How Many Books Has Mark Twain Written

why did they take “the n word” out of Mark Twain’s books.

they take that word out of classic books but they allow any modern rap artist to say it as many times as they want.it seems pretty stupid to me

“They” are idiots. I read Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn when I was in high school. I read them to learn comprehension of the classics and to learn how to write great books. All of these years later, I only remember N***** Jim because someone has a stake in stirring the racial pot all of the time. What I remember continuously about Twain’s books is how good they were. I own his collected works which I have reread several times. I also immediately by any other stories by him I stumble across.The books were not racist when he wrote them. They were a reflection of the times he lived in. I’ve learned a lot more about history from Twain than those who would call him racist have learned from all of the sources in their lives.

mark twain help…..

ok i finish reading “the prince and the pauper” written by our great american satirist “MARK TWAIN”ok my book report is due next next week i need to find as many things possible satirized by mark twain….any examples?….can you please give me what chapter its on or quote that justifies…

The entire story is a satire. The book is a social and political satire. Particularly compelling in its condemnation of the inequality that existed between the classes in Tudor England. An effect of the story is to satirize the artful exercise of power by a king – the political satire.The next paragraph is from:http://www.diesel-ebooks.com/cgi-bin/ite…Rich with surprise and hilarious adventure, The Prince And The Pauper is a delightful satire of England’s romantic past and a joyful boyhood romp filled with the same tongue-in-cheek irony that sparked the best of Mark Twain’s tall tales. Two boys, one an urchin from London’s filthy lanes, the other a prince born in a lavish palace, unwittingly trade identities. Thus a bedraggled “Prince of Poverty” discovers that his private dreams have all the come true — while a pampered Prince of Wales finds himself tossed into a rough-and-tumble world of squalid beggars and villainous thieves. Originally written as a story for children, The Prince And The Pauper is a classic novel for adults as well — through its stinging attack on the ageless human folly of attempting to measure true worth by outer appearances.This site might help you with the report.

How is the American Dream presented in the Book Huck Finn by Mark Twain.

writing a paper and i have to include this book.

Although Twain wrote Huckleberry Finn two decades after the Emancipation Proclamation and the end of the Civil War, America—and especially the South—was still struggling with racism and the aftereffects of slavery. By the early 1880s, Reconstruction, the plan to put the United States back together after the war and integrate freed slaves into society, had hit shaky ground, although it had not yet failed outright. As Twain worked on his novel, race relations, which seemed to be on a positive path in the years following the Civil War, once again became strained. The imposition of Jim Crow laws, designed to limit the power of blacks in the South in a variety of indirect ways, brought the beginning of a new, insidious effort to oppress. The new racism of the South, less institutionalized and monolithic, was also more difficult to combat. Slavery could be outlawed, but when white Southerners enacted racist laws or policies under a professed motive of self-defense against newly freed blacks, far fewer people, Northern or Southern, saw the act as immoral and rushed to combat it.Although Twain wrote the novel after slavery was abolished, he set it several decades earlier, when slavery was still a fact of life. But even by Twain’s time, things had not necessarily gotten much better for blacks in the South. In this light, we might read Twain’s depiction of slavery as an allegorical representation of the condition of blacks in the United States even after the abolition of slavery. Just as slavery places the noble and moral Jim under the control of white society, no matter how degraded that white society may be, so too did the insidious racism that arose near the end of Reconstruction oppress black men for illogical and hypocritical reasons. In Huckleberry Finn, Twain, by exposing the hypocrisy of slavery, demonstrates how racism distorts the oppressors as much as it does those who are oppressed. The result is a world of moral confusion, in which seemingly “good” white people such as Miss Watson and Sally Phelps express no concern about the injustice of slavery or the cruelty of separating Jim from his family.By focusing on Huck’s education, Huckleberry Finn fits into the tradition of the bildungsroman: a novel depicting an individual’s maturation and development. As a poor, uneducated boy, for all intents and purposes an orphan, Huck distrusts the morals and precepts of the society that treats him as an outcast and fails to protect him from abuse. This apprehension about society, and his growing relationship with Jim, lead Huck to question many of the teachings that he has received, especially regarding race and slavery. More than once, we see Huck choose to “go to hell” rather than go along with the rules and follow what he has been taught. Huck bases these decisions on his experiences, his own sense of logic, and what his developing conscience tells him. On the raft, away from civilization, Huck is especially free from society’s rules, able to make his own decisions without restriction. Through deep introspection, he comes to his own conclusions, unaffected by the accepted—and often hypocritical—rules and values of Southern culture. By the novel’s end, Huck has learned to “read” the world around him, to distinguish good, bad, right, wrong, menace, friend, and so on. His moral development is sharply contrasted to the character of Tom Sawyer, who is influenced by a bizarre mix of adventure novels and Sunday-school teachings, which he combines to justify his outrageous and potentially harmful escapades.When Huck plans to head west at the end of the novel in order to escape further “sivilizing,” he is trying to avoid more than regular baths and mandatory school attendance. Throughout the novel, Twain depicts the society that surrounds Huck as little more than a collection of degraded rules and precepts that defy logic. This faulty logic appears early in the novel, when the new judge in town allows Pap to keep custody of Huck. The judge privileges Pap’s “rights” to his son as his natural father over Huck’s welfare. At the same time, this decision comments on a system that puts a white man’s rights to his “property”—his slaves—over the welfare and freedom of a black man. In implicitly comparing the plight of slaves to the plight of Huck at the hands of Pap, Twain implies that it is impossible for a society that owns slaves to be just, no matter how “civilized” that society believes and proclaims itself to be. Again and again, Huck encounters individuals who seem good—Sally Phelps, for example—but who Twain takes care to show are prejudiced slave-owners. This shaky sense of justice that Huck repeatedly encounters lies at the heart of society’s problems: terrible acts go unpunished, yet frivolous crimes, such as drunkenly shouting insults, lead to executions. Sherburn’s speech to the mob that has come to lynch him accurately summarizes the view of society Twain gives in Huckleberry Finn: rather than maintain collective welfare, society instead is marked by cowardice, a lack of logic, and profound selfishness.There you go. It is basically freedom and escape from society.

