Biography and appreciation
The ordeal of Mark Twain by Van Wyck Brooks( Book )

85 editions published between 1920 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,830 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Though Mark Twain is perhaps most famous for his humorous writings, and a playful tone is evident in many of his early works, the pervasive sense of pessimism in many of his later works was acknowledged by critics and fans alike. In this 1922 volume, literary critic Van Wyck Brooks explores an idea that seems to counter the popular view of the beloved author: that his career was a tragedy because his creative spirit was so damaged by his pessimism. Called "the most important and the most essential" work about Mark Twain in a New York Times piece by the eminent literary scholar William Lyon Phelps, this penetrating book casts a different light on the man popularly remembered as a comic in a white suit
