The Gilded Age

The Gilded Age

ByMark TwainCharles Dudley Warner

Published in 1873 by the American Publishing company, A Gilded Age was Twain's first novel and was co-written by Charles Dudley Warner. The plot runs across two connected arcs with the first concerning the attempted sale of unimproved land in Tennessee by a poor rural family and the second arc dealing with a pair of land speculators and their efforts to turn a deal and win a woman. Like many of the novels to follow, Twain's work is essential satirical, though his targets – the Washington political set – were not much followed up. Beneath the plot is an autobiographical story of long hoped for land sales within the Clemens family.
