Throw out your Emerson and your Thoreau. Charles Dudley Warner should rule. He's even funnier than Twain, because he's got a touch less sarcasm. Compared to him, those other guys were pretentious overthinkers who were barely able to get an idea across through words. If I had free time, I would campaign to insert his works into school reading lists of American Lit. But for now, I'll just send this review out into the interwebs, and read another Warner essay.
