About the Author

Mark Twain, the pseudonym of Samuel Langhorne Clemens (1835–1910), was an American writer, humorist, entrepreneur, publisher, and lecturer. Born in Florida, Missouri, Twain grew up in Hannibal, a town on the Mississippi River that would later provide the setting for his most famous works, 'The Adventures of Tom Sawyer' (1876) and its sequel, 'Adventures of Huckleberry Finn' (1885), the latter often called the 'Great American Novel.' Twain's literary oeuvre is characterized by his keen wit and a sharp, satirical commentary on society, encapsulated in his 'Mark Twain's Comedy Classics,' which includes over 190 stories and sketches illustrating his talent for humor and observation. His proficiency in the use of regional vernacular language and his creation of engaging, enduring characters have made Twain one of the most beloved authors of American literature. In addition to his fiction, Twain was prolific in various other genres, including travel writing and essays, where his opinions on imperialism, organized religion, and the hypocrisy of mankind often stirred controversy. Twain's contributions to literature have made an indelible impact, earning him accolades such as William Faulkner's assessment of him as the 'father of American literature.'
