"A collaborative project assembled by scholars who have played crucial roles in the recent explosion of Twain criticism, The Cambridge Companion to Mark Twain offers new and thought-provoking essays on an author of enduring preeminence in the American canon. Accessible enough to interest both experienced specialists and students new to Twain criticism, the essays examine Twain from a wide variety of critical perspectives and include timely reflections by major critics on the hotly debated dynamics of race and slavery perceptible throughout his writing." "The volume includes a chronology of Twain's life and a list of suggestions for further reading, to provide the student or general reader with sources for background as well as additional information."--BOOK JACKET.
