The Last of the Mohicans & Fenimore Cooper's Literary Offenses

The Last of the Mohicans & Fenimore Cooper's Literary Offenses Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

The Last of the Mohicans is an epic novel by James Fenimore Cooper, first published in January 1826. It was one of the most popular English-language novels of its time, and helped establish Cooper as one of the first world-famous American writers. The story takes place in 1757 during the French and Indian War, when France and Great Britain battled for control of the American and Canadian colonies. During this war, the French often allied themselves with Native American tribes in order to gain an advantage over the British, with unpredictable and often tragic results. After the Cooper text comes Mark Twain's caustic, funny, and damning Fenimore Cooper's Literary Offenses. Wherein Twain takes deadly aim at the casual manner in which Cooper wrote. Together for the first time these two classics are perfect counterpoints to one another.
