C F
(Oct 09 2020 1:24PM) : This is SUPER important! Tom is obsessed with adventure books. After a period of war, it is typical for our society to become interested in books with romanticized stories. Twain answers this romanticism with his realism stories. Tom represents the more

romanticized literature. Ben Rogers represents the realists. (Huck is more like Ben Rogers but doesn’t speak up in this part. Why might this be the case?)

(Oct 09 2020 1:25PM) : They are roughly 12 or 13. They won't actually commit the crimes. They are simply being imaginative and talking tough.
