MARK TWAIN

Classic Literary Author Biography and Photos

Samuel Langhorne Clemens (1835 – 1910)

classic book author mark twain, adventures of huckleberry finn, tom sawyer, civil warMark Twain was born in Florida under his real name, Samuel Langhorne Clemens, and moved to a port town on the Mississippi River as a young child, which would later inspire his two most famous books, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn and The Adventures of Tom Sawyer.

Mark Twain’s father passed away when he was twelve years old, and the following year Twain began work as a typesetter, alongside contributing sketches and articles for the local journal (a newspaper owned by his older brother).

He later went on to become a steamboat pilot, which involved at least two years of study, and paid extremely handsomely. Mark Twain got his younger brother to work alongside him, but was killed when a steamboat he had been working on, exploded, something Twain regretted for the rest of his life.
As a pacifist he deserted from the Civil War and later went on to tour other parts of America, Europe and the Middle East.

Mark Twain died in Connecticut from angina pectoris.
