It was not until my teacher required it to be read in class did I begin to understand why the book was so popular. However, as revealed by the narrator here, Huck’s conscience wins over his fear this time as he wants to help the Widow Douglas, who has shown him kindness. If Tom would have just listened and painted the fence, he would have been saved from having to deal with the consequences later.

When she falsely accuses Tom of something that Sid did, Aunt Polly realizes her mistake, but feels afraid to apologize as such an action might undermine her authority over Tom. Tom Sawyer is the quintessential creator of advantage from adversity.And in my estimate,he epitomises “making a lemonade when fate hands you a lemon”.That’s the spiritual lesson drawn from the beauty of assimilating Tom Sawyer character fully.The way he craetively inspires others to paint a fencing, and gets to bask in the glory of their adulation is magnificent really.

Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn were not…, in one hundred years: women are standing up for themselves, children are changing the world, but still the works of three authors, Mark Twain, O. Henry, and John Steinbeck, have stood the test of time and stand strong as classic books of the twenty-first century.

This book is not something that was drastically different, and was not a book that posed new modern ideas. Here, Aunt Polly demonstrates moral cowardice by feeling badly about mistreating Tom but choosing not to own up to her mistake. When most people think of Tom Sawyer, they remember that he had to paint the fence as punishment, and the camaraderie between Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn.
