Summary
"Mark Twain's Literary Resources opens a revealing window on the creative mind of Mark Twain by identifying, locating, and (in many cases) discussing thousands of reading materials-books, stories, essays, poems, newspapers, magazines, and more-that informed and influenced the great writer. The publication of Volume 1 of a three-volume set by internationally respected Twain scholar Dr. Alan Gribben represents 45 years of research. His study is unparalleled, an audactious undertaking that will be the foundation for scholarship about Twain for years to come."--Provided by publisher
