ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

The Adventures of Tom Sawyer by Mark Twain is an 1876 novel about a young boy growing up along the Mississippi River.

The story is set in the fictional town of St. Petersburg, inspired by Hannibal, Missouri, where Twain lived. Tom Sawyer lives with his Aunt Polly and his half-brother Sid. Tom dirties his clothes in a fight and is made to whitewash the fence the next day as punishment. He cleverly persuades his friends to trade him small treasures for the privilege of doing his work. He then trades the treasures for Sunday School tickets which one normally receives for memorizing verses, redeeming them for a Bible, much to the surprise and bewilderment of the superintendent who thought "it was simply preposterous that this boy had warehoused two thousand sheaves of Scriptural wisdom on his premises—a dozen would strain his capacity, without a doubt." Tom falls in love with Becky Thatcher, a new girl in town, and persuades her to get "engaged" by kissing him. But their romance collapses when she learns Tom has been "engaged" previously to Amy Lawrence. Shortly after Becky shuns him, he accompanies Huckleberry Finn to the graveyard at night, where they witness the murder of Dr. Robinson.

Author Biography

Mark Twain, seudónimo de Samuel Langhorne Clemens, nació en Florida, Missouri, en 1835. Pasó su infancia y adolescencia en Hannibal, a orillas del río Mississippi. En 1861 viajó a Nevada como ayudante personal de su hermano, que acababa de ser nombrado secretario del gobernador. Más tarde, en San Francisco, trabajó en The Morning Call. En 1866 realizó un viaje de seis meses por las islas Hawái y al año siguiente embarcó hacia Europa. Resultado de este último viaje fue uno de sus primeros éxitos editoriales, Inocentes en el extranjero, publicado en 1869. En 1876 publicó su segunda obra de gran éxito, Las aventuras de Tom Sawyer, y en 1885 la que los críticos consideran su mejor obra, Las aventuras de Huckleberry Finn. Murió en 1910 en Redding, Connecticut.
