The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn
How does Huck view of superstition evolve over the course of this chapter?
At the beginning of the chapter he's rather smug. Jim had told Huck that his touching a snakeskin was unlucky, but instead they've come upon quite a few items and $8. Huck wishes to always be so unlucky.
Then the "bad luck" started; Jim got bit by a snake, and they couldn't catch any fish.
At the end of the chapter, Huck dresses up like a girl to go back and see what's going on in town........ he's dressed like a girl and worried he'll be recognized, but he comes upon a new woman moved to town who can fill him in on everything........... he says, "Now this was lucky, because I was weakening; I was getting afraid I had come; people might know my voice and find me out. But if this woman had been in such a little town two days she could tell me all I wanted to know; so I knocked at the door, and made up my mind I wouldn't forget I was a girl."
