How's that again?

by Marie on Apr 7, 2007

Over 100 short humour stories written by the most distinguished and popular American humorists of the nineteenth century. Mark Twain has a "Compiler's Apology" in the front pages which goes like this "Those selections in this book which are from my own works were made by my two assistant compilers, not by me. This is why there are not more. -- signed Mark Twain Hartford, Jan 1, 1888. This book almost has to be read twice to get the real flavour of it. Most of the stories were written 150 to 200 years ago and you can feel the atmosphere of the nineteenth century better than hearing or reading from someone of today who thinks they know what it was like in those times. Some of the english is written in dielect and phonetical spelling is used in several stories so sometimes your have to translate it before getting the meaning. But on the whole I enjoyed the humour and came across many stories I had heard before but didn't know where they came from.
