In The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn the opinion is expressed that society is deaf and blind to morality Mark Twain exposes a civilization filled with hate and hypocrisy ignorance and injustice all through the eyes of an impressionable youth known as Huckleberry Finn Through his adventures Huck discovers his own conscience and capacity for loyalty and friendship He plays a dangerous game filled with life-altering decisions that determine who he is as a person in the world The game Huck plays occasionally gets him into a rare moral dilemma He has to choose between violating the entire code of social religious and conventional behavior which the world has taught him and betraying the person whom he loves most in his life Hucks ailing conscience prompts him to write a letter advising Miss Watson that her slave Jim is in Mr Phelps possession After writing the letter he says I felt good and all washed clean of sin for the first time I had ever so in my life and I knowed I could pray now But I didnt do it straight off but laid the paper down and set there thinking-thinking how good it was all this happened so and how near I come to being lost and going to hell Twain This is just one instance where Huck shows promising signs of breaking free from the close-minded upbringing that has been instilled upon him Hucks adventures are a sort of right of passage to adulthood He discovers new ways of thinking acting and living that he would never have gotten to even consider if he were not exposed to them in the real world As Huck matures his values evolve from a selfish loner attitude to a loyal and dependable friend When a problem does arise for either Huck Jim or even newly found friends along the river the once self-centered ignorant young boy uses his moral judgment to do what is right Most
