What does Mark Twain satirize in this excerpt from “the £1,000,000 bank-note”?
In some excerpts, Mark Twain satirizes American society which uses long names and titles to name somebody from the higher stratum of society instead of using simple names. “The Million Pound Bank Note” is also a satirical view of money and corruption. The protagonist is intelligent enough to make use of his money and make even more. The fact that Henry finds a banknote when he is lost is a type of irony rather than satire.
