Autobiography of Mark Twain, Volume I
36,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

´I´ve struck it!´ Mark Twain wrote in a 1904 letter to a friend. ´And I will give it away - to you. You will never know how much enjoyment you have lost until you get to dictating your autobiography.´ Thus, after dozens of false starts and hundreds of pages, Twain embarked on his ´Final (and Right) Plan´ for telling the story of his life. His innovative notion - to ´talk only about the thing which interests you for the moment´ - meant that his thoughts could range freely. The strict instruction that many of these texts remain unpublished for 100 years meant that when they came out, he would be ´dead, and unaware, and indifferent,´ and that he was therefore free to speak his ´whole frank mind.´ The year 2010 marks the 100th anniversary of Twain´s death. In celebration of this important milestone and in honor of the cherished tradition of publishing Mark Twain´s works, ´´UC Press´´ is proud to offer for the first time Mark Twain´s uncensored autobiography in its entirety and exactly as he left it. This major literary event brings to readers, admirers, and scholars the first of three volumes and presents Mark Twain´s authentic and unsuppressed voice, brimming with humor, ideas, and opinions, and speaking clearly from the grave as he intended.

Mark Twain: A Life, Hörbuch, Digital, 1, 660min

Mark Twain founded the American voice. His works are a living national treasury: taught, quoted, and reprinted more than those of any writer except Shakespeare. His awestruck contemporaries saw him as the representative figure of his times, and his influence has deeply flavored the 20th and 21st centuries. Yet somehow, beneath the vast flowing river of literature that he left behind, books, sketches, speeches, not to mention the thousands of letters to his friends and his remarkable entries in private journals, the man who became Mark Twain, Samuel Langhorne Clemens, has receded from view, leaving us with only faint and often trivialized remnants of his towering personality. In Mark Twain, Ron Powers consummates years of thought and research with a tour de force on the life of our culture´s founding father, re-creating the 19th century´s vital landscapes and tumultuous events while restoring the human being at their center. He offers Sam Clemens as he lived, breathed, and wrote, drawing heavily on the preserved viewpoints of the people who knew him best (especially the great William Dean Howells, his most admiring friend and literary co-conspirator), and on the annals of the American 19th century that he helped shape. Powers´s prose rivals Mark Twain´s own in its blend of humor, telling detail, and flights of lyricism. With the assistance of the Mark Twain Project at Berkeley, he has been able to draw on thousands of letters and notebook entries, many only recently discovered. 1. Language: English.

Twain & Stanley Enter Paradise , Hörbuch, Digit...

Twain & Stanley Enter Paradise, by Pulitzer Prize-winning author Oscar Hijuelos, is a luminous work of fiction inspired by the real-life, 37-year friendship between two towering figures of the late 19th century, famed writer and humorist Mark Twain and legendary explorer Sir Henry Morton Stanley. Hijuelos was fascinated by the Twain-Stanley connection and eventually began researching and writing a novel that used the scant historical record of their relationship as a starting point for a more detailed fictional account. It was a labor of love for Hijuelos, who worked on the project for more than 10 years, publishing other novels along the way but always returning to Twain and Stanley; indeed, he was still revising the manuscript the day before his sudden passing in 2013. The resulting novel is a richly woven tapestry of people and events that is unique among the author´s works, both in theme and structure. Hijuelos ingeniously blends correspondence, memoir, and third-person omniscience to explore the intersection of these Victorian giants in a long-vanished world. From their early days as journalists in the American West to their admiration and support of each other´s writing, their mutual hatred of slavery, their social life together in the dazzling literary circles of the period, and even a mysterious journey to Cuba to search for Stanley´s adoptive father, Twain & Stanley Enter Paradise superbly channels two vibrant but very different figures. It is also a study of Twain´s complex bond with Mrs. Stanley, the bohemian portrait artist Dorothy Tennant, who introduces Twain and his wife to the world of séances and mediums after the tragic death of their daughter. A compelling and deeply felt historical fantasia that utilizes the full range of Hijuelos´ gifts, Twain & Stanley Enter Paradise stands as an unforgettable coda to a brilliant writing career. 1.

Edited by Harriet Elinor Smith and other editors of the Mark Twain Project. Mark Twain (1835 - 1910) was born Samuel L. Clemens in the town of Florida, Missouri. One of the most popular and influential authors our nation has ever produced, his keen wit and incisive satire earned him praise from both critics and peers. He has been called not only the greatest humorist of his age but the father of American literature. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Grover Gardner.

Pudd´nhead Wilson: A Tale by Mark Twain , Hörbu...
20,97 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Pudd´nhead Wilson, like many other Mark Twain books, was read aloud by the author to his wife and daughters, chapter by chapter, as it was being written.This humorous, dramatic, and sometimes shocking novel, set in the pre-war south, is the tale of Roxy, a beautiful and intelligent slave woman who contrives to save her own light-skinned child from being ´´sold down the river´´. She successfully switches her baby with the master´s own child, starting a chain of events that lead to surprising and tragic results. This book is considered by many to be Mark Twain´s best book dealing with the cruelty, horror, and inhumanity of slavery in 19th century America. Pudd´nhead, the title character, not only provides humorous aphorisms and wry observations on the little river town, he also proves to be the catalyst that solves the mystery, radically changing the lives of all of those involved.Interestingly, Mark Twain´s use of fingerprints as evidence in a fictional criminal trial predated the official acceptance of such evidence in actual U.S. courts by two years.This recording is a recreation of Mark Twain´s own reading, just as his family might have heard the story for the first time in the family library. 1.
