Lesson Overview

The Adventures of Tom Sawyer is integral to any foundation in the study and appreciation of literature. It is the epic of youth, an adventure we have all shared. “The Rainbow” by English Romantic poet, William Wordsworth, is a wonderful supplement to this classic work of American fiction. Both capture the fierce joy and wonder of childhood, and the necessary and hazardous passage into adulthood.

Great essay! It suggests -- reveals, I think -- unexpected depth in this book.
