Chapter 14 Summary

Huck and Jim now have a fortune in booty stolen off the steamboat- including cigars and boots, plenty of books and clothes. Huck reads to Jim about royalty and the royal lifestyle, including conveying to him the concept of a harem, which Jim particularly doesn't like. In the course of the discussion, they discuss the story of Solomon and the two feuding mothers. Jim basically thinks it is idiotic to cut up a child for any reason and doesn't get "the point" of the story.

Chapter 14 Analysis

This chapter really focuses on the extreme practicality and realism of Jim, which is prevalent throughout the entire book. But sometimes, Jim, too, kind of misses things, too. His repulsion at Solomon's story is hilarious.
