The adventures of Tom Sawyer by Mark Twain( Book )

24 editions published between 1980 and 2010 in English and held by 999 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is Mark Twain's first novel about Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn, and it has become one of the world's best loved books. It is a fond reminiscence of life in Hannibal, Missouri, an evocation of Mark Twain's one boyhood along the banks of the Mississippi during the 1840s. "Most of the adventures recorded in this book really occurred," he tells us. The Mark Twain Library edition contains the only text since the first edition (1876) to be based directly on the author's manuscript and to include all of the "200 rattling pictures" Mark Twain commissioned from one of his favorite illustrators, True W. Williams. This landmark anniversary edition contains a selection of original documents by Mark Twain, including several letters in his inimitable voice about writing Tom Sawyer and about its original publication."--Back cover

5 editions published between 1984 and 1986 in English and held by 793 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Readers of Mark Twain seldom doubt his genius, but defining that genius and locating its source continue to challenge students of American literature. Equally elusive is an explanation of the intriguing phenomenon of Twain as a mythic figure, both shaper and embodier of an American mythos. Perhaps no single critical approach can adequately assess the complex force behind Samuel Clemens and Mark Twain. This native genius, our quintessential artist, rightfully provokes a number of powerful responses, as these original essays demonstrate
