Biografía del autor:

Mark Twain was born Samuel Langhorne Clemens in Florida, Missouri, in 1835, and died at 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. "

Descripción Library of America, New York, 1982. Hardcover. Estado de conservación: New. 1st Edition. CLASSIC: COMPELLING: NEW hardcover 1st ed. (orig, 1982) 18th printing (c. 2012), excellent slipcase w/ double-ruled borders & LOA-logo on front panel & w/ sharp new edges & corners, new blue Brillianta fabric over boards cover w/ excellent edges & corners & titles & Library of America colophon handsomely gold-stamped on spine, impeccable smooth-cut text-block exterior, excellent white-on-blue patterned end-papers on heavy stock, pristine interior printed in remarkably clear 10-point Linotron Galliard on superb acid-free Ecusta Nyalite paper * 5.0" x 8.12" x 1.48", 0.68 kg, 1084 pp. * W/ Slipcase: 5.36" x 8.46" x 1.54", 0.81 kg, 1084 pp. * CONTENTS: The Adventures of Tom Sawyer (1), Life on the Mississippi (217), Adventures of Huckleberry Finn (617), Pudd'nhead Wilson (913), Chronology (1057), Note on the Texts (1065), Notes (1071) * Mark Twain is perhaps the most widely-read & enjoyed of all American writers. Here, together for the 1st time in one volume, are his best known works. Through ea. of them runs the Mississippi, the river that T.S. Eliot, echoing Twain, was to cal the "strong brown god." For Twain the river represented the complex & often contradictory possibilities in his own & in his nation's life. The Mississippi marks the place where civilization, moving west w/ its comforts & proprieties, discovers & contends w/ the rough realities, violence, chicaneries, & promise of freedom on the frontier. It is the place, too, where the currents Mark Twain learned to navigate as a pilot (an experience recounted in 'Life on the Misssissippi')move inexorably into the deep South, so that the innocence of joyful play & boyhood along its shores eventually confronts the grim realities of slavery. 'Tom Sawyer' in 1876 "is simply a hymn," said its author, "put into prose form to give it a worldly air," a book where nostalgia is so strong that it dissolves the tensions & perplexities that assert themselves in the later works. Twain began 'Huckleberry Finn' the same year 'Tom Sawyer' was published, but he was unable to complete it for several more. It was during this period of uncertainty that Twain made a pilgrimage to the scenes of his childhood in Hannibal, Missouri, a trip that led eventually to 'Life on the Mississippi'. The river in Twain's descriptions is a bewitching mixture of beauty & power, seductive calms & treacherous shoals, pleasure & terror, an image of the societies it touches & transports. * The Library of America is an award-winning, nonprofit program dedicated to publishing America's best & most significant writing in handsome, enduring volumes, featuring authoritative texts. Hailed as "the most important book-publishing project in the nation's history" (Newsweek), this acclaimed series is restoring America's literary heritage in "the finest-looking, longest-lasting edition ever made" (New Republic).
