“The fear of death follows from the fear of life. A man who lives fully is prepared to die at any time.”

― Mark Twain

 

Mark Twain and his works were immensely popular all on their own. Such notable characters as Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn stood out about other 19th-century literary characters, and not just in the United States.

 

In 1876, Twain published a short story entitled ‘A Literary Nightmare’, which was a fictional tale about Twain himself encountering an earworm – a jingle he couldn’t get out of his head for days on end. The story was retitled and republished under the name ‘Punch, Brothers, Punch’ in 1878.
