Сыскные подвиги Тома Сойера

Описание:
Все произведения американского писателя Марка Твена - забавные, забавные и при этом очень живые и близкие к реальности. Большая часть сюжетов автор черпал из собственного жизненного опыта, и почти все герои также списаны с натуры.

Tom Sawyer Abroad

Description: The irrepressible Tom Sawyer and Huck Finn, always looking for trouble, find it again in Tom Sawyer Abroad, Twain’s once-celebrated but now little-known sequel to his classics The Adventures of Tom Sawyer and The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn.
Tom and Huck have both ranged the length of the Mississippi, but, as Huck declares, “Do you reckon Tom Sawyer was satisfied after all them adventures?….No, he wasn't. It only just pisoned him for more.” So the two boys head off to see the unveiling of a futuristic airship—only to be kidnapped by its mad inventor! But when the inventor goes overboard in a storm, it’s up to Tom and Huck to take control of the airship as it heads out over the seething ocean toward the unknown. Yonder they will encounter robbers, lions, Bedouins, and the perils of the Sahara in their very own Arabian adventure.

Show More Publisher Marketing: The year 2010 marks the one hundredth anniversary of Twain's death. In celebration of this important milestone, here, finally, is Mark Twain's uncensored autobiography, only now free to be published in its entirety. After dozens of false starts, at last Twain embarked on his final plan for telling the story of his life. His innovative notion -- to "talk only about the thing which interests you for the moment" -- meant his thoughts could range freely. The strict instruction that many of these texts remain unpublished for one hundred years meant that when they came out, he would be "dead, and unaware, and indifferent," and that he was therefore free to speak frankly. This volume presents Mark Twain's authentic and unsuppressed voice, brimming with humor, ideas, and opinions, and speaking clearly from the grave, as he intended.

The Tragedy of Pudd'nhead Wilson

The Tragedy of Pudd'nhead Wilson

Description: Two half brothers look so similar as infants that no one can tell them apart. One, the legitimate son of a rich man, is destined for a life of comfort; the other is condemned to be a slave, as he is part black. The mother of the would-be slave is also the nurse of the other boy, and to give her son the best life possible, she switches the two. Soon, the boy who is given every advantage becomes spoiled and cruel. He takes sadistic pleasure in tormenting his half brother. As they grow older, the townspeople no longer notice that the boys look similar, and they readily accept that each is born to his station. A local lawyer, David Wilson, has had a similar experience. On his first day in the village, he made an odd remark about a dog, and the townspeople gave him the condescending name of "Pudd'nhead". Although he was a young, intelligent lawyer, he is unable to live down this name and toils in obscurity for over 20 years. Finally, he is presented with a complex murder trial and is given the chance to prove himself to the townspeople and shake his unjust label. This complex murder mystery is a psychological study that explores how perceptions shape character. Twain combines biting satire with his trademark scenes of farce and levity.

Bummel durch Europa: Schweiz

Description: 1Im zweiten Teil unserer Edition geht die Reise durch die Schweiz. Zwar liegt das, was Mark Twain dort beschreibt, gut 120 Jahre zurück, aber manches von dem oft willkürlich Überzeichneten hat durchaus Wiedererkennungswert: So nimmt er die Irrungen und Wirrungen einer Gletscherwanderung, exzessiv jodelnde Helvetier und verlauste Pensionsbetten aufs Korn. Twain spart nicht an grotesken Szenen, an münchhausenschen Bravourstücken und Eulenspiegeleien. Twain hat diese Reisen auch tatsächlich unternommen - zwar nicht mit seinem Buch-Begleiter Harries, sondern mit seiner Familie.Die Reisebeschreibungen zu Italien folgen dann in der dritten und letzten Staffel im nächsten Programm.

The Best Short Stories of Mark Twain

The Best Short Stories of Mark Twain

Description: Mark Twain's writing has been wildly popular ever since he put pen to paper, and now its popularity has continued into the new century.Mark Twain was well known as a great American short-story writer as well as a novelist and humorist. This collection of eighteen of his best short stories, the well known and the lesser known, displays his best-known side, as a master of Western humor and frontier realism, with little of the pessimism that surfaced in his later works.Beginning the collection is "Jim Smiley and His Jumping Frog," which was Twain's first successful story, published in 1865 in the New York Saturday Press. This comic version of an old folk tale became the title story of The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County and Other Sketches, published in 1867, which was what established him as a leading American humorist.Twain's most distinctive work sums up the tradition of Western humor and frontier realism. Beginning as a journalist, he assumed the method and point of view of popular literature in the U.S., maintaining the personal anecdotal style that he also used in his comic lectures.These stories display Twain's place in American letters as a master writer in the authentic native idiom. He was exuberant and irreverent, but underlying the humor was a vigorous desire for social justice and a pervasive equalitarian attitude.

The Stolen White Elephant

The Stolen White Elephant


Description: While many elements of civilized culture provided much comic fodder for Mark Twain, detectives occupied a portion of his observations and writing for a time. The story of the Stolen White Elephant, though entirely preposterous, is rumored to be modeled after real life efforts of an actual police department who misplaced the body of a deceased victim. This audio story will leave you laughing out loud.
