CONFLICT

Protagonist

The protagonist of the novel is Huck Finn, a boy of about 12 years, who must make a difficult decision about whether or not to turn in Jim, a runaway slave, who becomes a friend to him.

Antagonist

Huck’s antagonist is the society and its customs that allow slavery to exist, that treat the Negro people as second class citizens, and that live in hypocrisy.


Climax

The climax occurs when Huck decides that he must stand by Jim at any cost.

Outcome

The outcome of the novel is comic with Huck deciding to go against the hypocritical society and protect his friend. Even when Jim is sold back into slavery by the Duke and Dauphin, Huck is determined to find him and free him again.
