More About Doris Benardete & Mark Twain


Mark Twain Mark Twain was born Samuel Langhorne Clemens in Florida, Missouri, in 1835 and died in Redding, Connecticut, in 1910. In his person and in his pursuits, he was a man of extraordinary contrasts. Although he left school at twelve when his father died, he was eventually awarded honorary degrees from Yale University, the University of Missouri, and Oxford University. His career encompassed such varied occupations as printer, Mississippi riverboat pilot, journalist, travel writer, and publisher. He made fortunes from his writing but toward the end of his life he had to resort to lecture tours to pay his debts. He was hot-tempered, profane, and sentimental--and also pessimistic, cynical, and tortured by self-doubt. His nostalgia helped produce some of his best books. He lives in American letters as a great artist, the writer whom William Dean Howells called "the Lincoln of our literature."

A graduate of Harvard College, Everett Emerson was an Alumni Distinguished Professor, Emeritus, at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. He was the author or editor of many books, including Mark Twain: A Literary Life. Emerson also taught in Massachusetts, New York, Pennsylvania, Virginia, Florida, Louisiana, and California. He was the founder of the Mark Twain Circle, and for twenty years edited the journal Early American Literature.

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

Reviews - What do customers think about Mark Twain Wit and Wisecracks (Americana Pocket Gift Editions)?

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.
