Review Text

The Gilded Age, says Justin D. Kaplan in his covering introduction, its "the most savage satire on democracy that American literature has to offer." Published in 1873, it was Mark Twain's first assay at sustained fiction, written in collaboration with Hartford newspaperman and essayist Charles Dudley Warner. This new edition is set from the original corrected second printing of the first edition. Of interest as germinal Twain and Americana. (Kirkus Reviews)show more
