Kurzbeschreibung

• Richly illustrated to enhance these classics works by MarkTwain. Twain shows himself once again to be a wry observer of human behavior.

Collected together are three satiric treatises on Adam and Eve, the first family. From the witty pen of Mark Twain (Samuel Langhorne Clemens), we get a glimpse at their supposed diaries, an insightful commentary on the relationship between man and woman. Better still, this new anthology is illustrated with more than 40 revealing photographs -- plus a portfolio of 20 famous paintings and sculptures depicting the au naturel couple in the Garden of Eden. A new take on an old classic!

Synopsis

Master storyteller Mark Twain hilariously recreates the very first days, portraying Adam as something of a recluse, and a man who is ill prepared for the arrival of Eve, a talkative, emotional and highly charged female. Yet, in time, and after many moments of conflict, they begin to learn to live together and come to realise that men and women can, in fact, exist in harmony.

Mehr über den Autor

Mark Twain (1835-1910) hat sein Handwerk von der Pike auf gelernt. Nach dem Tod seines Vaters machte er eine Ausbildung zum Schriftsetzer und arbeitete in vielen Städten der USA als Drucker und Journalist. Auch auf einem Mississippidampfer war Mark Twain beschäftigt, außerdem wurde er Soldat bei den Konföderierten und begab sich sogar auf Silbersuche. Später führten ihn seine Reisen bis nach Europa. 1864 gelang ihm mit "Jumping-Frog" ("Der berühmte Springfrosch von Calaveras County") der literarische Durchbruch. Humor und Satire gehören zu den Markenzeichen des weltbekannten amerikanischen Schriftstellers, dessen berühmtestes Buch wohl "Die Abenteuer des Huckleberry Finn" (1884) ist. Mark Twains Alterswerk dagegen ist von einer eher pessimistischen Grundhaltung geprägt.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A Warm Odysssey of Togetherness 11. Januar 2000
Format:Taschenbuch
Mark Twain creates a fascinating experience of a man and a woman discovering each other, learning to live together in the real world, growing up toward being a whole being.
Throughout the entire delicious epic of the story, the two characters grow from unaware children to mature humans, able to make a living together through all difficulties.
Adam, on one side, starts regarding Eve in a critical way that reminds the rigorousness of an engineer and ends warmly with the calm passion given by a lifetime of togetherness.
Eve, on the other, depicted here as the essential expression of the womanhood, appears as a living miracle of contradictions. She is so playful, sunny, innocent and wildly alive, that Adam finally realizes he's happy to be sentenced to love her forever. It is worth saying that even the Sin is reconsidered here rather as an abuse of Eve's ingenuity than an assumed trespassing...
The friendly, optimistic approach to life, the art of putting strong, fundamental feelings into everyday's words, the gentle humor far from cheap melodrama, the subtle metaphor of the joy of living arising from each chapter made me to consider this novel the most touchy love story ever written.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Twain demonstrates that he is the master of the light parody 6. November 2007
Von Charles Ashbacher - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
Mark Twain was a master of many things and in this short essay, he shows that one of those things is the light parody. He recounts segments from the diaries of Adam and Eve, first from Adam's, then Eve's and then from Adam's again. He lightly touches on their ignorance of their surroundings and how they interact with each other within that ignorance. While it is a clear parody of some of the inconsistencies of the tale of the Garden of Eden, it is so gentle that at times it is easy to miss his handling of one of the inconsistencies. At the end of the story, they describe the love they had for each other, yet didn't quite realize that it existed.
In a caption written forty years after their departure from Eden, Eve says," But if one of us must go first, it is my prayer that it shall be I; for he is strong, I am weak, I am not so necessary to him as he is to me - life without him would not be life; how could I endure it?" The final caption appears in a section entitled "At Eve's Grave." "Adam: Wheresoever she was, there was Eden."
For this illustrates the true problem between the sexes, not the other situations such as "Men from Mars, Women from Venus." It is that a paired man and women do not truly understand the feelings that each has for the other, each believing that the feelings are disproportionate from one side to the other.
5.0 von 5 Sternen gift for my sister in law 12. Dezember 2011
Von Robin Nance - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Verifizierter Kauf
I was pleased at the quick delivery, the great condition of the book and for a rare book the price was very good. I bought this for my sister-in-law to accompany an English version I ordered for my brother. I was so happy that it had the original illustrations from 1906. I love the recent illustrations and they were in my brother's English version but they are very different from the first publication's artworks.

4.0 von 5 Sternen The Diary of Adam and Eve by Mark Twain 20. Oktober 2010
Von vilima - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
10-19-10 It is always interesting to hear another version of a familiar story. Some day I'd like to write one myself. I have already written an essay called The Exact Dimensions of Heaven, but after writing 1600 words I ended it with "Of course, I will have to make it up!" Mark Twain is funny and serious. His book was another unique adventure. vilima
