When he realizes that Christianity seems to offer him no personal advantage in life, he quickly rejects it as quite pointless. That night, Pap sneaks out of the new judge's house and buys some alcohol. Washington knows how to leave people wanting more. Copy to Clipboard. In many respects, this is true, and as the story continues, Nick's moral fortitude becomes more and more pronounced, but the mere fact that he has dismissed Jordan's dishonesty makes the reader wonder, at least momentarily, whether this is true. Up to about here.

An hour later, I was exhilarated, clearing my porch and its single long granite step with my new orange plastic shovel, bought cheap and shaped like a scoop and much more silkily serviceable than the cumbersome metal snow shovels of my childhood, with their sticky surfaces and noisy bent edges. Huck's relationship with food is a prominent theme throughout the novel, and during his time on Jackson's Island and working his way down river, Huck revels in and enjoys his ad hoc dining. Huck gets an old lamp and tries to find a genie, but when it fails he decides that the genies were just another of Tom's lies. To the people watching, Adams bows.

His death has, in a sense, removed him from his mortal existence and allowed him rebirth into a different, hopefully better, life. Then, from a nearby worktable, he retrieved a box of kitchen matches.

Huck is very logical and reasonable. At the same time, if you were standing very close, which you were, in this very small apartment, they were very minutely attended to, with detailed brushwork to create the surface, which was many, many layers deep.

He remarks that everyone knows dead men float face down, so this must have been a woman in man's clothing that looked like his Pap. Chapter 4 Huck spends the next three months living with the widow and getting acclimated to his new life.

However, the information is sketchy — later chapters help to round out the picture of him: who he is and where he comes from.
