Joan of Arc

release date: Oct 07, 2021
Joan of Arc
Joan of Arc is Mark Twain’s novel and was published as a complete work under his name in 1896. One finds a remarkably accurate biography of the life and mission of ‘Joan of Arc’ told by one of this country''s greatest storytellers. The very fact that Mark Twain wrote this book and wrote it the way he did is a powerful testimony to the attractive power of the Catholic Church''s saints. This is a book that really will inform and inspire. The novel is a stark departure from Twain’s usual comic and satirical writings, which is why he insisted it initially be published anonymously so that the public would take it seriously. Twain was deeply fascinated by ‘Joan of Arc’ for much of his life. He considered it to be his best and most important work and spent nearly 15 years researching and working on the novel. The result is a work of sincere and engrossing historical fiction.

Autobiography of Mark Twain

release date: May 21, 2021
Autobiography of Mark Twain
Autobiography of Mark Twain (1907) is a collection of autobiographical writings by American humorist Mark Twain. Dictated toward the end of his life, the Autobiography of Mark Twain is a series of brief reflections on 74 years of fame, hard work, and adventure by an icon of American literature. Originally serialized in the North American Review, the United States’ oldest literary magazine, the Autobiography of Mark Twain has gone through countless editions in the century after Twain’s death, and is considered a masterpiece of literary nonfiction. “I intend that this autobiography shall become a model for all future autobiographies when it is published [...] because of its form and method—a form and method whereby the past and the present are constantly brought face to face, resulting in contrasts which newly fire up the interest all along, like contact of flint with steel.” Focusing on the small events, unremarkable encounters, and marginalia which make a life both common and particular, Mark Twain envisions a model of autobiography capable of dispelling the myth of the writer as a man of fortune and mysterious talent. Capturing episodes from his youth and the early stages of his writing career, reflecting on the importance of his wife Olivia and daughter Susy, and describing the influence of labor on his philosophy of life, Twain invites his reader to recognize him not just as Samuel Clemens, his birth name, but as a man who lived and worked and triumphed and suffered alongside others, as a man whose success was a testament to the power of community. With a beautifully designed cover and professionally typeset manuscript, this edition of Mark Twain’s Autobiography of Mark Twain is a classic of American literature reimagined for modern readers.

Roughing It

release date: Mar 23, 2021
Roughing It
Roughing It by Mark Twain Mark Twain claimed that his literary hybrid Roughing It was nothing more than a simple personal narrative, with no intention of presenting that narrative as history or philosophy. Well, Mark Twain has said a lot of things, some of which are untrustworthy. In fact, Roughing It was more than just a personal memoir: it helped situate the American Frontier mythology in the minds of those who would never come close to picking up an occasional book. Roughing It is actually two stories combined. The first traces the path Twain took to the west to make his fortune. Along the way, of course, there have been many business setbacks and failures. The second half of the book, however, could not be possible, unless you finally found your fortune because the latter part of the book essentially asks the question that is hardly ever asked of someone looking to make a fortune: that are you going to do? with that when you do it? The answer really lies in the volume one holds when playing the version of Twain. What he did was go from Samuel Clemens to Mark Twain, and the rest of his life was spent marketing this product. Part of that marketing was Roughing It which, as a personal narrative, offers a unique perspective on the West''s transformation from a rugged border to a land of myths. Who better to give a faithfully ironic account of Brigham Young''s determination to build a Mormon empire? Besides, what other writer could possibly add something to the stereotypical image of prospecting for gold in Nevada and California. It takes a genius of Twain''s caliber to see beyond the conventional representation of surface effects. The result is that Roughing It is also a transcendent work. Like the journey that led Clemens to Twain, Roughing It takes readers to places he thought were completely covered by less important writers before finally discovering Twain''s lesser-loved masterpiece.

The Originals: The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn
In The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, a sequel to The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, Huck escapes from the clutches of his abusive drunk father ‘Pap’, and the ‘sivilizing’ guardian Widow Douglas.

Together, they embark on an exciting journey along the Mississippi River, meeting different people and participating in their unusual lives. With time, Huck finds himself in a moral dilemma over societal values and his own friendship with Jim. First published in 1884, the book was an indictment of racism, class prejudices and identity conflicts. Regarded as one of the Great American Novels, this timeless classic by Mark Twain is also among the first in American literature to be written in regional English, relying on scathing satire, folksy humour, colloquial speech and coarse language.
