Victorian era novelist Anthony Trollope wrote novels on political and social issues of his day that have remained popular into the 21st century. Novels of this era were introduced through serialization, and were illustrated by various artists such as the Dalziel Brothers, Framley Parsonage and Mary Ellen Edwards.

Academy Award winning screenwriter and novelist Dalton Trumbo authored the anti-war story about a Canadian soldier who loses his limbs and face in WWI. Johnny Got His Gun was later made into a movie.

Trumbo is best remembered for being blacklisted for his refusal to testify before the House Un-American Activities Committee (HUAC) investigating the motion picture industry.

Dalton Trumbo quote ~
• “Inside me I’m screaming, nobody pays any attention. If I had arms, I could kill myself. If I had legs, I could run away. If I had a voice, I could talk and be some kind of company for myself. I could yell for help, but nobody would help me.” ~ Joe Bonham, Johnny Got His Gun

Ivan Sergeyevich Turgenev
b. 11-9-1818; Oryol, Russia
d. 9-3-1883; Bougival, Seine-et-Oise, France

Turgenev's master piece, Fathers and Sons (1862), “represents in its hero Bazarov, ‘the new man’, a nihilist liberated from age-old conformities and at odds with the previous generation, questioning the very fabric of society.”

Ivan Turgenev quotes ~
• “In the end, nature is inexorable: it has no reason to hurry and, sooner or later, it takes what belongs to it. Unconsciously and inflexibly obedient to its own laws, it doesn't know art, just as it doesn't know freedom, just as it doesn't know goodness.”
• “A poet must be a psychologist, but a secret one: he should know and feel the roots of phenomena but present only the phenomena themselves in full bloom or as they fade away.”
• “A picture shows me at a glance what it takes dozens of pages of a book to expound.” (or “A picture is worth a thousand words.” erroneously attributed to Confucius)

Mark Twain
b. 11-30-1835; Florida, MO
d. 4-21-1910; Redding, CT

“Loyalty to a petrified opinion never broke a chain or freed a human soul.”

Mark Twain was the pen name for Samuel Clemens (1835-1910). He was a famous humorist and wrote many autobiographical works, travel books, and novels.

Hannibal, Missouri was the river town of his boyhood. The experiences he had along the wide Mississippi were a rich source for many of his books. Two of his most famous characters, Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn, have been endeared to young and old alike with their irresponsible and mischievous escapades.

Samuel Clemens was also a serious social critic. He used humor to express his offense to all forms of narrow-mindedness and prejudice.
