This paper explains that comparing chapter one and chapter 15 of Mark Twain's "Adventures of Huckleberry Finn" shows that Huckleberry Finn has a change in his mindset about the feelings of being alone and loneliness and becomes appreciative of having someone with him. The author points out that, in chapter one, Finn, who is unhappy and lonely living with the widow, feels desperate to the point of wanting to die. The paper states that, in chapter fifteen, however, Finn finds out being all alone is frightening and learns what it is like to be alone and now enjoys Jim's company. The author underscores that this comparison should be done through the qualitative method because feelings are not something concrete that can be put into evidence but are based on the perspective of the person.

From the Paper:

"Finn was sitting on the water as if he was dead and he was alone. "If you think it ain't dismal and lonesome out in a fog that way by yourself in the night, you try it once--you'll see." Finn was beginning to have a different mindset about life. He was learning that being alone was having no one near to help him or not knowing what was happening in the fog. He is lonely and wishes someone was there to help him understand the sounds of the river and see through the fog."
