  • Loyalty
  • Lies and Cons

  • Superstitions and Folk Beliefs
  • At one point in the novel Huck thought about turning Jim in. He then realized that Jim was his friend and a person, and Huck couldn't do that to him.
  • The Mississippi
  • The Duke and King have a number of lies and cons throughout the story, but so does Huck. Most of Huck's lies are to slave hunters. He realizes that telling a lie can actually be a good thing depending on its purpose.
  • Trust
  • Jim has very many superstitions throughout the book. Huck thinks that they are silly at first but eventually starts to appreciate them.
  • The Mississippi River was a symbol of freedom for Huck and Jim. They don't have to answer to anyone and it carries them away from the ones trying to get them.
  • Jim goes off with Huck and puts all of his trust in him. He knows that Huck could have turned him in at any point but he didn't.
