Mark Twain Was a Genius

” All Europe and America were feverishly scrambling for money…Money-lust has always existed but not in the history of the world was it ever…a madness until your time and mine. This lust has rotted these nations; it has made them hard, sordid, ungentle, dishonest, oppressive.” Mark Twain

Try and find Huckleberry Finn before it was edited last year. Visit a used  or independent bookstore.  If you decided to read this masterpiece, read the prologue and epilogue. So many people by-pass it, believing it’s a waste. It’s there for a reason. It’s there to shade light on the author, his life, and his perspective on the world. We all know or have met people like the characters in his stories. Denying this would be unjust.
