Critical sites about Roughing It

“Roughing It”
“The grotesque exaggeration and broad irony with which the life is described are conjecturably the truest colors that could have been used, for all existence there must have looked like an extravagant joke, the humor of which was only deepened by its nether-side of tragedy. The plan of the book is very simple indeed, for it is merely the personal history of Mr. Clemens during a certain number of years. . . “
Contains: Review
Author: Howells, William Dean
From: Atlantic Monthly June 1872
