Throughout the pages of The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn Huck fights with two distinct voices One is siding with popular opinion saying Huck should turn Jim in and the other is realizing the wrong in turning his friend in not viewing Jim as a slave Twain wants the reader to see the moral difficulty Huck is going through and what slavery can do to a person who is pure like Huck Huck does not think about Jims impending freedom until Jim himself starts to get excited about the idea Hucks first objection to Jim is gaining his freedom when Huck says Well I can tell you it made me all over trembly and feverish too to hear him because I begun to get it through my head that he was most free-and who was to blame for it Why me I could get that out of my consciounce no how nor no way I think that that was the popular opinion not his own Huck did not realize at this point that he was just falling other peoples values at this time Huck totally misunderstood slavery Huck does not treat Jim like a slave when they traveled together Huck treated Jim as a friend Huck saw having a slave only as owning the person Not actually being a slave to someone Therefore when he helps Jim runaway it would be like stealing His conscience is telling him that Miss Watson Jims master never did anything wrong to him and that he shouldnt be doing anything wrong to her by helping Jim escape Miss Watsons view is totally different from than Hucks perspective Huck always disliked Miss Watson but now that this society voice plays a part in Hucks judgment his views are changed Societys view allows Huck to see Jim a friend only as a slave and Miss Watson almost a foe in his young views as a dear friend
