University Press of America, 1993 - 216 Seiten
In this book, the author discusses Mark Twain's treatment of Shakespeare as a key factor in Twain's self-understanding and artistic development. The extensive and diverse treatment is broken down into four categories: biography, comedy, history, and tragedy. Berret demonstrates the influence of Hamlet on the classic Huckleberry Finn as well as the broader influences of Shakespeare's authorship in Twain's unique literary humor and personae.
