Overview

This book is the first systematic, comprehensive gathering of the reviews (primarily in the United States and Britain) of Mark Twain's books published up until 1917. The reviews collected here give the reader an unfiltered sense of how Twain's books and his reputation looked to his audience at the time. In addition, by devoting attention to each of Twain's books, this volume moves away from the current, distorting emphasis on a small number of publications and thus provides a broader perspective on Twain's career.
