Since the decade of the 's, The Adventures of Tom Sawyer had been influential to many succeeding generations for a theme that opened the eyes of many Americans and influenced the mindset of writers by seeing the frail nature of humans. Through the story's structure, setting, plot, characters and styles, a reader can develop a general idea that 'everyman has a good nature but as well evil and imperfect nature'.
Through the setting of The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, the time period, and the location of the story, Mark Twain helps the readers understand the theme of human goodness and wickedness.
Bible Verses About Hypocrisy
The setting is the fictional town of St. Petersburg, Missouri. The time period is not specifically mentioned in the story, but readers can infer that it is during the 's where Negro slaves were widely common in almost every house in the village. In the small village where everybody knows everyone and where adults work together to watch out for each other's children and to discipline them by forcing them to go to school and to memorize Bible verses because for them, good image is necessary to have a good life.
Twain believes that hypocrisy is one of the evil natures of man, just like those adults in the village who would rather pretend to be someone else than actually become one.
On the other hand, Twain also shows the natural goodness of man when the villagers worked together to help search for Tom and Becky when they were lost in a cave. Many women visited Aunt Polly and Mrs. Thatcher and tried to comfort them. They cried with them too The plot structured of the story of Tom Sawyer helps readers understand further about the theme for it gives evidences of man's inherent imperfection.
Hypocrites in His Midst : A Story about Flawed Human Beings
The story started with a catchy exposition as the writer uses diction within Tom and Aunt Polly's conversation. After tiring herself of looking for Tom for a long time, Aunt Polly finally found Tom hiding in her closet. What is that truck? Forty times I've said leave that jam alone The first words that Tom speaks in this story already show the evil nature of man, that he will do anything just to get away from trouble. In Tom's situation, he lied by saying "nothing" and "I don't know" when there is actually something and he obviously knows what he's been doing.
With the theme, the characters, and the past already introduced during the exposition by using a contrived dialogue, the writer provided himself with the convenience and ease of setting the story on track. In connection to the exposition, the theme is also illustrated in several ways in the story's rising action as it moves along a series of conflicts built into one big conflict.
The major conflict of the story is Tom's struggle to become free from his Aunt, who acts as a parent, and to satisfy his desire for adventure and fame. Multiple minor conflicts are presented in the story, each with its own climax and falling action.
