Final Paper Online Resources


As you explore the social, historical, cultural, and legal contexts of Mark Twain’s Pudd’nhead Wilson, please check out the following resources. Many of them include links to primary sources that you can use in your paper:

  • University of Virginia Puddnhead Wilson Page
    Please check out this site!! It contains wonderful information on sources, advertisements, first editions, etc.
  • Making of America
    “a digital library of primary sources in American social history from the antebellum period through reconstruction.”
  • From Slavery to Freedom: The African American Pamphlet Collection, 1824 – 1909.
    “396 pamphlets from the Rare Book and Special Collections Division, published from 1822 through 1909, by African-American authors and others who wrote about slavery, African colonization, Emancipation, Reconstruction, and related topics. The materials range from personal accounts and public orations to organizational reports and legislative speeches. Among the authors represented are Frederick Douglass, Kelly Miller, Charles Sumner, Mary Church Terrell, and Booker T. Washington.”
  • Additionally, I have put a handful of books on reserve in the library, including:

  • Ron Powers, Mark Twain: A Life
  • Bloom, Harold, ed. Mark Twain
  • . . . a few documentary histories of slavery in the U.S. (titles forthcoming)
  • If you find a useful online source, please share a link to it in the comments!
