Just ask! 1880 1st/1st Mark Twain A Tramp Abroad 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. Twain's third travel book describing his month-long trip to central and southern Europe in the summer of 1878 with his friend, Reverend Joseph Twitchell A very enjoyable and humorous work, in which the author blends autobiography and fiction, facts and tall tales.
