Pap is a free man who takes it for granted especially when he takes his anger on African Americans and his own son. He isn’t well educated but this quote by Huck is a hint towards Paps good side. “For what you want, above all things, on a raft, is for everybody to be satisfied, and feel right and kind towards others”. Huck never had that great of an education so how is this coming from his mouth. His dad must’ve told him about these things, since Pap has made many mistakes in life he has a good side to himself.
Evidence in the text states,” I took two extra clothes press and hurried upstairs to watch over Mother...I so wanted to touch her...I smoothed her hair…’I’m here’...’Be still’...I sponged her face clean.” Matilda was raised by her strict mother who enforced obedience. She always listened and did what she was to
The answer to this question lies on page 205-206 of the book. On these pages, Walter says,”Lets clear out”... “let 's get going boys (Lee 205).” In this quote, we can see that Walter leads the crowd away after being embarrassed by an elementary school girl. If Walter truly believed in the mobs values, he would not have been shut down so easily. Therefore, Walter was lying that he truly wanted to be in the mob. Thus, walter Cunningham was lying to avoid criticism.

Should she "baby" him and prevent him from fighting, or should she encourage him to fight and "stand up like a man"? The story can be disputed in two parts. In the first part, we hear about a family that hungers, and in the second part we hear about how Mrs. Wright gets a job and gives one of the sons the mission to be the head of the family. She was left alone to raise her children on her own. They had no food and no money, for this reason, she made her son do something he wasn't prepared for.
With a little work, we succeeded in getting him into the back of the pickup truck. Wyatt threw a tarp over him, we got in the cab, and we started off, my brain full of anxiety. Heracles, though, didn’t seem to like the back of the truck that much. Somehow, he managed to get out from under the tarp; with a bound, he had jumped from the truck to the parking lot. Something tripped in Wyatt right then; to this day, I’m not sure what it was.
Walter said in an argument with his mother about her buying the house, "You run our lives like you want to. It was your money and you did what you wanted with it. So what you need for me to say it was all right for? (Bitterly, to hurt her as deeply as he knows is possible) So you butchered up a dream of mine-you-who always talking ‘bout your children’s dreams.” Due to Walter’s tone and word choice in the story, it is easy for readers to observe that Walter dedicates himself to his dream; when the dream does not turn out the way that Walter wanted it to, he becomes angry and feels as if nobody cares for what he wants in life.
