The American Flag stands for Freedom. It is a symbol to everyone
This is a photo of Huck and Jim. They represent freedom in this picture because they are laying outside, relaxed and worry free.
Freedom can be seen everywhere in this novel. Huck does not understand the concept of freedom himself though, until he meets Jim. Their relationship is tried and strained a few times, because Huck was raised thinking that not everyone had the same freedom. Once he and Jim grew closer, Huck saw that freedom was to be equal for everyone. He began to risk his own life to help better Jims, because Jim was still learning just exactly what freedom was. Jim told Huck ' it made me feel all over trembly and feverish to be so close to freedom'.?,(p. 87) and later on, when they are on the verge of freedom, Huck says to Jim''NOW, old Jim, you're a free man again, and I bet you won't ever be a slave no more.' ( p. 274),Before he met Jim though, Huck himself represented freedom. Right from the beginning of the book, when the widow Douglas attempts to civilize him, Huck expresses his hatred, and how it made him feel cramped. He said ??'but it was rough living in a house all the time..and so when I couldn't stand it no longer, I lit out (p. 1) This book's chapters were crammed full of evidence of freedom.
