Tom Sawyer abroad
Charles L. Webster & Company. 1894 1st ed Tom Sawyer Abroad Mark TWAIN Jules Verne Parody Illustrated Africa “A lie can travel halfway around the world while the truth is putting on its shoes.” ― Mark Twain Mark Twain and his works were immensely popular all on their own. Such notable characters as Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn stood out above other 19th-century literary characters, and not just in the United States. However, Twain sought to show his level of literary ability and expertise with the 1894 classic ‘Tom Sawyer Abroad’. Jules Verne created several adventure novels, many of which are still well-known and popular today; however, Twain wanted to parody the Verne-style adventure. In ‘Tom Sawyer Abroad,’ Twain puts Tom and Huck in a futuristic hot air balloon ride to Africa where they encounter world wonders, robbers, and other adventure tropes. While it has nowhere near the popularity of the original Twain ‘Adventure’ titles, ‘Tom Sawyer Abroad’ is still a fine work of American adventure fiction.
