Description - The Innocents Abroad by Mark Twain

'Who could read the programme for the excursion without longing to make one of the party? So Mark Twain acclaims his voyage from New York City to Europe and the Holy Land in June 1867. His adventures produced 'The Innocents Abroad', a book so funny and provocative it made him an international star for the rest of his life. He was making his first responses to the Old World - to Paris, Milan, Florence, Venice, Pompeii, Constantinople, Sebastopol, Balaklava, Damascus, Jerusalem, Nazareth, and Bethlehem. For the first time he was seeing the great paintings and sculptures of the 'Old Masters'. He responded with wonder and amazement, but also with exasperation, irritation, disbelief. Above all he displayed the great energy of his humour, more explosive for us now than for his beguiled contemporaries. AUTHOR: Samuel Langhorne Clemens (1835 -1910) alias Mark Twain, is considered one of America's greatest ever writers. Not only did he write enormously popular novels, such as 'The Adventures of Tom Sawyer', but also a series of classic travel books, including 'Life on the Mississippi' and 'The Innocents Abroad'. Probably his finest work is 'The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn', which is rated as one of the finest American novels ever written.
