The Gilded Age: A Tale of Today is an 1873 book by Mark Twain and Charles Dudley Warner that satirizes greed and political corruption in post-Civil War America in the era now referred to as the Gilded Age. Although not one of Twain's best-known works, it has appeared in more than one hundred editions since its original publication. Twain and Warner originally had planned to issue the novel with illustrations by Thomas Nast. The book is remarkable for two reasons–-it is the only novel Twain wrote with a collaborator, and its title very quickly became synonymous with graft, materialism, and corruption in public life.
This edition has been formatted for your reader, with an active table of contents. It also contains illustrations and annotations, with extensive additional information about the book and the authors, including an overview, history of the collaboration, plot summary, literary significance, biographical and bibliographical information.
