Über den Autor

Mark Twain, the pen name for Samuel Langhorne Clemens (1835–1910), was an American writer, humorist, entrepreneur, publisher, and lecturer, celebrated as one of America's greatest literary figures. He hails from Florida, Missouri, and is best known for his novels 'The Adventures of Tom Sawyer' (1876) and its sequel, 'The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn' (1885), the latter often called the 'Great American Novel.' Twain's mastery of humor, narrative voice, and social criticism has firmly established him in the pantheon of American literature. His travel narratives, essays, and various other works all exhibit his sharp wit and profound understanding of humanity. A standout among his later works is 'Living to Tell the Horrid Tales: True Life Stories of Former Slaves, Historical Documents & Novels,' which reflects Twain's deep interest in the Civil War and Reconstruction eras, his abhorrence of slavery, and his engagement with the cultural milieu of the United States during the latter half of the 19th century. Twain's unique literary style combines colloquial language with a keen eye for detail and a storytelling prowess that remains influential and beloved by readers around the globe.
