free download The Best Short Stories of Mark Twain Mark Twain ã 3 summary free download ì eBook or Kindle ePUB ã Mark Twain Is sure to step on a dry twig There may be a hundred handier things to step on but that wouldn't satisfy Cooper Cooper reuires him to turn out and find a dry twig; and if he can't do it go and borrow one It's difficult to imagine anyone else writing in uite this style which is why Twain's legacy only continues to grow. A lot of great stuff here I especially loved Old Times on the Mississippi which shored up my recent ambition to become a riverboat pilot first inspired by John McPhee s riverboating piece in The New Yorker The Jumping Frog was a lot funnier than I remembered once I got to the stuff about the dog and Flies Dan l flies and was capped by the French translation and Twain s indignant French to English retranslation absolutely French As She Is Spoke Then on the subway I discovered that I m a laugh out loud sucker for a glass eye joke OK not funny But there I am And there are all the funny layers of The Story of a Speech though I think he got me with the first Longfellow joke But thenmature Twain got a pondering about truth and hypocrisy and violence and the cruel selfish pettiness of humans I m all for pondering that kind of stuff and I admire his sternness with regard to human frailty but it was a shame that in his morality stories he often suppressed his humor and style in favor of a prosy even grossly sentimental mode He could not always work up to his own standards Feni Cooper s Literary Offenses notwithstanding And sometimes he failed even his own moral imperatives sometimes he didn t think as hard as a writer as uncompromising intelligent and scrupulous as he was should have done The United States of Lyncherdom his anti lynching polemic is almost unbearably flawed Reason 1 why lynching is wrong The notoriety attached to lynchings will encourage addled attention starved black men to go around raping and murdering white women Cringe cringe cringe even while Twain goes on to uphold the rule of law mourn for the families of lynched men and decry the cowardice ignorance and urges toward conformity that turn white men into lynch mobs And cringe cringe cringe all through his anti war anti imperialist and anti missionary polemics all ultimately leaning toward the side of the angels but my God if they don t all show their own traces of corn pone opining I suppose though that these contradictions in his writing and thought the same kind as those that appear in Huck Finn not only are inextricably tied up with but also underscore the importance of what Twain achieved at his very best

    (EBOOK / KINDLE) The Best Short Stories of Mark Twain BY Mark Twain It takes a special kind of narrator to make an audiobook by Mark Twain almost boring but Robin Field nearly manages it To be fair some of his voice characterizations when doing dialogue are uite good but his straight narration is pretty dull Still Twain's writing is generally good enough that once you get accommodated to the lackluster reading after a couple of stories or so you're able to just enjoy it on the strength of its own