Who influenced Mark twain’s writing and style. With source please thanks..

“With source please.” Right. How about if YOU find a source and read it? I think that’s the whole point of this thingamabob called “education.”There are many literary biographies of Twain; your library must have one or more such books, and there are also specialized databases of literary criticism that you can access through your library’s website or its computers — ask the librarian how to do that. Make sure you’re using something written by qualified scholars, not some Wiki-wacky website written by random nobodies.

How did Mark Twain influence society/America.

How did Mark Twain influence society?I preferably need examples from The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn and on topics regarding nature being more civil than civilization, peace, or anti-slavery.

Twain was a master of sarcastic wit and humor using both to poke fun at American and the current ideas of the time. At a time when writing was an art in language and words had more then one meaning when written in the text as he used them, most of his stories have meanings at many levels.Regrettably, during the “updated” rewriting and revisions of books. The words have been dumbed down in many stories and meanings lost. If you are reading an Abridged version of the stories of Twain neither you nor you teacher will ever see the story or the humor as it was intended.As far as the stories go it would be best for you to do your own homework and actually read the book.

Who is the author you own/read the most books of.

How many books?

Being what you might call a Jane Austen junkie and owning several copies of all six of her major novels plus everything else she wrote, including letters which were not torched by the hand of her sister, Cassandra, Jane Austen would be the most accurate answer.Though I have all of Charles Dickens’ novels plus the majority of other things he wrote and have read a number of them several times, it is Jane Austen’s novels which I have read many, many times.As to number of books, Charles Dickens trumps Jane Austen.I also have collected as many books by Louisa May Alcott, Frances Hodgson Burnett, Kate Douglas Wiggin, Eleanor H. Porter and Lucy Maud Montgomery I could find. Other authors who come under the heading of owning many, in some cases all, of their works include Dean Koontz, Anthony Trollope, Elizabeth Gaskell, the Bronte sisters, Mark Twain, Rex Stout, Agatha Christie, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Ellis Peters, Mary Stewart, Phyllis A. Whitney, Victoria Holt, Vince Flynn, Rosamunde Pilcher and quite a number of others, from classics to contemporary and everything in between. (I honestly couldn’t tell you which author wins as far as number of books goes.)True confessions of a book addict. 🙂

Was Mark Twain racist. Or was it his books.

We’ve been reading “The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn” in our college English class. Having to perform a debate about how it is racist, we’ve been trying to figure out whether Twain himself was racist or if it was just his books. How would this be defended?

neither Mark Twain or his books were racist. He wrote his books during a time where slaves were still around. it’s just like people are talking about banning ‘huck finn’ because it used the n-word too many times, so what it’s just a word!

what does mark twain write about and how does he write about it.

