Summary
This book considers first the problems of style and structure Mark Twain faced at the outset of his career, and then traces his handling of these problems in nine of his principal works. Since questions of technique necessarily involve questions of meaning, I have dealt also with his ethical ideas. The inquiry leads ultimately to the consideration of how his writing reveals a conflict between the dominant culture of his day and an emergent attitude associated with the vernacular language of the native American humorists. - Preface
