FC: Unit 5: A Troubled Nation Huck Finn Scrapbook
1: "Families are like fudge mostly sweet with a few nuts." ~Author Unknown | Over view of the Era | The story takes place in Hannibal, Missouri in the 1800's. Hannibal is a small slave trade town located beside the Mississippi river. Many people are very racist and uneducated. Nearly all the residents of the town use hateful racist slang terms throughout the novel.
2: Character | Huck Finn is a young boy who is uneducated and finds happiness in mischief and trickery. He is raised in Hannibal Missouri and is used to being around slaves and is slightly racist because of the time. He is often left homeless because of his drunk abusive father "Pap."
3: It's the little things that make life beautiful. | Representations | Jim is a slave in Hannibal Missouri. Who runs away with Huck after discovering he was going to be sold and sent far away from his family. Jim is fairly educated for a slave of that time and seems very kind hearted.
4: Love/Valentines Day/Anniversary | Major Theme's | Slavery and Racism are the major theme's that I see throughout the story. Racism is scattered on nearly every page of this novel mainly because of the time and how people where raised and how uneducated they where.
5: The best thing about me is you. | Slavery is the basis for the book because Jim is a runaway slave and a young white boy (Huck) is helping him run away. They face many obstacles where Huck has to save Jim from people because Jim is a slave.
6: of 2012 | How society is reflected in literature | Society is reflected in " Ain't I a Woman" because before her speech everybody listening didn't want her to speak because she was black and thought it would destroy they're chances at equal rights for women. Once she began to speak though and came to her points the audience warmed up to her and adored her speech.
7: "The more you laugh the longer you live" | How people transform through relationships | Jim is a slave in the novel and Huck is a young white boy willing to help an outlaw salve find freedom at the beginning though Huck was a little racist and ended up turning his back on Jim when he needed him but then realized his wrongdoings and saw Jim not as a slave bu as his friend and also like a father figure.
