Ok, but literally the majority of Huck Finn feels entirely incidental. Everyone makes Huck out to be this great advocate for social progression and “wholesomeness”, etc. but if Jim didn’t just happen to run away and stumble upon him, and make his way back to Huck several times over the course of the novel, I get the feeling that Huck wouldn’t really care. He literally decides not to inform Miss Watson of where Jim is because he figures he’s always been bad, so what’s the point in being good now? Why am I the only one in my class that seems to get this.
