If not our greatest writer, Twain may be our most quintessential and most protean. There's a Twain for everyone: Twain the tale teller ("Tom Sawyer"), Twain the social writer ("The Gilded Age"), Twain the great American novelist ("Huck Finn"), Twain the pessimist ("The Mysterious Stranger"). Before establishing himself as a novelist, Twain wrote narratives about working on the Mississippi, the Wild West and a pleasure cruise to the Holy Land, which is the subject of "The Innocent Abroad." It works as both travel literature and as satire of American tourists and sacred places (so many ruins). Compared to later Twain, the satire here is gentle and amused (Horatian) rather than harsh and dark (Juvenilian).
I checked out "The Innocents Abroad" in August and have no idea when it is due. I would like to renew.
I have not been receiving notices about my checked out material since I moved to the Mather on July 28th.
My new address is 450 Davis St., Evanston 60201, but I am using the same computer!
Please look into this for me!
Thank you! Penny Whiteside
