Robert H. Hirst (Project Director: December 2019 to present)
Mark Twain Project

Preparation for print and digital publication of four volumes of works by Mark Twain (1835-1910) and updates to the Mark Twain Project Online. (12 months)

This proposal would enable us to publish, in print and electronically at Mark Twain Project Online (MTPO), four major critical editions on which work is already in an advanced state: The Innocents Abroad, a classic of the American encounter with Europe and the Near East; a two-text edition of Pudd'nhead Wilson, the author's frankest engagement with racism and one of the most studied and read of his novels; San Francisco Correspondence, 1865-1866, collecting his surviving writing for the Virginia City (Nevada) Territorial Enterprise, provided with the annotation that alone can make this context-bound journalism understandable; and Mark Twain's Letters, Volume 7: 1876-1877. In addition the editors propose to publish two volumes (Innocents and Pudd'nhead), in the Mark Twain Library series, which brings the critically edited texts and notes to a wider reading audience. By the end of the grant period we will publish on MTPO edited texts of all of Mark Twain's letters from 1881 through 1887.
