Description

If you’ve ever studied German (and maybe even if you haven’t), you’re likely to find this short essay to be hilarious. Published as Appendix D from Twain’s 1880 book A Tramp Abroad, this comedic gem outlines the pitfalls one will encounter when trying to wrap one’s mind around the torturous German cases, adjective endings, noun genders, and verb placement.

Humorless & Amateur
Reviewer LOLDavid
 August 18, 2006
Rainer speaks English but has a German accent and he gives a rather humorless, amateur reading of this Mark Twain essay.
