These selected paragraphs distill the contents and give you a quick look inside The Adventures of Tom Sawyer:Look inside the book: And such a luxury to him was this petting of his sorrows, that he could not bear to have any worldly cheeriness or any grating delight intrude upon it; it was too sacred for such contact; and so, presently, when his cousin Mary danced in, all alive with the joy of seeing home again after an age-long visit of one week to the country, he got up and moved in clouds and darkness out at one door as she brought song and sunshine in at the other. ...Then quite a group of boys and girls-playmates of Tom's and Joe's-came by, and stood looking over the paling fence and talking in reverent tones of how Tom did so-and-so the last time they saw him, and how Joe said this and that small trifle (pregnant with awful prophecy, as they could easily see now!)-and each speaker pointed out the exact spot where the lost lads stood at the time, and then added something like 'and I was a-standing just so-just as I am now, and as if you was him-I was as close as that-and he smiled, just this way-and then something seemed to go all over me, like-awful, you know-and I never thought what it meant, of course, but I can see now!' About Mark Twain, the Author: During his seventeen years in Hartford (1874-1891) and over twenty summers at Quarry Farm, Twain wrote many of his classic novels, among them The Adventures of Tom Sawyer (1876), The Prince and the Pauper (1881), Life on the Mississippi (1883), Adventures of Huckleberry Finn (1885) and A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court (1889). ...Yet not withstanding it is only a record of a picnic, it has a purpose, which is, to suggest to the reader how he would be likely to see Europe and the East if he looked at them with his own eyes instead of the eyes of those who traveled in those countries before him.
