Annotation During his life, Mark Twain was known worldwide for his tales and sketches, many of them humorous.

In "The Man that Corrupted Hadleyburg," uncontrollable greed undoes an entire community. This bleaker outlook culminates in "The Mysterious Stranger", as America's foremost humorist becomes its prophet of futility.
