping set Jim free.
b. “’What did you say your name was, honey?’ ‘M—Mary Williams.’… ‘Honey, I thought you said it was Sarah when you first come in?’ ‘Oh, yes’m I did. Sarah Mary Williams. Sarah’s my ...view middle of the document...

Turn him loose! He ain't no slave; he's as free as any cretur that walks this earth!"(303)
b. He also uses the Shepardsons and Grangerfords as a satire mocking family feuds such as the Hatfields and McCoys.
c. "Well," says Buck, "a feud is this way: A man has a quarrel with another man, and kills him; then that other man's brother kills him; then the other brothers, on both sides, goes for one another; then the cousins chip in—and by and by everybody's killed off, and there ain't no more feud. But it's kind of slow, and takes a long time."(120)
4. How does Huck spiritually change through the book?
a. At the beginning of the book Huck barely lives by any moral code and is not living a very christian life or even a morally acceptable life.
b. “They talked it over, and they was going to rule me out, because they said every boy must have a family or something to kill, or else it wouldn't be fair and square for the others. Well, nobody could think of anything to do- everybody was stumped, and set still. I was most ready to cry; but all at once I thought of a way, and so I offered them Miss Watson-they could kill her”(16)
c. but in the novel Huck starts to change with the incident with the three criminals. Huck wanted to save them because it was the right thing to do and because they were human beings. By the end of the book Huck has gone through a transformation in the way he acts.
d. “I'll go to hell”(228). Huck says this when he decides to tear up the letter letting the people know where Jim was. This shows his devotion to Jim and that he has a moral code to live by.
5. Why does Mark Twain use Huckleberry Finn, a thirteen year old boy, as voice of the novel?
a. He does this so he can draw comparisons between Huck and Jim. Both have no influence on anything. Both of them are controlled and have masters. Also it shows how Huck and Jim on their own are both helpless but together can survive
b. "No! W'y, what has you lived on? But you got a gun. Oh, yes, you got a gun. Dat's good. Now you kill sumfn en I'll make up de fire."(52)
