    A fantastic look into the life of Mark Twain He was clever and witty but not always wise The man was a gambler at heart I saw the monster type writer that he invested huge amounts of money in at the museumhome in Hartford Connecticut He had lots of good ideas but was ahead of his time That type writer just about ruined him financially Publishers stole his royalties by publishing his books in Canada and Great Britain but never paying him for his work In politics he took a stand against slaveryracism in his novel Huckleberry Finn and opposed the Spanish American War in the Philippines These were his greatest accomplishments in life I loved the book and all the details that made it worthwhile reading

    This book is based on the documentary film of the same name directed by Ken Burns It's a great overview of Samuel Clemens's life It does a good job describing his life but I've always believed you can learn about a person by reading his or her own works than by reading descriptions provided by others and filtered through their own biases I am looking forward reading of Clemens's original works In some ways he was a man born before his time in other ways he would not have fit in with later generations This allowed him to speak his mind and sometimes very bluntly without getting himself into trouble; in fact it seemed to endear him to his admiring public He was outspoken about the abolition of slavery the emancipation of women and that the United States had no business establishing itself as an empire and sticking its nose in other countries' business especially when it brought power to the federal government lined the pockets of greedy politicians and business men an created deep undercurrents to be taken advantage of by overreaching expansionists and religious fanatics I am anti imperialist I am opposed to having the eagle put its talons on any other land he said This nation is like all the others that have been spewed upon the earth—ready to shout for any cause that will tickle its vanity or fill its pocket What a hell of a heaven it will be when they get all these hypocrites assembled there

    This was a lot better book than I was expecting Very humorous and interesting

    I really enjoyed listening to the audio about this amazing man Now I want to get the hard copy and check out all the photos There were unabridged excerpts of Twain's work read throughout the narrative of his life A very informative and enjoyable book As Hemingway says he is like an American Shakespeare a literary genius to be studied through time Samuel Clemens lived a life of great hardships and exorbitant luxuries He visited all seven continents and was well received at lectures where he used his uniue sense of humor to tell tales of the social status of all men He made you realize that acceptance and tolerance was the answer to finding peace and advocated euality for all Even though some of his books have been banned for racist language and situations the hidden message was to open your eyes and look at what was happening Having been raised by a slave owner he learned from his father and society’s views that African Americans were wrongly persecuted and that the soul of man needed self examination He felt empathy for those who suffered and befriended many who were treated as white man’s commodities He based his characters on the lives of those who struggled to exist and gave us all a look at the inhumane treatment being inflicted because of Deep South prejudices He loved children and their innocence and he also had a great affection for cats He was a flamboyant character himself and despite tragedies in his life and periods of poverty he continued to remain positive living each day to its fullest Born November 30 1835 and died April 21 1910 he came in with Haley’s comet and went out with the return of the comet 75 years later

    Ah Mr Clemens or should I say Twain? What a complicated man you were What a life you led What a mark you left The story of Samuel Clemen's life is filled with laughter awe and sadness But unless you dig a little you don't realize what humanistic ualities he received as he matured There is part of Mr Clemen's life that parallels that of Oskar Schindler While early in life Clemen's showed a desire for money and selfish uests he began arguing against the inhumanity of slavery This is evident in books like Huckleberry Finn but it is also shown in a real life manuscript he sent to the Atlantic Monthly The manuscript was about his sister in law's cook who lived slavery He was so moved by her words he printed it word for word in the hope that others would feel what he hadYou will have touching moments as letters to his daughter's are shared along with the grief he felt from losing 3 of his 4 children You will understand his self struggles with God as he uestions these deaths along with all that is wrong on earth You will wonder how he was able to bounce back from every negative event that happens in his life just when you think he has fully given up But you will marvel at the path that was placed before him from his Halley's comet birth right through to his death 75 years later when Halley's made it's next pass to scoop him to the heavens82 out of 100

    Enjoyed it Personally though I am of the opinion that reading Sam's books letter's and other writings and coming to my own conclusions would be fulfilling than the reading of this condensed biography was The writers did a great job in condensing the long life and writings of Samuele ClementsMark Twain into one book but much was just a retelling of some of his books and the author's opinion which I am mostly in agreement with of Mark Twain's impact on the with regard to American literature and the subject of racism and importantly slavery I suppose in having read most his books and some of the collections of letters that I was looking for some insight into his life and history and though the book offered some of this it did not approach my ideal expectations For example you won't find mentioned in the entire book the word 'Mugwump' So to it credit you can tell it's very well written and researched As for the 'hard core' Twain fans the book is not very significant in it's offering specific or esoteric information especially if you've read most or all of his works

  7. says:

    I just can't get enough about Mark Twain This is a good start though Such a complex American whose voice remains relevant today should be reuired reading for all I love Sam Clemens in all his forms Small town boy riverboat captain lecturer comedian family man cat lover world traveler and most of all himself complete with flawsMy only complaint if it can be called that was that I wanted examples of his writing I guess that I will have to remedy that on my own

  8. says:

    This biography of a great author does exactly what is should it inspires the reader to want to know even about the author and it especially inspires the reader to read or reread some of his works The second half of the biography covering Twain's immense successes and spectacular failures business and family without excusing the man of his many faults is most welcome

    biography companion to Ken Burns documentary enjoyed audio Video was too drawn out

  10. says:

    This illustrated biography is the companion volume to the nearly four hour documentary film directed by Ken Burns Its 275 illustrations and photographs bring to mind and eye the life of both the man Samuel Langhorne Clemens and the legendary figure of Mark Twain with which it is forever fused The varied takes and rich writing of the book's two authors Geoffrey C Ward and Dayton Duncan coupled with essays and interviews from such major contributors as Russell Banks Jocelyn Chadwick Ron Powers John Boyer and Hal Holbrook make this at least the eual of three or four good books in one If you take this fine book and the film it goes with add to the two the masterful biography brought forth by Ron Powers and with all these in hand sign on to voyage into the two massive volumes of Twain's Autobiography already released while you also await with many of us the arrival of its third you will have made your way to one of the longest unbroken and most formative strands found in American life language and literature What Twain lived his way into especially in his difficult years at the end cannot be said to have finished unfolding He once said he was an optimist who didn't arrive If his last words spoken to Clara after taking her hand were Good bye followed by If we meet then they suggest someone still en route Endings are not always also finishings With lives especially great ones few ever are Mark Twain's life remains a truly great vital ongoing and irreplaceable American one of these GR
