How does Huck’s attitude toward Jim change over the course of the novel? Discuss some incidents that illustrate the evolution of their relationship.
Huck begins with enormous disadvantages. He is orphaned and abused, often homeless, and poorly educated. What personality traits, skills, and talents help him to rise above his circumstances?
