Adventures Of Huck Finn
Compare and contrast the personalities of Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn.

Huckleberry Finn and Tom Sawyer are two friends with very different
personalities, each bringing their own unique characteristics into this comical
relationship. Tom and Huck are two adventurous souls but in very opposing ways.

Huck’s idea of adventure is to escape from society, their beliefs and all of
their conformities, but he does it in a way that is level-headed and sensible.

Tom, on the other hand, is more likely to make up an adventure based on
something he had read in a book and not really trying to escape anything. All of
his ideas and schemes come from books, unlike Huck, who has actually lived the
fantasies Tom has imagined. The two are alike in one way though. They both have
a very strong sense of adventure. I think this one trait along with their
similar ages is what makes them friends. Huck seems to be the kind of person
that Tom would want to be friends with because of his willingness to make other
people happy. Tom lives out his escapades with no regard for the pain and
suffering it causes others. Huck, on the other hand, just wants things done and
done right but he gives into Tom’s wild ideas and extravagant plans, which Tom
loves. Tom and Huck are two interesting yet different characters. It is for
these reasons that they have become an American literary classic.
