Mark Twain’s The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn In Mark Twain’s The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, Huck is a person to be admired. His caring attitudes and blunt honesty prove that he is a great person. Although Huck can be seen lying, cheating and stealing, he does these things out of necessity and as a result of his poor upbringing. These negative attributes don’t affect his overall high character. Huck Finn has many great aspects, but he is fallible and capable of doing wrong.
He chooses to save Jim out of slavery, something that was illegal during the time. Huck did not care that he went against society to help Jim find freedom because in his heart he felt that it was morally right. Brotherhood plays a big role in the way we interact with each other, it is something inscribed into everybodies DNA. While Universal Brotherhood can be positive, it can also be negative and corrupted from the inside. “Even a superficial investigation, however, leads us into a labyrinth of thought in which there is no logical escape from the conclusion that somehow a unity exists between all human being,” said Neresheimer.
So how could this possibly be something negative or an act of weakness? The answer lies in that it’s not a bad thing and in the story the reader comes across many examples of both males and females being sentimental towards others. For instance, Mr. Temple, who is Charlotte’s father, is indeed a person that has a good heart and he is described as a sentimental or benevolent person because of the way he treats others in the sense that: “he had a heart open to every generous feeling of humanity, and a hand ready to dispense to those who wanted part of the blessings he enjoyed himself” . What this means is that, not only is Mr. Temple a man, but he is also capable of feeling others pain like if it were his own and because of him being this way, he is indeed a moral person because he cares about others and does not think only about himself. A perfect example of him being benevolent or sentimental is when he helps Mr. Eldridge (who ends up being Charlotte’s grandfather); pay his debt without expecting anything in return.
In this story, Singer is showing that good triumphs over evil. The author shows Gimpel's good side, by showing how caring and kind he is to people no matter what way he is treated by them. Gimpel just believes if he goes with the flow of things it would be a lot easier than dealing with the townspeople. "However, I resolved that I would always believe what I was told. What's the good of not believing?
This whole scenario with Stradlater shows that Holden regards honesty in people, which is very ironic due to some of Holden’s actions throughout the book.

By More dying, he proved a point to himself and the public. That he was honorable and not going to succumb to the deceitful thinking of Cromwell and the King. “I have not disobeyed my sovereign. I truly believe no man in England is safer than myself.” (pg. 40) This clearly demonstrates the fact that More knew what he was on about and wasn’t going to go against his beliefs for the sake of living.
Huck also behaves from a correct moral sense in his relationships. (Adventures) Huck takes issue in the Duke and the Kings deceit but only when he develops a relationship with the person who is affected. For example, when they steal Mary Jane’s inheritance, Huck gives her what is rightfully hers because he feels bad, but he does not seem to be bothered when the Duke and King perform “The Royal Nonesuch” for a town of people that he has no connection with.. Twain tries to show that the correct thing is not always the traditional thing through Huck befriending Jim. Due to Huck’s upbringing, he cannot help but feel wicked living with Jim but he finds peace with it.
He was respected, admired, and liked by others. For example, Dobbs would not carry out his plot to kill Colonel Cathcart unless Yossarian approved. Milo admired Yossarian and asked him for business advice. The chaplain also liked Yossarian enough no to speak up when he recognized a "Washington Irving" forgery as Yossarian's. In many ways, Yossarian was also a very moral person.
One of the recurring themes throughout The Hobbit is Tolkien’s manifestation of morality through his inherently good and evil characters. Although, some characters narrowly balance the line of good and evil through portraying characteristics such as greed, the hobbits represent naturally altruistic and peaceful characters. The protagonist Bilbo’s rational nature and willingness to compromise through his selfless transfer of the Arkenstone to Bard and the Elvenking further highlights Tolkien’s portrayal of a simple and sensible twentieth century Englishmen in a fantastical setting. Even though he risks his promised sum of the treasures, Bilbo chooses to work as a peacekeeper to opt for a more sensible way of solving a problem. Therefore, the dialogue between Bilbo, Bard, and the Elevenking is a manifestation by Tolkien of the moral high ground of hobbits and their rational and peacekeeping nature, which impresses the men and elves to award their trust and honor to the hobbit.
