ABSTRACT
The article examines the rhetoric and ideology in American novelist Mark Twain's "Life on the Mississippi." It presents an anecdote from the book as a characteristic example of Twain's humor. It suggests that the importance of the river in the novel suggests a consideration of the text from the theoretical perspective of the pastoral mode. It explores how the book reflects a lost way of life associated with the young manhood of Twain.
