Book Description:
Classic short humor. According to the introduction: 'Mark Twain was just as irreverent as he dared be, and 1601 reveals his richest expression of sovereign contempt for overstuffed language, genteel literature, and conventional idiocies. Later, when a magazine editor apostrophized, 'O that we had a Rabelais!' Mark impishly and anonymously submitted 1601; and that same editor, a praiser of Rabelais, scathingly abused it and the sender. In this episode, as in many others, Mark Twain, the 'bad boy' of American literature, revealed his huge delight in blasting the shams of contemporary hypocrisy. Too, there was always the spirit of Tom Sawyer deviltry in Mark's make up that prompted him, as he himself boasted, to see how much holy indignation he couldstir up in the world.'
