The criticism of Jim as a burgeoning character.
By Grace Hinds, Mia Marion, Sophie Tornay
Jim as a symbol of innocence
Jim was also utilized as a portrayal of innocence throughout the chapter. He rarely rebukes the rules applied by the Duke and the Dauphin. He is even seen helping the Dauphin with French, the language that the Dauphin supposedly forgot from his childhood.

The bias highlighted within societal interactions
This degradation of freed African-Americans or soon-to-be free slaves was a country-wide effort. “The nation, as well as Tom Sawyer, was deferring Jim’s freedom in agonizing play. The cyclical attempts to remove the novel from the classrooms extend Jim’s captivity on into each generation of readers.”
