He is not capable of always living to the fullest and having gratitude for what gifts he has, such as academics.
This mixed with his jealousy, and caused him to impulsively shake the tree limb that Phineas was standing on, making him fall and shatter his leg. At the trial, Gene refused to admit to causing Finny’s accident, proving that he cared more about his reputation than owning up to his
Throughout Mark Twain’s The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, the river is clearly a positive symbol that protects Jim and Huck from society. However, some scholars are under the impression that the river is intended to be a negative symbol that is aggressive towards Jim and Huck. The river brings trouble to Jim and Huck, causing them to loss the little freedom they had on the river. Dr. David Sloane, who is a professor of English and education at the University of New Haven, argues in his article “Huck’s Moral Reasoning as Heroism” from Bloom’s Major Literary Characters: Huck Finn that the pattern of the river acting as freedom or safekeeping from society is repeated, only to be eradicated by the Duke and the Dauphin (134).

This is mainly shown when Gene feels guilty about Finny, since Gene broke his leg. The first time Gene feels guilty about what he did is when Phineas first put in the hospital after Gene jounced the limb. Once the doctor came out and explain Finny's condition to Gene, he says Finny wants to talk to Gene. Gene then thinks, “Finny would say nothing behind my back, he would accuse me face to face.” (64) Gene knew that Finny would be mad at him after the tree incident. He expected this because he knew that it was true what he did.

Noah and Jude hardly talked and their Father was always going out for walks, "clearing his head." The Mother's death was sudden and unexpected, as she was killed in a car accident, which was another big factor that caused the twins to lose touch, as neither of them were expecting it in any way. I know that if I experienced something so sudden and life changing like that, it would affect me dramatically, maybe even causing me to shut people out, like Jude and Noah did to most people. The guilt that ensued after the Mum's death also majorly affected the twins. Each thought that they had caused their Mums death in different ways, whether it was something they said or something they did the last time they saw her.
Jeffery, however, gave up once he found that his master would not purchase Dorcas due to the fact that she was being sold alongside four other family members.
