Twain, Mark: Mark Twain's Notebook. v1. 11 Mar 2013
by Mark Twain (Samuel Langhorne Clemens) (1835 – 1910)
Edited by Albert Bigelow Paine (1861 – 1937)
First published 1935
Mark Twain is most noted for his novels, The Adventures of Tom Sawyer (1876), and its sequel, Adventures of Huckleberry Finn (1885), the latter often called "the Great American Novel." Among dozens of titles, some of his works include The Innocents Abroad, A Tramp Abroad, Roughing It, Life on the Mississippi, The Prince and the Pauper, A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court, and many more.
The “Notebook” is a compilation of journal entries from many notebooks filled during 43 years of Twain's writing career, with foreword, afterword, and copious commentary by the editor, Albert Bigelow Paine, Twain’s official biographer and literary executor.
These jottings furnish a tantalizing record of Twain’s thoughts and fancies, and glimpses of the joys and sorrows of his life. Here we can observe the beginnings of the creative process – many of the seeds planted in those notebooks sprouted into published essays, travel books, and novels. An abundant supply of delightfully Twainian maxims and philosophical comments are sprinkled throughout.
Editorial Notes --
Formatted curly quotes, emdashes, diacritics, italics. Corrected numerous OCR errors, minor punctuation and spelling changes for consistency. Cross-linked chapter end-notes to source paragraphs, cross-linked chapter titles to html table of contents. Embedded decorative font for titling.
The source was a truly hideous OCR scan. I would be most grateful for reports of errors.
