Well, what does Huck represent?  He's a little, but smart and tough minded, boy, right?  Thus, who's perspective is the book told from?  Thus, what does it indicate about his mind?

Further, you say "in this excerpt" but do not give the excerpt.  What you should do is read the excerpt and think of how it reflects what you think about Huck's character.  Give quotes or examples.
