Product description
Synopsis
This classic novel of childhood is set in fictional St. Petersburg, a town based on Mark Twains hometown of Hannibal, Missouri. Twains recounting of Tom Sawyers many escapades is by turns nostalgic, satiric, wise, and hilarious. While this novel is often considered as the precursor to Twains great work The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, it is abundantly worth considering for its own deft and loving transformation of autobiography into fiction.

Reviews
"Broadview's new edition of The Adventures of Tom Sawyer offers students access not only to the text of Mark Twain's classic 1876 novel but to the 19th-century world that inspired it. Lucy Rollin's excellent introduction traces Sam Clemens's path from Hannibal to Hartford, where his childhood memories came to life in the form of an oddly disjointed, episodic, and irresistible tale of romance and adventure. The edition's four appendices offer an even more detailed picture of the novel's cultural context, including rich excerpts from rival 'boy books' by Thomas Bailey Aldrich, Charles Dudley Warner, and William Dean Howells, as well as primary material of the sort a small-town American child might have grown up with in the 1840s. This volume is a magnificent teaching tool, which offers even experienced readers of Mark Twain a compelling reason to return to his first important work of fiction." - Henry B. Wonham, University of Oregon
