Mark Twain: How To Celebrate?

Today marks the 100th anniversary of Mark Twain’s death. To celebrate you might want to read one of the many recent articles about his life and impact. Here is but a small sampling.

You might want to read one of his short stories. I’m rereading, “Some Fables for Good Old Boys and Girls,” in three parts: “How the Animals of the Wood Sent Out a Scientific Expedition”, “How the Animals of the Wood Completed Their Scientific Labors,” and Part Three for which Twain did not provide a subtitle but did provide a punch line. Those who grapple with ancient texts will particularly enjoy Professor Woodlouse’s translation of the “Mayoritish Stone,” aka “King Stone.”
Update: Added “Twain’s Heavily Lawyered Last Words,” from the New York Times.
