Completion of editorial work on electronic and print publications of the Autobiography of Mark Twain, and continued adding of Twain's major works to the Mark Twain Project Online. (36 months)

If funded, this proposal would enable the professional staff of the Mark Twain Project to finish preparing the Autobiography of Mark Twain, publishing the first third electronically on its new web site, Mark Twain Project Online, and also the first of a three-volume print edition, by the centenary of Mark Twain's death in 2010. The Autobiography is by far the largest and arguably the most important of the works that Mark Twain left deliberately unpublished, specifically prohibiting publication of parts of it for one hundred years after his death. Its publication in complete form will be a signal event both in Mark Twain studies and in the world of American literature. This proposal will also allow the editors to continue populating Mark Twain Project Online with editions of Mark Twain's major works, drawing on converted forms of the twenty-six scholarly volumes they have published to date.
