About Author:

Charles Neider

The name of Charles Neider is familiar to everyone in the field of Mark Twain studies Born in 1915, he did most of his work on Mark Twain between the late 1950s and the mid 1980s A man of many parts, Neider would make an interesting study in his own right He was born in Odessa, Russia, on January 18, 1915 and came to the United States in 1920 After graduating from City College of New York in 1938, he became a free lance writer and editor His writings would eventually range from a book on insects to several books on Antarctica, which he visited three times between 1969 and 1977 That remote continent was one of his chief passions, and he is probably better known for his books about it than he is for his Mark Twain books He also wrote novels and published collections of such classic writers as Washington Irving and Leo Tolstoy He spent his last years fighting against the cancer that eventually killed him and before he died, he completed Adam s Burden An Explorer s Personal Odyssey Through Prostate Cancer, which is scheduled for publication in October.While researching the Western novel he published as The Authentic Death of Hendry Jones later made into the Marlon Brando film One eyed Jacks In 1957 he published his first Mark Twain collection, The Complete Short Stories of Mark Twain.Neider followed with other collections that covered the gamut of Mark Twain writings The Complete Humorous Sketches and Tales of Mark Twain 1961 , Mark Twain Life As I Find It Essays, Sketches, Tales and Other Material 1961 , Complete Essays of Mark Twain 1963 , The Travels of Mark Twain 1961 , The Complete Novels of Mark Twain 1964 , The Complete Travel Books of Mark Twain 2 volumes, 1966 , The Comic Mark Twain Reader 1977 , The Selected Letters of Mark Twain 1982 , Plymouth Rock and the Pilgrims and Other Salutary Platform Opinions 1984 , Mark Twain at His Best A Comprehensive Sampler 1986 and The Outrageous Mark Twain 1987 Through those years, his books helped remind the world that Mark Twain wrote much than Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn.Neider s most important book, however, was arguably The Autobiography of Mark Twain 1959 In 1965, he published The Adventures of Colonel Sellers, in which he condensed all of Charles Dudley Warner s chapters to brief interchapter passages, in the same way as Neider pointed out that Mark Twain himself had constructed Those Extraordinary Twins out of the original draft of Pudd nhead Wilson The best summary of Neider s Mark Twain work can be found in his elegantly written 1967 book titled, simply, Mark Twain, which collected the introductions to his earlier books, along with other essays, including the well known Mark Twain and the Russians An Exchange of Views 1960 by Kent Rassmussen, abridged Source facultytadel leonard js



Comments Great Short Stories of the Masters

  • Annna

    I swear every single story but maybe one was depressing as hell. Still good though.

    Another Little Free Library choice:I love short stories. I have the bad habit of reading through the night when I'm in the middle of a good book and short stories help prevent that.To me, having restrictions allow the exercise of a contained creativity. The writer must give the reader the tale, the atmosphere, the characters all within a limited amount of time. To enjoy the story as well as this creative exercise is a pleasure.They also offer a glimpse of a writer's style without having to commi [...]

    This is an excellent array of stories, with a great variety of styles. I rate it 5 stars, not because every story in the collection is great (some seem totally pointless, and some seem to be an attempt to show off how many adjectives the writer knows), but because the collection does a good job of showing variety of style, and the different ways a short story can be constructed. My favorites were "That Evening Sun Go Down" by William Faulkner (the story of a black maid which reminded me a little [...]

    3.5 really. A pretty inconsistent book for me. Although, it did get considerably better at around page 200. There are lots of classics in this anthology, a lot of well known stories and some lesser known ones, but it wasn't necessarily the most popular ones that took hold of me (Nabokov, Tolstoy, Sarte, etc.). Either way, I did find a good handful of new writers. It just goes to show that out of 49 stories (I guess, set in stone classics) it was fairly easy to order a top ten: 01: A Dogs Tale - [...]

    Even though I didn't read the whole book, there were some pretty good stories and other ones pretty boring. It was okay.


  • Will Abel

    Nice to read some stories from a few authors I'd not read before. Sadly most of these stories are just dull.


  • Shishir

    Excellent selection


  • Sophie

    Some good stories, but many bizarre ones. A so-so collection.
