Publisher's Summary

Few writers are more often read, and better loved, than Charles Dickens and Samuel Langhorne Clemens - Mark Twain. Many of the characters populating their novels have become household words, cultural landmarks in their own right - Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn, David Copperfield and Oliver Twist. It is as if we have known them life-long. In this course we take a look at the lives and works of both authors, comparing and celebrating them in their use of use language, in their humor - and both, of course, are master humorists - in their evocation of character, and in their evocation and evaluation of the social world in which they find themselves.

a tale of two authors... deftly told

Professor Shutt never disappoints! His insights, passion and depth of analysis are without peer. His courses perfectly balance history, theory, and opinion, delivered in an energetic and entertaining style. I can listen to him for hours on end and frequently do. As for this course, I appreciate having learned much about Dickens and Twain, in a biographical sense, as well as adding several titles to my 'must read' list which I had heretofore​ never considered to be of interest.
