Huck Finn Rite Of Passage Analysis

243 Words1 Page
The turning point in this book is when Huck makes a conscience decision to help Jim escape no matter what herm that would be putting himself into. This is significant because before this point, Huck felt good for helping Jim but internally he still had the conflict of what was the right thing to do by society’s standards and buy his own. This was the first time that he looked straight into the face of society and turned down its hold on him. It is slight ironic because really Huck had already made that decision a few times over subconsciously like when Huck first ran into Jim on the island. There he choose to help Jim with no questions asked, so I doubted that he would ever have turned Jim in anyways. The book documents Huck’s rite of passage
