Mark Twain, born Samuel Langhorne Clemens, was an American humorist and writer, who is best known for his enduring novels The Adventures of Tom Sawyer and Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, which has been called “the Great American Novel.” Raised in Hannibal, Missouri, Twain held a variety of jobs including typesetter, riverboat pilot, and miner before achieving nationwide attention for his work as a journalist with “The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County.” He earned critical and popular praise for his wit and enjoyed a successful career as a public speaker in addition to his writing. Twain’s works were remarkable for his ability to capture colloquial speech, although his adherence to the vernacular of the time has resulted in the suppression of his works by schools in modern times. Twain’s birth in 1835 coincided with a visit by Halley’s Comet, and Twain predicted, accurately, that he would “go out with it” as well, dying the day following the comet’s return in 1910.read more
