By the Way

By the way, Twain’s comments on James Fennimore Cooper begin  “Cooper’s art has some defects. In one place in “Deerslayer,” and in the restricted space of two-thirds of a page, Cooper has scored 114 offenses against literary art out of a possible 115. It breaks the record.”  

The Last of the Mohicans (Director's Expanded Edition)If only my High School English Lit teacher had read more Twain, I can never get back the time spent reading Deerslayer and Last of the Mohican’s . . . . though Michael Mann’s movie version is pretty good..
