Mark Twain Humorous Short Stories On-line
This is our Mark Twain humorous short stories on-line page. We offer you a special selection of his stories that you may not be familiar with.
Naturally, Twain’s writings were influenced by his experience. He had many capacities and talents, including steamboat pilot, writer, lecturer, essayist, entrepreneur, traveler and more.
It may be that his lecturing tours influenced the style of the pieces we include here, because we think they are wonderfully suited to audio presentation. To demonstrate our point we have recorded selected pieces for you.
(A note: We have lightly edited some of the following works. Our intent is to clarify now-unfamiliar subjects and to update outdated language.)
It’s great to be American. Always has been. Enjoy!
