Imagine taking a great and adventurous trip along the Mississippi just a few years after the great Civil War Well that is a voyage that young Huck Finn took in The Adventures of Tom Sawyer written by Mark Twain In this book many aspects of Huck and his civilization or lack-there-of are brought up for discussion As the reader progresses through the story he or she will soon discover that it is not Huck whose civilization should be up for question but Paps the dukes and kings and Toms should be analyzed furthermoreAs the reader opens to book they are soon to realize Paps barbarism Pap is Hucks father but his attitude towards life is atrocious Pap believes that he is significantly sophisticated for the simple reason that he is a white land-owning male During the year 1876 when Huck Finn was published anyone owning land was considered civilized because they had the money to do so Although this may have been true for many people Pap is different Pap is an alcoholic that is constantly trying to steal Hucks money in order to avoid sobriety Huck has six thousand dollars saved up that Judge Thatcher is conserving for Huck Pap is constantly reinforcing the idea that Huck should give every cent of his money to his father Every so often Huck will maintain a meager sum to enable Pap to buy alcohol When Pap is angry because of his lack of money he tends to threaten Huck and beat him Pap is also selfish He believes that Huck should not be more educated than he because Pap feels as though children should not be better than their elders This element is evidently depicted when Tom reveals Paps recent threatening remark I reckoned he was gone he come back and put his head in again and told me to mind about that school because he was going to lay for me and lick me
