$ 28.95
SynopsisFamous during his lifetime as a humorist and for his incandescent social commentary and satire, Mark Twain is most often thought of today as a novelist whose precise language and strong characters introduce readers to issues of individual freedom and community responsibility. Twain's best-known novels - The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, The Prince and the Pauper, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court, and Pudd'nhead Wilson - are landmarks of literature that continue to entertain modern readers with their wit and insight into the American experience of the nineteenth century. As popular in their day as they remain still, the five novels in this literary omnibus are tales for the ages that testify to the genius of Mark Twain. Mark Twain: Five Novels is part of Barnes & Noble's Library of Essential Writers. Each title in the series presents the finest works - complete and unabridged - from one of the greatest writers in literature in magnificent, elegantly designed hard-back editions. Every volume also includes an original introduction that provides the reader with enlightening information on the writer's life and works.BiographyRiverboat pilot, journalist, failed businessman (several times over): Samuel Clemens -- the man behind the figure of “Mark Twain” -- led many lives. But it was in his novels and short stories that he created a voice and an outlook on life that will be forever identified with the American character. RKV-99.Mark Twain
