The novel represents Twain's first attempt at historical fiction. Set in 1547, it tells the story of two young boys who are identical in appearance: Tom Canty, a pauper who lives with his abusive father in Offal Court off Pudding Lane in London, and Prince Edward, son of King Henry VIII.
„Aki nem olvasta a Tom Sawyer kalandjai címû könyvet, mit se tudhat rólam, de az nem tesz semmit. A könyvet egy Mark Twain nevû úriember írta, és nagyjából az igazságot írta meg. Néha lódított egyet-mást, de azért a java igazság, amit írt." Huckleberry Finn szavai ezek, a regény izgalmas eseményeit ugyanis az õ elbeszélésébõl ismerjük meg. De ott van mellette hûséges barátja, Tom Sawyer is. Minden nagy vállalkozásuk közös: hajóznak a Mississippin, szélhámosok társaságába keverednek, nagy és izgalmas „rabszolga-szabadító"akciót folytatnak – úgy, ahogy az igazi nagy regényekben meg van írva – az öreg Jim megszöktetésére. A legnehezebb mégis: mindezt megírni. Huck Finn õszinte szavai szerint: „Ha tudtam volna, hogy milyen fene nehéz dolog egy ilyen könyvet megírni, bele se fogtam volna; nem is kezdek ilyenbe még egyszer."
Roughing It follows the travels of young Mark Twain through the Wild West during the years 1861–1867. After a brief stint as a Confederate cavalry militiaman, he joined his brother Orion Clemens, who had been appointed Secretary of the Nevada Territory, on a stagecoach journey west. Twain consulted his brother's diary to refresh his memory and borrowed heavily from his active imagination for many stories in the novel.Roughing It illustrates many of Twain's early adventures, including a visit to Salt Lake City, gold and silver prospecting, real-estate speculation, and his beginnings as a writer.In this memoir, readers can see examples of Twain's rough-hewn humor, which would become a staple of his writing in his later books, such as Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, and A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court.(Source: Wikipedia)
Tom Sawyer Abroad is a novel by Mark Twain published in 1894. It features Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn in a parody of Jules Verne-esque adventure stories. In the story, Tom, Huck, and Jim set sail to Africa in a futuristic hot air balloon, where they survive encounters with lions, robbers, and fleas to see some of the world's greatest wonders, including the Pyramids and the Sphinx. Like Adventures of Huckleberry Finn and Tom Sawyer, Detective, the story is told using the first-person narrative voice of Huck Finn.
