Few writers are more often read, and better loved, than Charles Dickens and Samuel Langhorne Clemens, a.k.a. Mark Twain. Many of the characters populating their novels have become household words, cultural landmarks in their own right—Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn, David Copperfield and Oliver Twist. It is as if we have known them our entire lives.

In this course we take a look at the lives and works of both authors, comparing and celebrating them, in their use of use language, in their humor, in their evocation of character, and in their evaluation of the social world in which they find themselves.
