Mark Twain wrote of a boy by the name of Huck Finn This boy was introduced into the story as a boy with neither morals nor a conscience Huck is a flat out liar He lies about anything and everything even when he doesnt have to He is also a trouble maker sneaking out at night and worrying the widow playing tricks on people Huck is a wild child But by the end of the story he has changed Huck is still a liar a trouble maker and a wild child But he is also in some ways a man Furthermore Huck has developed morals and a conscience Huck went from a little disobedient child to a man with good morals At the end of the story there was a goodness in him that can be felt by the reader Perhaps that goodness was always in him and it just took this entire adventure to bring it out of him Hucks adventure begins with pap stealing him away from the widow Huck later escapes and fakes his own death He didnt care about what other people felt when he died He didnt care about the grief he probably caused the widow when she heard that he died All he wanted to do was get away an act of selfishness Instead of faking his own death and telling the widow hes all right he just leaves all because he doesnt want to be civilized But Huck can hardly be blamed for his actions although the actions could have been done more elegantly That is how Twain chooses to start the story making the reader think Huck is a resourceful yet a bit self-centered Later Huck meets Jim and from that point on the goodness in Huck is brought out more and more The first example of his kindness is when he realizes there are men headed for Jacksons Island looking for Jim Huck hurries back
