The Innocents Abroad: Or the New Pilgrim's Progress: Wordsworth Classics

Autor Mark Twain Stuart Hutchinson
en Limba Engleză Paperback – apr 2010
'Who could read the programme for the excursion without longing to make one of the party?'
So Mark Twain acclaims his voyage from New York City to Europe and the Holy Land in June 1867. His adventures produced "The Innocents Abroad," a book so funny and provocative it made him an international star for the rest of his life. He was making his first responses to the Old World - to Paris, Milan, Florence, Venice, Pompeii, Constantinople, Sebastopol, Balaklava, Damascus, Jerusalem, Nazareth, and Bethlehem. For the first time he was seeing the great paintings and sculptures of the 'Old Masters'. He responded with wonder and amazement, but also with exasperation, irritation, disbelief. Above all he displayed the great energy of his humour, more explosive for us now than for his beguiled contemporaries.

From his humorous stories, The Innocents Abroad (1869) and Roughing It in 1872, to his appearance as a riverboat captain in Life on the Mississippi in 1883, through his adventure stories of childhood, he got a worldwide audience, mainly for Tom Sawyer (1876) and Huckleberry Finn (1885), known as the masterpieces of American fiction. The ironic A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court in 1889. His eldest daughter passed away in 1896, his wife in 1904, and another daughter in 1909. He expressed his depression about the human character in such late works as the after-death published Letters from the Earth (1962).
