Overview

Adored and criticized throughout the literary world, Mark Twain’s wildly popular travel narratives and historical fiction brought us timeless characters like Huckleberry Finn and Tom Sawyer. Twain’s mastery of colloquial dialogue created shockingly accurate depictions of racism and prejudice, and resulted in his books being banned from more conservative libraries, both during his lifetime and nearly a century later. Praised for their uncanny wit, Twain’s uniquely entertaining dialogue and profound criticisms of the time’s social norms both humor and challenge readers.

The Select Works of Mark Twain contains 10 volumes of his finest works, including “the Great American Novel”—The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn—and its predecessor, The Adventures of Tom Sawyer.

Praise for the Author

. . . [Twain is] the father of American literature.

—William Faulkner, recipient, 1949 Nobel Prize in Literature

. . . [He was the] greatest American humorist of his age . . .

The New York Times

. . . Mark Twain has devoted his great powers to the service of the right. His work is characterized by a sweet sunniness, across which no shadow of impurity ever falls. . . . and his unrivalled powers of ridicule have been steadily directed against conventionality, hypocrisy, affectation, and humbug. It is not, I think, too much to prophesy that, when the time comes for a final estimate of Mark Twain, he will be recognized as one of the most national of American authors, and one of the peculiar glories of American literature.

Appleton’s Magazine

Twain was a master of colloquial speech and helped in creating and popularizing a distinctive American literature, on American themes and literature.

Individual Titles

The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn

  • Author: Mark Twain
  • Publisher: Harper & Brothers
  • Publication Date: 1912
  • Pages: 405

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5

The Oxford Handbook of Children’s Literature calls The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn “the Great American Novel.” The story begins with Huckleberry Finn and Tom Sawyer discovering a life-changing fortune and follows their ensuing adventures. The novel has been the source of intense study and criticism since its publication: it was the first novel to appear in vernacular English, and its coarse language and harsh satire of racism and prejudice have met with mixed reception. The novel is a sequel to The Adventures of Tom Sawyer.

All modern American literature comes from [Huckleberry Finn]. . . . the best book we’ve had.

—Ernest Hemmingway, recipient, 1954 Nobel Prize in Literature

Huckleberry Finn endures as a consensus masterpiece . . .

—Ron Powers, recipient, 1973 Pulitzer Prize for Criticism

. . . a novel for adults, indeed a classic, the great American novel.

The Innocents Abroad

  • Author: Mark Twain
  • Publisher: American Publishing Company
  • Publication Date: 1869
  • Pages: 651

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5

The Innocents Abroad is one of the best-selling travel books ever written, and Twain’s most popular work during his lifetime. The narrative is based on a journey throughout Europe and the Holy Land, aboard the vessel Quaker City.

Under his nom de plume of Mark Twain, Mr. Clemens is well known to the very large world of newspaper-readers; and this book ought to secure him something better than the uncertain standing of a popular favorite. It is no business of ours to fix his rank among the humorists California has given us, but we think he is, in an entirely different way from all the others, quite worthy of the company of the best.

  • Publication Date: 1897
  • Pages: 712

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5

Following the Equator: A Journey around the World is a mostly true travelogue of Twain’s tour of the British Empire.

  • Pages: 575

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5

A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court follows a Yankee engineer who is transported through time to King Arthur’s court. Using his knowledge of modern engineering, as well as explosives, fireworks, and other nineteenth-century technology, he fools the medieval society into believing he is a magician. The novel is sometimes credited with creating the science-fiction genre of time travel, although a handful of earlier stories (by authors like H. G. Wells) involve time travel as well. The novel did, however, represent the first exploration of the effects of modern technology on earlier civilizations in time-travel narratives.

About Mark Twain

Samuel Langhorne Clemens (1835–1910) was a highly influential American humorist author, better known by his pen name, Mark Twain. While he earned enormous financial success from his writings, his other pursuits incurred him enormous debt, and he eventually filed for bankruptcy. Despite having no legal obligation to repay his creditors, Twain paid them back in full when he overcame his financial misfortunes. Twain enjoyed a close friendship with Nikola Tesla, whose lab satisfied Twain’s appetite for science. Twain patented three inventions, including a replacement for suspenders and a history-trivia game; his novel A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court showcases his passion for scientific ingenuity. In general, Twain’s literary works embody his deep anti-imperialist beliefs, his criticism of racism, and his disdain for some aspects of organized religion. His novel The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn is widely hailed as “the Great American Novel.”
