Tom is a dreamer, and Huck is always the practical or pragmatic person. Tom Sawyer tries to change Huck, hoping to make Huck see spice caravans where there are only Sunday-school picnics. Unlike Tom, Huck's life is uncomplicated. He has no ambition, no desire to be civilized. Tom and Huck are two very different people, which is probably what makes them such good friends. Tom aspires to be Huck and Huck aspires to be Tom. They both love adventures but besides that Huck learns about respect and how to treat others while Tom doesn't care about anyone but himself. Also the widow Douglas takes Huck into her home and tries to "civilize" him. She makes him go to church and attend school. Huck longs for a life of freedom and adventure. I think Huck also finds Southern rules and social norms constricting and unfair.

Adventures of Huckleberry Finn explores themes of race and identity; what it means to be free and civilized; and the ideas of humanity and social responsibility in the changing landscape of America. A complexity exists concerning Jim's character. While some scholars point out that Jim is good-hearted and moral, and he is not unintelligent (in contrast to several of the more negatively depicted white characters), others have criticized the novel as racist, citing the use of the word "nigger" and emphasizing the stereotypically "comic" treatment of Jim's lack of education, superstition and ignorance. This argument is supported by incidents early in the novel where Huck deliberately "tricks" Jim, taking advantage of his gullibility and Jim still remains loyal to him.

hope it helps you!
