Mark Twain's Speeches

In his lifetime Samuel Langhorne Clemens was as well known for being Mark Twain the performer as he was for being Mark Twain the author of such works as Huckleberry Finn and Innocents Abroad<. The speeches in this volume, collected from 43 years of speechmaking all over the world, cover topics from the adventures of Stanley and Livingston to the author's brief career as a rebel, from Joan of Arc to Helen Keller to Queen Victoria, from the joys of theatre to the horrors of the German language (translated word-for-word from German, to hilarious effect).

These 103 examples of Mark Twain's genius as a speechmaker and entertainer are by turns thoughtful, dramatic, and wryly humorous, and reveal a side of Mark Twain his readers will enjoy discovering again and again.
