Mark Twain’s novel

The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, illustrates the theme of friendship through two characters; Huck and Jim, who are both runaways from society. While initially they had nothing to do with each other, over time a friendship forms and strengthens as they both go on adventures as they head towards freedom. In their initial meeting, Huck sees Jim as nothing more than Miss Watson’s slave. Huck had two places he could consider home; one with his abusive father and one with Widow Douglas, who was constantly trying to civilize him. On the other hand, Jim had overheard Miss Watson, who was his owner, talking about selling him to the South.

Furthermore, when both runaway and meet again, Huck is excited because he will no longer be alone. However, when Jim tells him that he had run away from Miss Watson, he gets very upset because he promised to not say anything which would make him an accomplice. He knows that Jim was a runaway slave and not saying anything to anyone would be helping him escape and therefore would make him guilty of helping a runaway slave escape to freedom, which was considered a terrible crime.  Hucks conscience and belief of what was morally right often interfered his friendship with Jim since he was a runaway slave. The closer that Jim got to pay someone to take online class for me reddit, the more guilty Huck felt for helping him.

As they head towards Cairo, Jim tells Huck about his daughter and his wife and how he plans to either buy them or steal them and it makes Huck feel terrible. He asks, “how much should i pay someone to take my online class” (Twain 68). Huck begins to remember everything that Miss Watson did for him such as teaching him manners and it makes him feel “mean and miserable” knowing that he is doing the complete opposite for her. However, Huck also had the mindset of getting him to be free under whatever condition, even if he felt guilty for it. He knew that if he did what he needed to do to get Jim to escape he’d be going to hell. He wrote a letter for Miss Watson, in it he writes about Jim. As he does this, he begins to remember all of the adventures that they had gone through and the time they shared, Huck prays fro forgiveness but it doesn't seem to help. He questions whether he should do the right thing and send the letter and face consequences or free Jim and go to hell for doing it.

He then states, “All right, then, I’ll go to hell” (Twain 164). His conscience again interferes his friendship with Jim but realizes that their friendship is worth everything even if it means for him to “go to hell”. Similar to this realization, both Huck ad Jim come to many realizations that help both of them grow individually and as friends.  Huck goes through massive growth, one that changes his values and mindset. Although Hucks conscience plays a big role in his values, Huck learns true friendship with Jim. He begins to treat Jim more as a friend rather than a property. Furthermore, Huck begins to mature as he learns that there is more to life besides himself.
