Mood Essay

By emoscremo Nov 21, 2005 373 Words
"The Adventure of Huckleberry Finn" and "The Mesmerizer" have many similarities. They are both set in the same time period. Also in both of the stories the main characters are young, determined and adventurous. In both stories the main characters convince someone in order to try to get something accomplished without being caught. That leads to the moods of the stories to be quite similar. One of the similar moods of the stories is determination. In "The Mezmerizer", the main character, Mark Twain, was very determined to become a person in the hypnotist show. That determination lead to him not just being in that show but being the star of the show. In "Huckleberry Finn", Tom was so determined to get Jim to do and have some outrageous things, in hopes that going to the extreme would be beneficial to Jim. "But you bet he'll have on before he goes out of this-because he's going out right, and there ain't going to be no flaws in his record (Twain 246)." Jim would then agree with whatever it was that Tom tried to get him to accomplish after so much convincing. Convincing was another similar mood in the stories. Throughout "The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn" selection Tom is trying to convince Jim to do all of these outrageous things. "Jim don't act so foolish. A prisoners got to have some kind of a dumb pet, and if a rattle snake hain't ever been tried, why, there's more glory to be gained in your being the first to ever try it than any other way you could ever think of to save your life (Twain 249)." Jim isn't good at telling Tom no, so he always just agrees with Tom, even if it might not be safe. Throughout the story "The Mezmerizer," the main character, Mark Twain, tries to convince the audience that he is hypnotized. He takes a risk doing this though because if he got caught lying it would be all over for him. "The glory which is built upon a lie becomes a most unpleasant encumbrance (Twain 536)." Tom does a pretty good job because everyone including his own mom believes him.
