Overview

Mark Twain on the Damned Human Race is a magnificent collection of Mark Twain's topical writings, mainly and most eloquently concerned with the themes of social justice, the American civilization in its dawning age of imperialism, and the corrupt nature of man in general. Many of Twain's greatest essays are included here, especially "To the Person Sitting in the Darkness," "as Regards Patriotism," "The War Prayer," "The Unites States of Lyncherdom," and "Banquet for a Senator." In all the essays n this volume Twain speaks as a man outraged by the social, moral, and religious corruption he see around him. These essays open the floodgates of his anger, his brilliant satire, his devastating wit, and his deep concern for man's fate. But Twain, great artist that he was, always managed to be hilariously funny in the midst of his anger and despair. He always managed to laugh to keep from crying.
