Synopsis

The text of this Norton Critical Edition is based, with typesetting errors corrected, on the first U.S. edition (1876), the most authoritative of the editions published in Twain’s lifetime.

“Backgrounds and Contexts” provides students with the standard source materials often cited by critics—Twain’s stories of Good and Bad Boys, his Boy’s Manuscript, his correspondence with William Dean Howells, and his 1870 letter to Will Bowen. This section also includes lesser-known but valuable contextual materials, among them Twain’s journalistic description of school exercise and the discussion of Perry Davis’ Pain Killer and other nineteenth-century nostrums.

“Criticism” includes interpretations by William Dean Howells, Hamlin L. Hill, Judith Fetterley, Alan Gribben, Glenn Hendler, Carter Revard, and Susan R. Gannon.

A Chronology and Selected Bibliography are also included.
