Tom Sawyer (The Adventures of Tom Sawyer) Tom Sawyer is the young hero of Mark Twain’s 1876 classic, The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, and one of the most beloved characters in American literature. Rosy-cheeked, barefoot and mischievous, he embodies boyhood in another time, another place. He inspires nostalgia in us for an era we never knew; he makes us feel as if we did. His adventures include the famous fence whitewashing, the escape from McDougal’s cave, his courtship of Becky Thatcher, the appearance at his own “funeral”, the murder in the cemetery and the escape and demise of Injun Joe. More important than the episodic tales of his derring-do, however, is the evolution of a young boy into a young man in the making. We can see that he will be the type of young man who will honor the moral code being taught by Aunt Polly, and who at the same time will maintain a lively questioning mind about the veracity of some of society’s operating standards. The next most important thing about Tom Sawyer is that he introduces us to Huck Finn.
