"Things Are Seldom What They Seem: Judges and Lawyers in the Tales of Mark Twain"

35 Conn. L. Rev. 559, *

Donna Scheidt's insight:

This 2003 law review article focuses on textual representations of judges and lawyers.  It has a section devoted to _Pudd'nhead Wilson_.  There is at least one illustration in the Norton Critical Edition that represents the judge, so perhaps a discussion of visual representation could supplement this discussion.

Mark Twain and His Illustrators, II (1875-1883)

Click here to edit the title

Donna Scheidt's insight:

Book length treatment.  Unclear whether it covers _Pudd'nhead Wilson_ (given dates of coverage).  Again, I wonder what orientation the writer takes to the illustrations.  Does he evaluate their contribution to Mark Twain's writing (_Pudd'nhead Wilson_ in particular)?

"Was Roxy Black"

Donna Scheidt's insight:

"Was Roxy Black" is a chapter in a book entitled _Mixed Race Literature_ that seems to discuss the role of illustrations in the novel's racial representation.

Pudd'nhead Wilson: Facsimile First Edition

Donna Scheidt's insight:

Digital scan of 1900 reprint of 1894 edition.  Includes illustrations from this edition.  I wonder how these illustrations compare with those in contemporary printings (e.g., W.W. Norton)?  Initially, it seems like this earlier edition has many more illustrations, and the illustrations are much smaller.  Some of them seem similar to the ones in the contemporary edition.  Maybe certain illustrations were chosen?  Which ones?  Why?  The last illustration of the preface, representing Mark Twain, is the same here as in the Norton Critical Edition.

"Idiots First, Then Juries: Legal Metaphors in Mark Twain's Pudd'nhead Wilson"

Donna Scheidt's insight:

Article is a little dated and doesn't have to do with illustrations.  But it does connect _Pudd'nhead Wilson_ with legal themes via metaphors. Are any of these metaphors illustrated?  At the end of Norton Critical Edition of the novel, there is a drawing of Chambers (revealed to be Tom) hauling away documents and being chased down by creditors.  Is this illustration of bankruptcy addressed in the article?

"Book Illustrations as (Intersemiotic) Translation: Pictures Translating Words"

Click here to edit the title

Donna Scheidt's insight:

French/English translators' journal.  Audience is translators, which makes it somewhat less relevant for questions of general readership. Nevertheless, the article could raise some interesting points about the relationship between words and images in Mark Twain's work (though not specifically in _Pudd'nhead Wilson_).  (Available works suggest an existing conversation on illustrations in Mark Twain's work, but one that hasn't yet been extended to _Pudd'nhead Wilson_ - an opportunity!)

Donna Scheidt's insight:

Website gives background information on the several illustrators and artists affiliated with Twain's work.  Which of these was responsible for the representation of Twain himself at the beginning of the contemporary W.W. Norton edition?  Website may not be reliable as work of "Barbara Schmidt" who describes herself simply as a "web site publisher."  It seems like Frank Senior was the illustrator for the 1894 edition from which many of the illustrations appear to have been adopted for the contemporary Norton Critical Edition.

Donna Scheidt's insight:

Website describes how different editions of Twain's _Pudd'nhead Wilson_ included different kinds of illustrations.  It is generally critical of the illustrations, which it understands as emotionally distancing and lacking racial nuance.  Excellent links to examples of illustrations.
