Unformatted text preview: Huckleberry​ ​Jim Jim​ ​is​ ​a​ ​slave​ ​who​ ​ran​ ​away​ ​because​ ​he​ ​didn’t​ ​want​ ​to​ ​be​ ​sold​ ​up​ ​to​ ​new​ ​orleans​ ​and​ ​was living​ ​by​ ​himself​ ​on​ ​a​ ​island​ ​in​ ​the​ ​middle​ ​of​ ​the​ ​Mississippi​ ​river​ ​and​ ​is​ ​found​ ​by​ ​a​ ​boy​ ​named Huck​ ​who​ ​faked​ ​his​ ​death​ ​to​ ​escape​ ​his​ ​father,​ ​the​ ​chaos​ ​and​ ​the​ ​rules​ ​of​ ​the​ ​world​ ​and​ ​then Huck​ ​goes​ ​back​ ​into​ ​town​ ​dressed​ ​up​ ​as​ ​a​ ​girl​ ​so​ ​he​ ​wouldn’t​ ​be​ ​recognized​ ​and​ ​he​ ​finds​ ​out​ ​that the​ ​woman​ ​he​ ​is​ ​talking​ ​to​ ​sent​ ​her​ ​husband​ ​to​ ​the​ ​island​ ​because​ ​she​ ​had​ ​suspicions​ ​that​ ​Jim was​ ​on​ ​the​ ​island​ ​and​ ​that​ ​he​ ​had​ ​murdered​ ​Huck​ ​and​ ​then​ ​she​ ​figures​ ​out​ ​that​ ​Huck​ ​is​ ​a​ ​boy pretending​ ​to​ ​be​ ​a​ ​girl​ ​ ​then​ ​he​ ​leaves​ ​and​ ​runs​ ​back​ ​to​ ​the​ ​island​ ​and​ ​he​ ​and​ ​Jim​ ​packed​ ​their things​ ​as​ ​fast​ ​as​ ​they​ ​can​ ​so​ ​they​ ​won’t​ ​be​ ​caught​ ​and​ ​huck​ ​can​ ​tell​ ​how​ ​scared​ ​he​ ​was​ ​from​ ​the way​ ​he​ ​works​ ​and​ ​you​ ​know​ ​this​ ​from​ ​when​ ​he​ ​says​ ​“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.” so​ ​they​ ​left​ ​and​ ​started​ ​their​ ​adventure​ ​on​ ​the​ ​Mississippi​ ​river. During​ ​Huck​ ​and​ ​Jim’s​ ​adventure​ ​they​ ​came​ ​across​ ​two​ ​con​ ​artists​ ​who​ ​claimed​ ​to​ ​be​ ​a duke​ ​and​ ​king,​ ​during​ ​the​ ​time​ ​the​ ​duke​ ​and​ ​king​ ​were​ ​with​ ​Jim​ ​and​ ​Huck​ ​they​ ​completely​ ​took advantage​ ​of​ ​them​ ​and​ ​had​ ​them​ ​put​ ​on​ ​a​ ​show​ ​in​ ​arkansas​ ​that​ ​made​ ​the​ ​people​ ​in​ ​the​ ​town really​ ​mad​ ​and​ ​the​ ​third​ ​and​ ​final​ ​night​ ​everyone​ ​threw​ ​tomatoes​ ​at​ ​them​ ​so​ ​the​ ​king​ ​and​ ​the duke​ ​almost​ ​got​ ​them​ ​in​ ​a​ ​lot​ ​of​ ​trouble.​ ​Jim​ ​was​ ​very​ ​suspicious​ ​of​ ​the​ ​king​ ​and​ ​the​ ​duke​ ​even though​ ​Huck​ ​wasn’t​ ​suspicious,​ ​Jim​ ​underestimates​ ​himself​ ​but​ ​he​ ​is​ ​actually​ ​pretty​ ​clever​ ​Jim​ ​is also​ ​superstitious.​ ​Also​ ​during​ ​their​ ​adventures​ ​Jim​ ​and​ ​Huck​ ​get​ ​separated​ ​in​ ​the​ ​fog​ ​on​ ​the river​ ​and​ ​Huck​ ​tries​ ​to​ ​find​ ​him​ ​but​ ​Jim​ ​doesn’t​ ​do​ ​what​ ​you​ ​are​ ​suppose​ ​to​ ​do​ ​in​ ​the​ ​fog​ ​when you​ ​get​ ​separated​ ​in​ ​the​ ​fog​ ​which​ ​is​ ​to​ ​band​ ​pans​ ​but​ ​later​ ​he​ ​finds​ ​out​ ​that​ ​Jim​ ​didn’t​ ​bang​ ​pans because​ ​he​ ​didn’t​ ​want​ ​to​ ​get​ ​caught​ ​and​ ​when​ Huck​ ​finds​ ​Jim​ ​he​ ​is​ ​asleep​ ​and​ ​when​ ​he​ ​wakes up​ ​Huck​ ​tells​ ​him​ ​the​ ​whole​ ​thing​ ​was​ ​a​ ​dream​ ​but​ ​you​ ​can​ ​tell​ ​that​ ​Jim​ ​knows​ ​it​ ​wasn’t​ ​a dream. In​ ​the​ ​beginning​ ​Huck​ ​thinks​ ​Jim​ ​is​ ​just​ ​a​ ​slave,​ ​property​ ​because​ ​that​ ​is​ ​what​ ​he​ ​has always​ ​been​ ​taught​ ​ ​but​ ​as​ ​the​ ​book​ ​continues​ ​he​ ​starts​ ​to​ ​realize​ ​that​ ​Jim​ ​is​ ​a​ ​person​ ​to​ ​not​ ​just​ ​a piece​ ​of​ ​property​ ​that​ ​you​ ​can​ ​sell,​ ​buy​ ​,and​ ​trade,​ ​Huck​ ​starts​ ​off​ ​thinking​ ​it​ ​isn’t​ ​natural​ ​the way​ ​that​ ​Jim​ ​cares​ ​about​ ​his​ ​wife​ ​and​ ​children​ ​but​ ​as​ ​the​ ​book​ ​continues​ ​Huck​ ​sees​ ​Jim​ ​as​ ​a person​ ​more​ ​and​ ​more​ ​and​ ​even​ ​as​ ​a​ ​father​ ​figure​ ​and​ ​by​ ​the​ ​end​ ​of​ ​the​ ​book​ ​Jim​ ​is​ ​a​ ​freedman and​ ​Huck​ ​sees​ ​him​ ​as​ ​a​ ​person​ ​but​ ​jim​ ​still​ ​isn’t​ ​completely​ ​happy​ ​because​ ​his​ ​wife​ ​and​ ​children are​ ​still​ ​in​ ​slavery​ ​and​ ​he​ ​doesn't​ ​have​ ​enough​ ​money​ ​to​ ​buy​ ​them​ ​back.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
