An example of a child growing up in the world thinking there is only one appropriate way to do the right thing is Huck Finn. In the novel Adventures of Huckleberry Finn written by Mark Twain, Huck has a hard time realizing that in order to make himself happy, he needs to do things he was taught not to do. For example Jim and Huck meet and decide to run away together, never in a million years did Huck think he was going to help a runaway slave. Throughout his adventure, Huck realizes that everything he thought might be wrong, so he chooses what he thinks is right. Mark Twain used an emphasis on showing the difference between right and wrong in an adults point of view, and a child 's point of view.
Huck begins to become wary of such ideals that Miss Watson has imposed on him, and decided all he wanted “…was a change” (Twain 10).

When Tom showed up, Huck was already trying to free Jim, and had come up with an easier plan to free Jim from Tom’s aunt and uncle. Huck’s moral progress ends at this part of the novel, and Huck becomes influenced by how Tom acts, and reverts back to how he was before he went down the Mississippi with Jim. Instead of looking out for Jim’s best interest, Huck begins to play along with this new “adventure” and consequently toys with Jim 's life. Huck loses all the morals he had acquired in his time on the river, which not only causes the reader to dislike the character that had been created, but to feel as though the ending is an unsatisfactory closing to the
However, going back to Huck’s literal thinking, the reader sees it as no joke. But because Huck is a young boy, the reader does not seem to mind, ironically. Twain is free to explore many ideas but those ideas are seen through a young boy 's eyes and are not as threatening as they would be if seen through an older narrator. Huck gets away with things an adult narrator would never even attempt. In addition, he can question society in a way no adult would and his thoughts somehow become our
Huck matures as he explores and experiences the world. In the beginning of Jim and Huck’s relationship, Huck is immature and a trickster by putting a dead rattlesnake near Jim which leads to Jim being bitten by a rattlesnake.

Mark Twain purposely wrote this story with poor English, due to the fact that he was telling the story in the perspective of Huck Finn.
The conclusion of craziness that Callarman suggests does not withstand the concrete evidence from scientific studies and analyzation of journal entries and testimonial accounts of Chris McCandless’s end stages of life. Although Shaun Callarman is correct that Chris made many mistakes based on ignorance and not enough education, that does not make guarantee craziness.

Simple because of “deformability” he was called names and laughed at. Hop-Frog dealt with the hatred for as long as his first meeting with the King and his seven ministers. What finally set him over edge was the kings treatment to Hop-Frogs friend, Trippetta. During one of the Kings jokes of trying to get him drunk, Trippetta began begging to the King to stop because he was hurting his friend.

World War I generates a significant impact on Jake because he suffers physical and psychological trauma which causes him to have penis envy. Jake receives a telegram from Brett and reads it aloud to toy with Robert’s feelings: “Why I felt that impulse to devil him I do not know. Of course I do know.