Mark Twain ~ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mark_TwainWriting:OverviewTwain began his career writing light, humorous verse but evolved into a chronicler of the vanities, hypocrisies and murderous acts of mankind. At mid-career, with Huckleberry Finn, he combined rich humor, sturdy narrative and social criticism. Twain was a master at rendering colloquial speech and helped to create and popularize a distinctive American literature built on American themes and language. Many of Twain’s works have been suppressed at times for various reasons. Adventures of Huckleberry Finn has been repeatedly restricted in American high schools, not least for its frequent use of the word “******”, which was a common term when the book was written.Unfortunately, a complete bibliography of his works is nearly impossible to compile because of the vast number of pieces written by Twain (often in obscure newspapers) and his use of several different pen names. Additionally, many believe that a large portion of his speeches and lectures have been lost or simply were not written down; thus, the collection of Twain’s works is an ongoing process. Researchers have rediscovered published material by Twain as recently as 1995.[27]Many paragraphs of useful information are found under these headingsEarly journalism and traveloguesTom Sawyer and Huckleberry FinnLater writingfor example:Pen namesTwain used different pen names before deciding on Mark Twain. He signed humorous and imaginative sketches Josh until 1863. Additionally, he used the pen name Thomas Jefferson Snodgrass for a series of humorous letters.[79]He maintained that his primary pen name came from his years working on Mississippi riverboats, where two fathoms, a depth indicating safe water for passage of boat, was measured on the sounding line. A fathom is a maritime unit of depth, equivalent to two yards (1.8 m); twain is an archaic term for “two”. The riverboatman’s cry was mark twain or, more fully, by the mark twain, meaning “according to the mark [on the line], [the depth is] two [fathoms]”, that is, “there are 12 feet (3.7 m) of water under the boat and it is safe to pass”.Twain claimed that his famous pen name was not entirely his invention. In Life on the Mississippi, he wrote:Captain Isaiah Sellers was not of literary turn or capacity, but he used to jot down brief paragraphs of plain practical information about the river, and sign them “MARK TWAIN”, and give them to the New Orleans Picayune. They related to the stage and condition of the river, and were accurate and valuable; … At the time that the telegraph brought the news of his death, I was on the Pacific coast. I was a fresh new journalist, and needed a nom de guerre; so I confiscated the ancient mariner’s discarded one, and have done my best to make it remain what it was in his hands—a sign and symbol and warrant that whatever is found in its company may be gambled on as being the petrified truth; how I have succeeded, it would not be modest in me to say.[80]Twain’s version of the story regarding his nom de plume has been questioned by biographer George Williams III,[81] the Territorial Enterprise newspaper,[82] and Purdue University’s Paul Fatout.[83] which claim that mark twain refers to a running bar tab that Twain would regularly incur while drinking at John Piper’s saloon in Virginia City, Nevada.ME!.

How many books did Mark Twain write.

Just books please.

He wrote 28 books for sure….as well as a lot of short stories. I’m not sure if he won any awards but I’ll look into it for you.okay so I checked and I can’t seem to get anything about awards. However he has had a lot of stuff dedicated to him and what not. You can check this website out if you want:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mark_Twain

  11. Mark Twain wrote about lots of things. Many of his books were autobigraphical, like Life on the Mississippi and Roughing It. Others were fiction, like Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn. He also wrote letters, short stories, and essays. His style is generally said to be humorous and satirical. You’ll find out lots about him if you look up his name.

  13. WRITINGS BY THE AUTHOR:This almost makes me lose any hope for the future. You can’t change classic fiction and ever hope to understand it or the times in which it was written. A little change here and a little change there and entire meanings can be changed. Look at the public school system of today and the teaching of history. By changing words and dropping the presentation of some events, our youths perspective of what we have come from becomes warped. This is propaganda changing things to fit some idiot’s view of the world.

  14. It’s such a difficult question. For instance, will future generations judge us badly because gays aren’t allowed to get married? Will they think those laws barbaric, and think lowly of us? Perhaps. None the less, Twain was very liberal for his day, for a southern man. He had some stereotypes he held about African Americans, just as did composer Stephen Foster, and other artistic minded people of the day. None the less, what looks backwards today, was often foreward for it’s day. So, I try not to judge previous generations too harshly…. But, I don’t make infallible heroes out of them either.

  17. I enjoy books by Bill Bryson such as “A Short History of Nearly Everything”.It’s ridiculous. It takes from the authenticity of the writing. If you read the books you would understand that that was intertwined in the morality of the message he was conveying.

