Summary

Summary

Las aventuras de Tom Sawyer es el relato de unos meses en la vida de este niño que vive en una ciudad pequeña del suroeste de Estados Unidos a orillas del Mississippi. Criado por su tía Polly que lo quiere de corazón pero que lo somete a una disciplina que se le hace absurda y desagradable Tom contempla el mundo de una manera muy distinta a como lo hacen los adultos con los que tiene que convivir. Precisamente porque existe ese distanciamiento nos entretiene con sus reacciones divertidas y nobles. Más agreste y rebelde contra ese universo de las personas mayores es su amigo Huckleberry Finn el compañero ideal de Tom que es envidiado por los demás niños que contemplan en su vida una forma de existencia que a ellos les gustaría llevar. Juntos vivirán aventuras humorísticas y dramáticas de las que podrán salir más airosos de lo que hubiera podido hacerlo cualquier adulto. Al final -siquiera en apariencia- tanto Tom como Huck acabarán siendo conducidos a ese contexto de personas que crecerán y dejarán de ser niños.

Author Bio: Mark Twain

Author Bio: Mark Twain

Mark Twain, pseudonym of Samuel L. Clemens (1835–1910), was born in Florida, Missouri, and grew up in Hannibal on the west bank of the Mississippi River. He attended school briefly and then at age thirteen became a full-time apprentice to a local printer. When his older brother Orion established the Hannibal Journal, Samuel became a compositor for that paper and then, for a time, an itinerant printer. With a commission to write comic travel letters, he traveled down the Mississippi. Smitten with the riverboat life, he signed on as an apprentice to a steamboat pilot. After 1859, he became a licensed pilot, but two years later the Civil War put an end to the steam-boat traffic.

In 1861, he and his brother traveled to the Nevada Territory where Samuel became a writer for the Virginia City Territorial Enterprise, and there, on February 3, 1863, he signed a humorous account with the pseudonym Mark Twain. The name was a river man’s term for water “two fathoms deep” and thus just barely safe for navigation.

In 1870 Twain married and moved with his wife to Hartford, Connecticut. He became a highly successful lecturer in the United States and England, and he continued to write.
