It is ironic because we, as the readers know that Huck is actually doing the right thing in freeing Jim and that slavery is a wrong act. Huck 's maturity progresses throughout the novel to this moment. At the beginning of the novel, he thought that nothing was wrong with slavery and it was okay to own slaves , but he has grown morally to oppose slavery and be willing to risk his own life for a black man who has protected him. 3.When the duke and the king sell Jim, that shows how bad they are and how they have the ability to cruelly take advantage of every situation they are in.

Twain does his best to deal with the conflict between society and the individual. Huck does not want to abide by society’s laws and does not want to conform in Mark Twain’s, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn.

Although Huck tries to see Jim as a friend and fatherly-figure, society's beliefs don't allow him to see Jim as anything but a slave.
The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain, it is a very controversial book and rightfully so, It contains many themes that aren't often discussed nowadays, including racism and the harmful effects of society.

One of the most present themes in the story deals with racism and the treatment of African-Americans. The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn was set in a time and place when slavery was a part of life, and the attitude of white characters towards black characters reflects this; even more open-minded characters like protagonist Huck Finn seem to regard African-Americans as part of an inferior species.
