Freedom How far would one go to be free What does it really mean to be free It comes in many different ways and forms In The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain both main characters Huck and Jim seek freedom in their own ways As Huck and Jim continue down the river they see the raft as homebase and feel free while on it While Huck stays with the feuding Grangerfords and Jim lays low in the swampTwain 72-86 both were happy to get back on the raft Huck says that other places do seem so cramped up and smothery but on a raft you dont Twain 88 In other words when they leave the raft they express a behavior free from the strictures if society Poupard 350 As Huck and Jim proceed down the river they meet up with the Duke and the King When the two come aboard with Huck and Jim the royalty wear away their welcome quickly and Huck plans to ditch them As soon as Huck and Jim start down the river without them Huck says that it did seem so good to be free and all by ourselves on the big river and nobody to bother us Twain 154-55 To put it another way Duke and the King symbolize society on the raft The two corrupt Jim and Hucks ease and freedom they experience on the raft thus Huck will do almost anything possible to lose them Just like Jim and Huck feel free on the raft Huck starts to feel free from society Huck always was partially free from society such as not attending church not wearing nice clothes and breaking rules Twain 31 His main turning point is when he does something totally immoral to society in that time he does not turn in Jim when he though he should Instead he says All right then Ill go to hell Twain
