  • "H.L. Mencken wrote of Mark Twain, 'I believe that he was the true father of our national literature, the first genuinely American artist of the blood royal.' Father, Mark Twain is. And brother, friend, and wise old grandpa. But no offense to Mr. Mencken: Sam'l Clemens is American and there ain't no royalty around here 'ceptin maybe the Duke or some one like that. Unless it's the Prince and the Pauper or King Arthur in Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court. "Hank the Yankee asks, 'You know about transmigration of souls; do you know about transposition of epochs -- and bodies?' "'Wit ye well, I saw it done.' Then, after a pause, added: 'I did it myself.'

  • "A little volume in the Fiction, Fact, and Fancy Series. One of the attractions in reading Mark Twain is that one never knows when he may be coming upon something serious. Though laughter rules, for the most part, now and then the jester puts aside his bells and the tragic passage comes upon one with striking force. There are seven stories in the book and the fun is at times stupendous. We recommend that it be read at seven sittings." -- Atlantic Monthly, Oct., 1892
