About the Author

Samuel Langhorne Clemens, better known by his pen name Mark Twain, was an American writer, humorist, entrepreneur, publisher, and lecturer. Born on November 30, 1835, in Florida, Missouri, Twain grew up in Hannibal, a town which would later provide the setting for his most famous novels, 'The Adventures of Tom Sawyer' (1876) and 'Adventures of Huckleberry Finn' (1885). Often called the 'father of American literature' by many, Twain's work is characterized by its wit, satire, and deep insights into human nature and society. His writing style often made use of the vibrant and colloquial speech he encountered in his life along the Mississippi River. Twain's 'Mark Twain: The Complete Novels (The Greatest Novelists of All Time – Book 5)' offers a comprehensive collection of his literature, showcasing the breadth and depth of his works. Beyond his major novels, Twain wrote numerous other works including travel literature, such as 'The Innocents Abroad' (1869). He was also a lecturer and had a very successful career in public speaking. His acerbic sense of humor and sharp wit made him one of the most admired and quoted American writers. Twain's contribution to literature is immense, and his influence continues to be felt in contemporary writing and culture. He passed away on April 21, 1910, but his legacy endures in the canon of great American literature.
