Abstract

This article is a critical commentary on the first six volumes of The Mark Twain Papers, with the emphasis upon the three published in 1969, and upon the four volumes which have so far appeared of Leon Edel's biography of Henry James, with the emphasis upon the latest, Henry James: The Treacherous Years. Mark Twain's Correspondence with Henry Huttleston Rogers explains a relationship which has puzzled many of the humorist's admirers. Hannibal, Huck & Tom brings us, at last, all the unpublished Huck and Tom material. The Mysterious Stranger Manuscripts contains all three versions of the important fiction of the author's late years. The Paine-Duneka version of 1916 now appears as indefensible from a scholar's point of view but rather brilliantly successful as a reading version. Leon Edel's biography of James is seen as an achievement in research, whose value is undercut by its reckless use of Freudian methods of interpretation. (EW)
