about

In this book, the author discusses Mark Twain's treatment of Shakespeare as a key factor in Twain's self-understanding and artistic development. The extensive and diverse treatment is broken down into four categories: biography, comedy, history, and tragedy. Berret demonstrates the influence of Hamlet on the classic Huckleberry Finn as well as the broader influences of Shakespeare's authorship in Twain's unique literary humor and personae.
Anthony J. Berret is Assistant Professor of English at St. Joseph's University in Philadelphia.
