Description

The life of Charles Dudley Warner as a young boy in a farm in Charlemont Massachusetts was said to be purely innocent and very funny. He lived a childhood life full of wonders and happiness.

Charles said that one of the best things in the world is being a boy for it needs no skill but one needs to practice on how to be a good boy. Although being a boy is not forever, because you grow up sooner as time goes on. Growing up is not as much fun as it was before when you were still young. You do not do those things anymore when you were still a boy. When Charles was still young, he desperately thought of becoming a man, and very much uncomfortable with the constraints set upon him when he was still a boy.

Charles Dudley Warner was an essayist, author from the United States. He was a good friend of Mark Twain whom he co-authored the book, The Gilded Age: A Tale of Today.

Charles was born of Puritan ancestry in Plainfield, Massachusetts. When he was at the age of 6 to 14, he resided in Charlemont, Massachusetts, where he retold his childhood experiences through his memoir, Being a Boy, published in 1877. Afterwards, he emigrated to Cazenovia, New York and finished his studies in Hamilton College, Clinton, New York in 1851.

He worked as a surveyor in Missouri, graduated law at the University of Pennsylvania and became a law practitioner in Chicago. After that, he became an assistant editor and later, an editor of the Hartford Press. The Hartford Press consolidated with The Hartford Courant, and he was the co-editor of Joesph R. Hawley. Later, he became an editor at the Harper’s Magazine. He devoted himself so much into writing and created interesting books.
