Tom Sawyer, Detective

Mark Twain

Book Overview: 

Tom Sawyer, Detective is a sequel to The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, and Tom Sawyer Abroad. Tom Sawyer attempts to solve a mysterious murder in this burlesque of the immensely popular detective novels of the time. Tom and Huck find themselves with Uncle Silas and his family again (see “Huck Finn”), and much of the drama ends up focusing on Uncle Silas. Like the two preceding novels, the story is told using the first-person narrative voice of Huck Finn.

Book Excerpt: 
. . .If there'd been three—But never mind about that, there warn't three. I loafed along the back streets studying and studying. And I says to myself, I'll hog them di'monds the first chance I get, and I'll have a disguise all ready, and I'll give the boys the slip, and when I'm safe away I'll put it on, and then let them find me if they can. So I got the false whiskers and the goggles and this countrified suit of clothes, and fetched them along back in a hand-bag; and when I was passing a shop where they sell all sorts of things, I got a glimpse of one of my pals through the window. It was Bud Dixon. I was glad, you bet. I says to myself, I'll see what he buys. So I kept shady, and watched. Now what do you reckon it was he bought?"

"Whiskers?" said I.

"No."

"Goggles?"

"No."

"Oh, keep still, Huck Finn, can't you, you're only just hendering all you can. What WAS it he bought, Jake?"

Twain gives a powerful argument in this work about the nature of man. Through a dialogue between an old man and a young man, Twain argues through the voice of the former that everything about a man is the product of his 'conditioning', that (get this) "From his cradle to his grave a man never does a

What Is Man?

Apparently man is a selfish prick that can't think for himself and relies on "outside influences". He is a chameleon. He is nothing but a mere machine. Well, at least according to Twain. Man is a fraud and only lives for himself. He is really driving home this point that everyone is self

الكتاب مثير وممتع وصريح وحقيقي بنسبة 99% يناقش مجموعة من الاسئلة في حوار بين شاب وشيخ ..
ما الانسان ؟ هل هو ألة ؟ هل يقدر علي خلق افكار جديدة من العدم ؟ هل نتوقع أن يتغير أم أن الانسان ابن بيئته ؟
هل الانسان يسعي لارضاء نفسه وتقدير ذاته أم يضحي من أجل الآخرين ؟ هل الانسان يبحث عن الحقيقة أم يحاول اثب

“It isn’t a philosophy, it’s a fact.”

Without wanting to enter into a debate on whether facts and philosophy are necessarily at odds with each other, in that a fact can never be grasped by philosophy, I have to confess that I read Mark Twain’s essay What Is Man? with bated breath and found most of it
