Overview


Colorful, irreverent, romantic, skeptical, a master of comic asides, a bittersweet humorist, and an unflinching critic of human pretensions, Mark Twain speaks to us across time with verve and wisdom. On the occasion of the centennial of his death, Oxford is issuing a paperback set of our landmark 29 volume collection, The Oxford Mark Twain. In addition to gathering together most of the writings ever published by Twain in the U.S., each volume is introduced by one of our most eminent writers. Their essays combine critical insights and personal appreciations of Twain as a fellow writer. An interpretive essay by a leading scholar that sets the book in its context concludes each volume. At the heart of each is a facsimile edition of Twain's original which captures its contemporary flavor. Many include original illustrations which suggest the life and times of the books in a way that other editions cannot. This remarkable offering will be treasured by all lovers of literature.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Reviews of the Hardback Edition:

"The mammoth new Oxford Mark Twain collection makes a big and valuable splash in the already teeming sea of Twain publishing. These 29 hardback volumes, facsimile editions of works published during Twain's lifetime, make much of his vast oeuvre available to the modern reader in something fairly close to how it looked to his contemporaries."--Salon

"The Oxford Mark Twain is the uniform edition that Twain himself sought to produce in his old age...Every lending library in the English-speaking world should stock them."--The New Statesman

"The great advantage of a collected edition is that it's full of unexplored territory where you can make discoveries (or narrow escapes, in some cases). Savor the original illustrations. Each of these 29 volumes contains a reproduction of an original first edition published during Twain's lifetime. The authentic imitations are sandwiched between lively introductions by mostly famous writers, including Toni Morrison, Kurt Vonnegut, and Gore Vidal."--EntertainmentWeekly.com

Reviews of the Paperback Edition:

"Shelley Fisher Fishkin's creation, back in 1996, of her Oxford edition of Mark Twain's writing was an act of genius. This paperback reissue, time to coincide with the one-hundred-and-twenty-fifth anniversary of the publication of Huckleberry Finn, is an act of intelligent reverence." --Modern Language Review
