Mark Twain (Modern Novelists) by Peter B. Messent

This book provides an overview of Mark Twains work and a close critical analysis of his major texts, and includes chapters on Huckleberry Finn, A Connecticut Yankee and Puddnhead Wilson. Using recent cultural and literary theory to re-examine Twains travel-writing and fictions, and written in a refreshingly jargon-free and accessible manner, Peter Messent begins by discussing one of Twains oddest but most comic short stories, The Stolen White Elephant. This tale of an elephant on the loose, causing havoc wherever it goes, and hunted by the logical but myopic Detective Blunt, serves as a revealing point of entry to Twains narratives as a whole, with their stress on shifting perspective, incongruity and constant undecideability.
