Title:Mark Twain and the Hawaiian Legislature
Authors:Chock, Susan
Contributors:English (department)
Date Issued:15 Jan 2014
Publisher:University of Hawaii at Manoa
Abstract:In this paper, I will show how Mark Twain recorded his observations on the Hawaiian Legislature in the form of a travel letter and incor­porated humor in the depiction of the island government. I will compare Mark Twain's account in the letters with the minutes taken by the legislators and the local newspaper ac­counts. The legislative proceedings were rarely amusing; the minutes show that the legislators were serious about the business.
