Read full description of the books Tom Sawyer:

[...] La mirada irónica, no necesariamente acerada sino más bien tierna y cómplice, tiene el don de explicarnos un personaje de forma cabal y con él su ambiente y entorno. Mark Twain debía saberlo y bajo esa mirada irónica quiso dejar constancia, a su modo, de un mundo donde el bien y el mal no residían necesariamente en los lugares establecidos por la sociedad ni radicaban en los hechos que consideraba como tales [...]
Las aventuras de Tom Sawyer, el libro de Mark Twain que más éxitos consiguió y sigue consiguiendo tanto de venta como de crítica, así lo demuestra página tras página. Y es más, no solo varían los objetivos y la valoración moral de los actos según ese punto de mira, sino también según los tiempos y las ocasiones. De ahí que a lo largo del libro vayan moviéndose y transformándose los proscritos en héroes como en el caso de Huck Finn, o los castigos en éxitos, como en el de la valla encalada.

Read information about the author

Ebook Tom Sawyer read Online! Samuel Langhorne Clemens, better known by his pen name Mark Twain, was an American author and humorist. He is noted for his novels Adventures of Huckleberry Finn (1885), called "the Great American Novel", and The Adventures of Tom Sawyer (1876).

Twain grew up in Hannibal, Missouri, which would later provide the setting for Huckleberry Finn and Tom Sawyer. He apprenticed with a printer. He also worked as a typesetter and contributed articles to his older brother Orion's newspaper. After toiling as a printer in various cities, he became a master riverboat pilot on the Mississippi River, before heading west to join Orion. He was a failure at gold mining, so he next turned to journalism. While a reporter, he wrote a humorous story, "The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County," which proved to be very popular and brought him nationwide attention. His travelogues were also well-received. Twain had found his calling.

He achieved great success as a writer and public speaker. His wit and satire earned praise from critics and peers, and he was a friend to presidents, artists, industrialists, and European royalty.

However, he lacked financial acumen. Though he made a great deal of money from his writings and lectures, he squandered it on various ventures, in particular the Paige Compositor, and was forced to declare bankruptcy. With the help of Henry Huttleston Rogers, however, he eventually overcame his financial troubles. Twain worked hard to ensure that all of his creditors were paid in full, even though his bankruptcy had relieved him of the legal responsibility.

Born during a visit by Halley's Comet, he died on its return. He was lauded as the "greatest American humorist of his age", and William Faulkner called Twain "the father of American literature".
