A Character Analysis of Tom Driscoll In Puddnhead Wilson by Mark Twain the story of two boys who were switched at early childhood is told One of these boys Tom Driscoll displays many characteristics in the novel Tom shows how he is rude and a liar but he also exhibits his ability to change his ways From his childhood to his later years it was evident that Tom Driscoll was a rude character For example during his childhood Tom and Chambers the boy with whom Tom was switched with and who was also Toms slave always went an played together On such instance was when they went swimming with Toms friends and were diving off of canoes Chambers was an excellent diver however Tom could not dive for it gave him splitting headaches And for this reason Chambers could do something that Tom could not do Tom pushed the canoe under Chambers as he was in a mid-air dive The result was that Chambers was unconscious and Toms spirit was gratified Later on when they were about fifteen the boys were swimming in the river as usual Tom fell ill to a cramp in the water and Chambers saved his life Instead of being grateful to Chambers and thanking him Tom said that anybody but a blockheaded nigger would have known he was funning and left him Tom alone 23 Furthermore after Tom had gone to college Yale and returned back to Dawsons Landing he still carried this trait This was evident when he was having a conversation with Puddnhead Wilson At the time Mr Wilson was hosting guests two of which were from out-of-town Regardless of the obvious company Tom kept his rude manor and made fun of Wilsons law career Although it was true that Puddnhead Wilsons law career was all but successful Tom had no right to embarrass him so especially in front of guests Not only was Tom Driscoll rude
