Francis Bret Harte was born on August 25, 1836 in Albany New York. As a young boy Harte developed an early love of books and reading. He first published at the tender age of 11; a satirical poem titled "Autumn Musings." Expecting praise he encountered anything but and was later to write "Such a shock was their ridicule to me that I wonder that I ever wrote another line of verse." By age 13 his formal education was at an end and four years later, in 1853, the family moved to California. Here the young man worked in a variety of capacities; miner, teacher, messenger, and journalist. But it was also here on the West coast that he found the stories and inspiration for the works that would endure his fame across the literary world. He championed the early writings of Mark Twain. He was instrumental in propelling the short story genre forward and brought tales of the Old West and the Gold Rush to a greater audience. At the height of his fame we would entertain staggering monetary offers to write for monthly magazines. His talents extended to poetry, plays, lectures, book reviews, editorials, and magazine sketches. As he moved location initially further east to New York and then through Consular appointments to Europe and finally to settle in England his audience diminished but he continued to experiment, to write and to publish. Bret Harte died of throat cancer on May 5th 1902 and is buried in St Peter's Church in Frimley, Surrey, England. Here we publish another very fine collection of his short stories; "Tales of Trail and Town"

Selected letters of Bret Harte by Bret Harte( Book )

4 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For this edition, noted scholar Gary Scharnhorst has selected 259 letters (including 144 that are new to scholarship) from more than 2,000 Bret Harte letters known to exist. Scharnhorst's lively introduction and comprehensive notes give general readers and specialists immediate access to the literary and social milieus in which Harte lived and worked. A painstaking correspondent, Bret Harte created in his letters fascinating vignettes of life on several fronts during the latter half of the nineteenth century - San Francisco's fledgling society of the 1860s, the literary scene in New York and Boston in the 1870s, the Reconstruction South, and the Continent and British Isles through the turn of the twentieth century. As a fiction writer, playwright, and diplomat, Harte knew, sometimes intimately, many of the most prominent women and men of his day, including such writers as Mark Twain and Henry James, such actors as Lawrence Barrett and Annie Russell, and such politicians as John Hay and Herbert Bismarck. This unexpurgated edition of Bret Harte's letters, the first in more than seventy years, chronicles the life of a pioneering western American writer who became a creature of the literary marketplace. Among other life events, the edition details Harte's increasingly troubled relationship with Samuel Clemens and includes all known letters from Harte to Clemens
