I must make a confession:
My favorite author is Mark Twain. He possesses unparalleled wit, wonderfully biting sarcasm, and an ability to really write magnificent stories.
Below is a list of some of his best:
1. The Prince and the Pauper
2. The Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court
3. Roughing It
4. A Literary Nightmare (Short Story)
5. The Adventures of Tom Sawyer
6. The Stolen White Elephant (Short Story)
7. The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn
8. About Barbers (Short Story)
9. Fenimore Cooper’s Literary Offenses (Short Story)
10. Pudd’nhead Wilson
Mark Twain’s quotes, sayings, and proverbs are also stellar. Definitely check them out if you’re interested!
Below are two particular quotes from Mark Twain which basically sum up the career of another author:
“I haven’t any right to criticize books, and I don’t do it except when I hate them. I often want to criticize Jane Austen, but her books madden me so that I can’t conceal my frenzy from the reader; and therefore I have to stop every time I begin. Every time I read Pride and Prejudice I want to dig her up and beat her over the skull with her own shin-bone.”
“Just the omission of Jane Austen’s books alone would make a fairly good library out of a library that hadn’t a book in it.”
One more thing. I would like to share a photo that’s somewhat bewildering.
