The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn

purposeful contrast of Tom and Huck's lies

Need help. Please suggest an approach to a short essay regarding the contrast of Huck's and Tom's lies. I've been out of school for 40 years and even had to look up the proper definition of contrast. Thanks. Old guy.

Tom lies out of his wild imagination, to have fun. Huck lies to survive.

Tom's lies are outlandish. Huck's are believable. The story about Dad having smallpox in the raft is a doozie, and it works!
