Read full description of the books:



La vida en el Misisipi es un punto de anclaje en la obra de Mark Twain. Continuamente, el autor regresa a las márgenes del río para contar las más ingeniosas historias con una pluma mordaz e inexorable. En este libro se puede encontrar una imagen detallada de los territorios próximos al “ficticio” pueblo de St. Petersburg de Tom Sawyer, una mirada experimentada del río que recorren Huck Finn y Jim y rasgos del carácter de los vecinos de Wilson Pudd’nhead.
A partir de un agudo repaso por la geografía y la historia de la región, el autor evoca los tiempos más antiguos del río; esta operación la aprovecha para abrillantar los años de su infancia y relatar, con ironía y arrojo, los días que vivieron el auge de la navegación en el Misisipi. En 1882, cuando el autor vuelve al río, el paisaje es muy distinto y el agudo examen que hace del nuevo escenario queda también registrado en la obra.
Este libro, tan personal como espectacular, utiliza las transformaciones del río para revelar otra serie de cambios: del joven piloto romántico al adulto pragmático que viaja como pasajero; del país agreste a la tierra del mito del progreso y, quizá, de Samuel Langhorne Clemence a Mark Twain.

Read information about the author

Ebook La vida en el Misisipi read Online! Samuel Langhorne Clemens, better known by his pen name Mark Twain, was an American author and humorist. He is noted for his novels Adventures of Huckleberry Finn (1885), called "the Great American Novel", and The Adventures of Tom Sawyer (1876).

Twain grew up in Hannibal, Missouri, which would later provide the setting for Huckleberry Finn and Tom Sawyer. He apprenticed with a printer. He also worked as a typesetter and contributed articles to his older brother Orion's newspaper. After toiling as a printer in various cities, he became a master riverboat pilot on the Mississippi River, before heading west to join Orion. He was a failure at gold mining, so he next turned to journalism. While a reporter, he wrote a humorous story, "The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County," which proved to be very popular and brought him nationwide attention. His travelogues were also well-received. Twain had found his calling.

He achieved great success as a writer and public speaker. His wit and satire earned praise from critics and peers, and he was a friend to presidents, artists, industrialists, and European royalty.

However, he lacked financial acumen. Though he made a great deal of money from his writings and lectures, he squandered it on various ventures, in particular the Paige Compositor, and was forced to declare bankruptcy. With the help of Henry Huttleston Rogers, however, he eventually overcame his financial troubles. Twain worked hard to ensure that all of his creditors were paid in full, even though his bankruptcy had relieved him of the legal responsibility.

Born during a visit by Halley's Comet, he died on its return. He was lauded as the "greatest American humorist of his age", and William Faulkner called Twain "the father of American literature".
