The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn

Huck Finn Help

In chapter 25 Huck is sickened by the way the king tells his story full of tears and flapdoodle and manipulates the emotions of the townspeople. Immediately afterward, someone leads the crowd in singing the doxology. What is Hucks reaction to this? How does Twain use this incident to further reveal the character of the King?

The entire situation leaves Huck feeling disgusted and ashamed of the human race. He works, once they have stolen the money, to manipulate the situation so that the King and the Duke are exposed for the frauds that they are.
