  • About the Author

    Lauded as the ‘greatest American humorist of his age’ and called ‘the father of American literature’ by William Faulkner, Samuel Langhorne Clemens, better known by his pen name Mark Twain, was born in Florida, Missouri, in 1835. In 1839, his family shifted to Hannibal, a developing port city along the banks of River Mississippi, which later provided the setting for The Adventures of Tom Sawyer (1876) and, its sequel, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn (1884), two of his most remarkable books. His first story, The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County, was published in 1865 in New York’s The Saturday Press. With this came his first success as a writer. The Innocents Abroad (1869) was his first novel. Twain’s other well-known works include Roughing It (1872), A Tramp Abroad (1880), The Prince and the Pauper (1881), A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court (1889), and Pudd’nhead Wilson (1891). Twain was awarded an honorary doctorate in letters by the Oxford University in 1907. He died on April 21, 1910 in Redding, Connecticut, after suffering a heart attack.
