Hucks guardians, Widow Douglas and Miss Watson, practice Christianity. Huck and Jim on the other hand, believe in superstition: they look for signs for answers rather than God. They look for bad signs in everything; if anything bad happened to them they 're sure to have a sign that was leading to it. Though their superstitions are silly, they do have reason to believe bad things will happen to them: they live in a world where nature is dangerous and people act with hatred. Huck has a realization that the Christian “good’’ isn 't really “good”; they believe Huck will be condemned to hell for saving Jim from slavery.

The nouns ‘fiend’ and ‘Satan’ fit in the semantic field of Hell, in direct contrast to the Puritan belief and innocence he believes he has. The evocative use of plosive ‘B’ and fricative ‘S’ emphasises Sir Topas’ anger over Malvolio being an enemy to God, showing Feste’s power and elevated status over the now weakened Malvolio not only because he’s a ‘priest’ but also his newfound ability to criticise him. This depicts that Malvolio’s madness is caused by a possessed demon according to Sir Topas but the sudden comedic interjection of Sir Toby ‘Well said, Master Parson’ reminds the audience that this is all a prank (deception) and the main aim is humiliation. Secondly, the aggressive torment of Malvolio continues with Feste’s
