Week 16-17 Storyboard Progress
This storyboard does not have a description.
In this scene, Huck has just found Jim on the island. Jim told Huck that he ran away, but only after getting Huck to promise he would never tell anyone. While Huck is not above lying, his morals would never allow him to fail Jim on something as important as this.
This is a rather funny scene, where Jim and Huck decide that they are allowed to 'borrow" (steal) food, as long as they don't take a few kinds of fruit. It shows that while morals are important, sometimes they can be ignored, if it's a matter of life or death.
In the very first scene of the book, Huck is talked about how the widow was trying to civilize him, and how hard it was for him. Now on page 13, he talks about how he has persevered, how he's going to school and it is easier for him to act civilized.
In this scene, Tom decides it is not right to steal from the girls. He comes up with a plan to steal the money from the duke and king, and hide it so that they can't get away with it.
This scene sums up a lot of the moral conflicts that Huck has throughout the book. Jim has been sold, and Huck realizes that he could write to Miss Watson, tell her where Jim is, and free himself of all guilt. Instead he decides he'll just "go to hell", not send the letter and do all he can to help Jim.
In this scene, Huck and Tom figure out where Jim is being held, and they decide to get him out. Huck is surprised that Tom is willing to help steal a slave, even though he has been brought up well.
