The Uniting of Theme and Plot in The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn In Mark Twains novel The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn Twain develops the plot into Huck and Jims adventures allowing him to weave in his criticism of society The two main characters Huck and Jim both run from social injustice and both are distrustful of the civilization around them Huck is considered an uneducated backwards boy constantly under pressure to conform to the humanized surroundings of society Jim a slave is not even considered as a real person but as property As they run from civilization and are on the river they ponder the social injustices forced upon them when they are on land These social injustices are even more evident when Huck and Jim have to make landfall and this provides Twain with the chance to satirize the socially correct injustices that Huck and Jim encounter on land The satire that Twain uses to expose the hypocrisy racism greed and injustice of society develops along with the adventures that Huck and Jim have The ugly reflection of society we see should make us question the world we live in and only the journey down the river provides us with that chance Throughout the book we see the hypocrisy of society The first character we come across with that trait is Miss Watson Miss Watson constantly corrects Huck for his unacceptable behavior but Huck doesnt understand why That is just the way with some people They get down on a thing when they dont know nothing about it 2 Later when Miss Watson tries to teach Huck about Heaven he decides against trying to go there she was going to live so as to go the good place Well I couldnt see no advantage in going where she was going so I made up my mind I wouldnt try for it 3 The comments made by Huck clearly show Miss Watson
