    Mark Twain House
    351 Farmington Avenue, Hartford

    During his lifetime, Mark Twain was considered the preeminent American master storyteller and lecturer of humor. However, Twain’s literary achievement can easily overshadow the influences that led to his success, particularly the impact of Artemus Ward. William Dean Howells regarded Ward as “the humorist who first gave the world a taste of the humor that
    characterizes the whole American people.” While today Ward’s literary reputation is largely forgotten, he was distinctive and influential in his time. This presentation will analyze the construction of his literary style through his famously “gentle” humor. Click here for more information.
