Mark Twain: “The 1.000.000 Bank Note” (Brief Story):
“The 1,000,000 Bank-Note,” one of Twain’s best-loved tales, is a wish-fulfillment fantasy in which a bet between two rich English eccentrics catapults a down-and-out clerk from San Francisco into wealth, status and fame in London society, a paean to ingenuity and a celebration of its cunning confidence-man narrator.
Samuel Langhorne Clemens con seudónimo literario Mark Twain (1835/1910).-
“I was alone in the world and depended on my inteligence and reputation”
“The explanation is inside”.
“There was a tragic side of all this. During the night, in the dark, I thought about the possible consequences of my situation and couldn´t sleep. However, during the day I forgot about this and was ecstatically happy. This was only natural because I was famous… People recognized me wherever I went. I was swimming in Glory”.
