Feelings and Attitudes
In the beginning of Chapter 11, Huck hurries back to the Island and tells Jim they must leave. They quickly pack their things and slowly ride out on a raft they found when the river flooded before.
Jim and I were lucky to escape, however this incident reminded us that even though we?re on the river, it didn?t mean that we were safe from our problems that we left with leaving home. The violence, cruelty, civilization and all that. When I try to be like Tom, there?s trouble all around me, but when I am myself, things seem to turn out all right; this is because I seek to interpret and react to experience in a practical manner.
Jim sees the foolishness of many of Huck?s attempts but he never hold Huck back, and this reminds us that Jim is in an extreme weak position as an escaped slave, so he needs to try and trust Huck?s directions. He does disagree with some of Huck?s foolish plans but then finally gives in as he wants to ESCAPE, and doesn?t want to be caught and return to his past owner. And since Huck is a free, white child who could at any time turn Jim in, he is careful. Even though that particular idea doesn?t cross the mind of Huck, it is still in Jim?s mind and this shows us that Jim is constantly in fear as an escaped or escaping slave.
