              The Curious Republic of Gondour and Other Whimsical Sketches
               

              The Curious Republic of Gondour and Other Whimsical Sketches (EPUB ebook)

              By Twain, Mark

              These short stories and sketches were written in 1870-1871 for The Galaxy and The Buffalo Express and made up out of sixteen various tales. The Curious Republic of Gondor is probably the most memorable of the group. He relates that education and prosperity influence the individua...l citizen's political clout. As revolutionary as this may first sound, either the conception or the possible negative reaction from his reader, he neglected the mention of women and their political position in this unique republic.

              Personal Recollections of Joan of Arc
               

              Personal Recollections of Joan of Arc (EPUB ebook)

              By Twain, Mark

              First appearing as an anonymous serial in "Harper's Magazine" in 1895, "Personal Recollections of Joan of Arc" was Mark Twain's final novel and was published as a complete work under his name in 1896. The novel is a stark departure from Twain's usual comic and satirical writings,... which is why Twain insisted it initially be published anonymously so that the public would take it seriously. The work is told from the perspective of a fictionalized version of Joan's page, Louis de Conte, and is divided into three parts based on Joan's life: her upbringing, her victorious time as a military commander, and her trial at Rouen. The novel is sympathetic to Joan and suggests that the English deliberately rigged the trial of Joan of Arc to convict her of witchcraft and heresy, a view that recent scholarship seems to support. Twain was deeply fascinated by Joan of Arc for much of his life. He considered "Personal Recollections of Joan of Arc" to be his best and most important work and spent nearly 15 years researching and working on the novel. The result is a work of sincere and engrossing historical fiction. This edition includes a biographical afterword.

              The Diaries of Adam and Eve
               

              The Diaries of Adam and Eve (EPUB ebook)

              By Twain, Mark

              "The Diaries and Adam and Eve" by Mark Twain was originally published as two separate stories and were later combined at Twain's request. "Extracts from Adam's Diary" was published as a stand-alone book in 1904. In 1905, "Eve's Diary" was published in the Christmas issue of "Harp...er's Bazaar" and then as a book in 1906. With his signature wit and charm, Twain tells the separate stories of humanity's biblical ancestors from the perspective of each in the form of diary entries. As one would expect from one of America's greatest humorist, Adam and Eve's diaries are funny and clever interpretations of these classic biblical tales. Adam is portrayed as lazy, cranky, and disinterested in the new, long-haired creature he suddenly finds with him in the Garden of Eden. Eve, in contrast, is enthusiastic, chatty, and brimming with curiosity about the enchanting and abundant life around them. The couple's children, Cain and Abel, also make a brief appearance, though Adam is characteristically uninterested and Eve is left to the do all the hard work. Twain's retelling of this classic and ancient myth is touching, funny, and an essential addition to the library of anyone who appreciates one of America's best storytellers. This edition includes a biographical afterword and the original illustration of F. Strothmann and Lester Ralph.
