1882 1st ed UK A Tramp Abroad Mark Twain Travel Illustrated Satire Alps CLASSIC

“That's the difference between governments and individuals. Governments don't care, individuals do.” – Mark Twain, A Tramp Abroad

This Mark Twain novel, “A Tramp Abroad’ is a natural extension of ‘The Innocents Abroad’ as a travel narrative, a return to the Old World. As a cultural document, it is also a natural continuation of the great popular movement of tourism, wherein the ‘innocent’ becomes a ‘tramp’.” (Melton,78). This adventure voyages book is not one of Twain’s finer works, as many readers feel he rambles and lacks a sense of direction, but by writing with a sense of ironic prose and satire, “A Tramp Abroad” is still a desirable and recognizable Twain novel.
