Dear Reader,

This website is dedicated to Mark Twain’s “The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Cavaleras County” the site may provide you with some info about the story that you might not know. In the post that follow you will see a number of different  types of posts. Some will be answers of questions others will be reactions to to certain ideas, all stemming from course work completed in ENG 170W at Queens College in New York. Twain’s story is packed with historical data  that is densely hidden and humor that can be seen from a mile away a key writing attribute that Twain has been known to have mastered.

    Good website. I like the information you added, especially the Unanswered Questions pages, which is the one place you really start thinking about interpreting this comic story (other than the Conference Presentation). I was hoping you might answer some of these questions more–particularly the question central to our class: how is interpreting literature more than just understanding a text’s narrative?
