Perhaps the best-loved nineteenth-century American novel,Mark Twain?s tale of boyhood adventure overflows with comedy, warmth, and slapstick energy. It brings to life and array of irresistible charactersthe awesomely self-confident Tom, his best buddy Huck Finn, indulgent Aunt Polly, and the lovely, beguiling Beckyas well as such unforgettable incidents as whitewashing a fence, swearing an oath in blood, and getting lost in a dark and labyrinthine cave. Below Tom Sawyer?s sunny surface lurk hints of a darker reality, of youthful innocence and na?vet? confronting the cruelty, hypocrisy, and foolishness of the adult worlda theme that would become more pronounced in Twain?sAdventures of Huckleberry Finn. Despite such suggestions, Tom Sawyer remains Twain?s joyful ode to the endless possibilities of childhood.
