Twain at Troynovant:
inspirations via Mark Twain,
pseudonym of Samuel Langhorne Clemens (1835-1910);
by, about, tangential, or quoted,
listed by Type and Title

The great majority of Twain's published works, with some previously uncollected, are to be found in the fine Library of America volumes of his works (available as a set or individually); exceptions will be noted.

And the feller studied a minute, and then says, kinder sad, like, "Well — I'm only a stranger here, and I ain't got no frog — but if I had a frog I'd bet you."

[Cleopatra's palace, Alexandria.]

Antony (to Cleopatra):

Let Rome in Tiber melt, and the wide arch
Of the ranged empire fall. Here is my space.
Kingdoms are clay. Our dungy earth alike
Feeds beast as man. The nobleness of life
Is to do thus;
    [embraces her]
                    when such a mutual pair
And such a twain can do't — in which I bind
On gain of punishment the world to weet —
We stand up peerless.

Cleopatra [aside]:

                                Excellent falsehood!

William Shakespeare
Antony and Cleopatra, 1.1.35-42
