Created with Fabric.js 1.4.5 Huck Finn Motifs pg 262 pg 211 pg. 214 pg. 276 pg 262 Tom is being cruel to Jim by lengthening his time in captivity. Tom is trying to make the escape plan a complex one, but this is only hurting Jim's chances of escaping. Tom's actions are not thoughtful towards Jim's predicament. After Jim argued about having pets, Tom replied to Jim with "don't act so foolish. A prisoner's got to have some kind of a dumb pet," (262). Huck's inner battle with himself in regards to the morality of slavery shows that Huck is actually against slavery and that he is doing the right thing by freeing Jim, although society says otherwise. After Tom got shot in the leg, Jim says "I doan' budge a step out'n dis place 'dout a doctor," (276). Twain shows the satire of Romanticism by showing how Tom is obsessed with playing by the rules of "the book." Tom's foolishness is made fun of by linking his actions to the ridiculousness of Romanticism. After asking a stranger about Jim's whereabouts, the stranger replied, "Well, I rckon! There's two hundred dollars' reward on him. It's like picking up money out'n the road," (211). After thinking about Jim's kindness on their adventure, Huck decides to not report Jim back to Miss Watson and decides to tear up the letter by saying, "All right, then, I'll go to hell," (214). Tom wants Jim to have many "pets" while he is a slave to which Jim despises. Jim states, "I doan' want no sich glory. Snake take 'n bite Jim's chin off..." (262). Because Jim is a slave, he is looked at only as money. He is seen as a big pile of money and not as a human. Even though Jim could escape to freedom and abandon Tom's pain, he still decides to help Tom and stay for a doctor, sacrificing his own life in the process.