  18. Of course, the hip hop comparison really doesn’t hold water at all. It’s obviously not analogous for a white person to use the n-word and for a black person to use the n-word. And there is a certain denial present in anyone who seems to think that Huckleberry Finn is this totally progressive, anti-racist work; it humanizes slaves, but Jim still conforms to black minstrel show stereotypes of the era.Although Twain wrote Huckleberry Finn two decades after the Emancipation Proclamation and the end of the Civil War, America—and especially the South—was still struggling with racism and the aftereffects of slavery. By the early 1880s, Reconstruction, the plan to put the United States back together after the war and integrate freed slaves into society, had hit shaky ground, although it had not yet failed outright. As Twain worked on his novel, race relations, which seemed to be on a positive path in the years following the Civil War, once again became strained. The imposition of Jim Crow laws, designed to limit the power of blacks in the South in a variety of indirect ways, brought the beginning of a new, insidious effort to oppress. The new racism of the South, less institutionalized and monolithic, was also more difficult to combat. Slavery could be outlawed, but when white Southerners enacted racist laws or policies under a professed motive of self-defense against newly freed blacks, far fewer people, Northern or Southern, saw the act as immoral and rushed to combat it.Also author, with G.

  20. Anyway, I’d say that it’s probably a misguided effort, but I’m not morally offended like some people seem to be. If it was the government doing the censoring, that would be one thing, but this just isn’t important in the same way. I think anyone should be allowed to put whatever they want into their works of art, barring hate speech, I guess (though the white fetishization of the n-word is obviously a little off-putting), but no private publisher has an obligation to publish anything they don’t want to publish.(With Lee Nelson) Huck Finn and Tom Sawyer among the Indians (novel unfinished by Mark Twain completed by Lee Nelson), Council Press (Springville, UT), 2003.

  22. By that consideration, neither the book, nor the language was racist.How could you possibly argue that either Twain or his books are racist? Granted, he was a product of his times, but he was a vocal supporter of abolition and emancipation for blacks and civil rights for all minority groups in the United States, including women. You can’t make the mistake of assuming that all of his characters speak his beliefs. That’s ridiculous. His books weren’t “racist” either. He uses his characters and the narrative to illustrate a period of time in this country that he considered a great source of shame. His characters are reflections of their time period and the attitudes prevalent then. The point isn’t that Huck treats Jim like a slave and uses the word “n*gger” when referring to Jim… The point is that he learns in the end that Jim is a man.

  23. I’m doing a debate on whether your teacher is an idiot professor, or he just does the same thing idiots do. Which is see things that aren’t there. How would this be defended?So far I haven’t followed Henny Youngman’s advice, nor have I stopped drinking

  24. I don’t mind new translations of the Bible as long as they are true to the original Greek and Hebrew. The question for me is; “Does the new book change the original meaning?” The new words used seem to water down Mark Twain’s original meaning so censorship may be behind the changes.

At the same time, this decision comments on a system that puts a white man’s rights to his “property”—his slaves—over the welfare and freedom of a black man. In implicitly comparing the plight of slaves to the plight of Huck at the hands of Pap, Twain implies that it is impossible for a society that owns slaves to be just, no matter how “civilized” that society believes and proclaims itself to be. Again and again, Huck encounters individuals who seem good—Sally Phelps, for example—but who Twain takes care to show are prejudiced slave-owners. This shaky sense of justice that Huck repeatedly encounters lies at the heart of society’s problems: terrible acts go unpunished, yet frivolous crimes, such as drunkenly shouting insults, lead to executions. Sherburn’s speech to the mob that has come to lynch him accurately summarizes the view of society Twain gives in Huckleberry Finn: rather than maintain collective welfare, society instead is marked by cowardice, a lack of logic, and profound selfishness.Eve’s Diary Translated from the Original Ms (also see below), illustrated by Lester Ralph, Harper, 1906.Letters from the Sandwich Islands Written for the “Sacramento Union,” edited by G.

The publisher is choosing to do this on its own. Rappers, who are completely different from publishers, also choose to do what they do of their own free will. I guess I dont’ get your argument because I’m not even sure how you can compare the two and say one group is allowed to do it and not the other. No government power is making any of these choices. The publisher isn’t being pressured by anyone to “whitewash” this book. In fact, most people agree that it shouldn’t be changed. Again, I don’t get your comparison to rap. I’ve heard that this one publisher has decided to remove the N-word to get the book back on high school reading lists.

  42. Neither I’d guess it was what a 150 years ago? Blacks were slaves or servants at best and considered property something we don’t think now. His books were written at a time when it was not racist to call a black a ******, it was not what it is now. The whole racist thing for a book this old is nothing other than stupid. This is a comparison of apples and oranges, nothing more. I’m sorry they are doing this, it just perpetuates unadulterated crap. Pick a side and make your argument, nothing else to do. And we wonder what is wrong with our education system in the States.
