Originally of Missouri, Now of the Universe: Mark Twain and the World
Shelley Fisher Fishkin
An unlikely candidate to achieve a world readership at the start of his career, Twain went on to leave his indelible mark on world as well as American literature. Noted Twain scholar Shelley Fisher Fishkin (The Oxford Mark Twain and The Mark Twain Anthology), professor of English, Stanford University, will look at Twain in a global context, exploring what he learned from his travels and what readers and writers around the world learned from him.
