Superstitions in Huckleberry Finn
In the novel The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain,
there is a lot of superstition. Some examples of superstition in the
novel are Huck killing a spider which is bad luck, the hair-ball used
to tell fortunes, and the rattle-snake skin Huck touches that brings
Huck and Jim good and bad luck. Superstition plays an important role
in the novel Huck Finn.

mind I wouldn't ever take a-holt of a snake-skin again with my hands,
now that I see what had come of it." (Twain 52).
As one can see Superstition plays an important role in the
novel Huck Finn. Huck killing the spider which is bad luck, the
hair-ball that tells fortunes, and the rattle-snake skin that Huck
touched are examples that brought bad luck to Huck and Jim in the
novel The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn.
