The Controversial Conclusión

Analyzing Literature
1- After everything is cleared up, Tom announces that Jim was already free and they explain everything to aunt Sally. Huck decides to leave and seek his "freedom" by living in Indian territory, so he doesn´ t want to stay with aunt Sally. I think that Huck's decision to head off into new territory reemphasizes his dislike of the civilizedsociety.
2- I think that Huck distrusts the morals and precepts of the society that treats him as an outcast and fails to protect him from abuse. His experiences in society and his growing relationship with Jim, lead Huck to question many of the teachings that he has received, especially important themes like slavery and race. I can see that when, in a moment in the book, he has to choose to“go to hell” or to follow the rules and teachings he has been taught. At the end he decides to follow his heart and he comes to his own conclusions about the world around him in spite of the “civilized” society and their rules. We can see this nowadays too, but he have to know that we are all the same, with the same rights it doesn´t matter the colour of skin, the way we look or the way we act.
3-Among the differences between Tom and Huck we can see that throughout the tale, Tom is often the leader while Huck is just a follower. It doesn't matter that Tom's ideas are ridiculous and extravagant, and Huck's are simple and practical, together they always proceed with Tom's imaginative plans. In contrast to Tom's great imagination and creativity, Huck is humorless and literal minded. Huckactually lives out the fantasies Tom can only imagine. So whereas Tom puts great stock in literary models, Huck is as skeptical of these as he is of religion. In both realms, Huck refuses to accept much on faith.  Besides Tom Sawyer, already civilized, follows the values and beliefs of society while Huck Finn, rejects the philosophy of political beliefs for the fear of becoming civilized. He usuallyruns away at the first notion of him becoming "sivilized." Huck is able to function in any society with the help of his adaptability and survival skills. I think that of the two, Huck will always be the survivor in life, while Tom will apply everything that he has read in books but he doesn´t have an idea about the real world outside.We can see that Tom can afford to accept the nonsense of societyand romantic literature, but Huck cannot. Huck’s alienation from the “civilization” of the adult world is a bit starker and sadder, because of his bad experiences. Between the similarities, we could say that both of them have the ability to put the knowledge they obtain into their every day lives. They are two adventurous souls in search of fresh and exhilarating escapades. They both areteenager; they like adventures and they delight in the dirty language and pranks that the adult world condemns.

Personal Response
1- I think that Huck will have a nice future because he will be free to do whatever he wants and he loves that. Perhaps he will have an adventurous life and experiences similar to those he lived in the book. I think that he will be happy because that is all he wantedsince the beginning of the story. He doesn´t feel that he is part of this hypocritical society and I understand him.
2- I got disappointed about the ending of the story because it is like the whole adventure that Huck shares with Jim seem to be pointless and nonsense. Besides from the beginning Huck is the main character and does everything his own way. All the plans for the escape arebefitting of Huckleberry's character. His schemes are sensible and well though out. Then, all of a sudden, Tom comes into the story and the novel becomes a replicate of the first novel-The Adventures of Tom Sawyer. Huck becomes a shadow behind Tom and his ideas, which Huck always seems to give way to because Tom is "smarter" than he is he adventure that they embarked upon was meaningless, and...
