PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This mini-unit on Mark Twain allows the teacher to defend the position that Mark Twain was a rhetorical master and comic genius. Too often the selections in textbooks are historically significant and terrible to read. Twain's "Humane Word from Satan" in which he assumes the persona of Satan to defend the robber baron Rockefeller for his recent conviction on tax evasion. The rhetorical analysis allows students to understand Twain's mastery of political satire. "Diary of Adam" excerpts included allows the student to enter into the gender role debate through humor. Perhaps Twain masterwork of rhetoric, "The Damned Human Race" allows students to understand the inherent problems in American society just as the frontiers are closing. Writing bonuses included.
