Mark Twain’s Guide To Audacious Sarcasm, Volume 1

By Lowell Smith

Many have called Samuel Longhorne Clemens’ cantankerous alter ego, Mark Twain, the greatest American humorist-philosopher of his age-if not of all times. With his wry observations and forthright humor-unleashed in his particularly pithy paragraphs-Mark Twain became one of the most prolific satirists in American literature.
The New York Times, in 1910,,called him America’s most quoted author.
Few authors have captivated the American penchant for curiosity like Samuel Longhorne Clemens. Many have called his cantankerous alter ego, Mark Twain, the greatest American humorist-philosopher of his age-if not of all times. With his wry observations and forthright humor-unleashed in his particularly pithy paragraphs-Mark Twain became one of the most prolific satirists in American literature.
The New York Times editorial, reporting of his death on April 22, 1910, said. “ He has been quoted in common conversation oftener, perhaps, than any of his fellow-countrymen, including Benjamin Franklin and Lincoln.
In 1909, Mark Twain is quoted as saying, “ I came in with Haley’s Comet in 1835. It is coming again next year, and I expect to go out with it. It will be the greatest disappointment of my life if I don’t go out with Haley’s Comet. The Almighty has said, no doubt: ‘Now here are these two unaccountable freaks; they came in together, they must go out together.”
His prediction was accurate-Mark Twain died of a heart attack on April 21, 1910, one day after the comet’s closest approach to earth.
In Mark Twain’s Guide to Audacious Sarcasm-volume 1, editor Lowell Smith has assembled twenty of the classic cantankerous tales and wry observations of Mark Twain’s celestial career.
