Readers of Mark Twain seldom doubt his genius, but defining that genius and locating its source continue to challenge students of American literature.

Perhaps no single critical approach can adequately assess the complex force behind Samuel Clemens and Mark Twain. This native genius, our quintessential artist, rightfully provokes a number of powerful responses, as these original essays demonstrate.
