The essays in this volume mirror the changing moods of the United States literary"The difference between the right word and the almost right word is the difference between lightning and the lightning bug."
How effectively Mark Twain loosed the lightning of his pen is attested by the mass and variety of critical interpretation that has surrounded his work in recent decades. The essays in this volume mirror the changing moods of the United States literary climate, from the search for the "usable past" of the 1920s, through the social realism of the '30s, to the psychological symbolism of the' 40s and' 50s.

Some of the essays included are:
Mark Twain's Humor VAN WYCK BROOKS
The Symbols of Despair BERNARD DEVOTO
As Free as Any Cretur LESLIE FIEDLER
Huck and Oliver W. H. AUDEN...more
