Description

This title is part of a reproduced set of the Greystone Definitive Edition. The original was produced in one thousand twenty four sets. The Gilded Age: A Tale of Today is an 1873 novel by Mark Twain and Charles Dudley Warner that satirizes greed and political corruption in post-Civil War America. The term gilded age, commonly given to the era, comes from the title of this book. Twain and Warner got the name from Shakespeare’s King John (1595): “To gild refined gold, to paint the lily… is wasteful and ridiculous excess.”
