More About Mark Twain, Corbis Bettmann & Doris Benardete

Mark Twain Mark Twain, born Samuel Langhorne Clemens in 1835, led one of the most exciting of literary lives. Raised in the river town of Hannibal, Missouri, Twain had to leave school at age 12 and was successively a journeyman printer, a steamboat pilot, a halfhearted Confederate soldier, and a prospector, miner, and reporter in the western territories. His experiences furnished him with a wide knowledge of humanity, as well as with the perfect grasp of local customs and speech which manifests itself in his writing.

With the publication in 1865 of The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County, Twain gained national attention as a frontier humorist, and the bestselling Innocents Abroad solidified his fame. But it wasn't until Life on the Mississippi (1883), and finally, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn (1885), that he was recognized by the literary establishment as one of the greatest writers America would ever produce.

Toward the end of his life, plagued by personal tragedy and financial failure, Twain grew more and more pessimistic--an outlook not alleviated by his natural skepticism and sarcasm. Though his fame continued to widen--Yale & Oxford awarded him honorary degrees--Twain spent his last years in gloom and exasperation, writing fables about "the damned human race."

Mark Twain lived in Hannibal, in the state of Missouri. Mark Twain was born in 1835 and died in 1910.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
I bought two books of Mr. Twains quips; I did not need to.  Nov 11, 2006
This was the second book I picked up and though it is essentially the same as "The Wit And Wisdom of Mark Twain: A Book Of Quotations" (Dover), it is just as good. Everyone (American) should read Mark Twain, pick a book of quotes and get the flavor of his unuique humor.
 
The great American humorist   Dec 4, 2005
It is always a pleasure to read Mark Twain. He is the rare writer who simply sees the world, ( and hears it) in a humorous way. While his pessimism at human nature can at times seem exaggerated his perception of human fault and foible is so precise that it rarely fails to hit the funny bone.
The man who wrote to the paper that published his obituary ' that the reports of his death are greatly exaggerated, was maybe the sharpest of all the great American writers.
It is possible to prefer a cheaper, more full , less picture- rich edition than this little volume, but this little volume still has enough Twainisms for no small number of chuckles and laughs.
 
A Near Sub-Microscopic Volume  Nov 27, 2001
The book is hardcover and has a very nicely done dustcover. But it is far smaller and thinner than a paperback novelette. If I had known that this book was so small and had so few quotations and so little substance, I'd never have bought it. For about ($) dollars less you can get the paperback Dover Thrift Edition of Mark Twain quotations, "The Wit and Wisdom of Mark Twain: A Book of Quotations." It won't be as pretty, but it will deliver more substance.
