Mark Twain

Born Samuel Langhorne Clemmons, (November 30, 1835 – April 21, 1910) in Florida, Missouri, Twain grew up in Hannibal. Apprenticing himself to a printer, a career he pursued with various papers, he first learned typesetting and began contributing articles to his older brother, Orion’s newspaper. Later he became a master riverboat pilot of the Mississippi river, setting the stage for his two best-known novels, this one (1876) (Tom Sawyer being modeled on Twain himself), and its sequel, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn (1885).

Even though he gained great success as a writer and orator, garnering much praise from his peers, he lacked financial acumen and was forced to file for bankruptcy, but later overcame the problems and paid all his creditors in full. Twain was widely accepted as the greatest American humorist of his day and William Faulkner called him ‘the Father of American Literature’.
