Adored and criticized throughout the literary world, Mark Twain’s wildly popular travel narratives and historical fiction brought us timeless characters like Huckleberry Finn and Tom Sawyer. Twain’s mastery of colloquial dialogue created shockingly accurate depictions of racism and prejudice, and resulted in his books being banned from more conservative libraries, both during his lifetime and nearly a century later. Praised for their uncanny wit, Twain’s uniquely entertaining dialogue and profound criticisms of the time’s social norms both humor and challenge readers.

Praise for the Author
. . . [Twain is] the father of American literature.
—William Faulkner, recipient, 1949 Nobel Prize in Literature
. . . [He was the] greatest American humorist of his age . . .
—The New York Times
. . . Mark Twain has devoted his great powers to the service of the right. His work is characterized by a sweet sunniness, across which no shadow of impurity ever falls. . . . and his unrivalled powers of ridicule have been steadily directed against conventionality, hypocrisy, affectation, and humbug. It is not, I think, too much to prophesy that, when the time comes for a final estimate of Mark Twain, he will be recognized as one of the most national of American authors, and one of the peculiar glories of American literature.
Twain was a master of colloquial speech and helped in creating and popularizing a distinctive American literature, on American themes and literature.

About Mark Twain
Samuel Langhorne Clemens (1835–1910) was a highly influential American humorist author, better known by his pen name, Mark Twain. While he earned enormous financial success from his writings, his other pursuits incurred him enormous debt, and he eventually filed for bankruptcy. Despite having no legal obligation to repay his creditors, Twain paid them back in full when he overcame his financial misfortunes. Twain enjoyed a close friendship with Nikola Tesla, whose lab satisfied Twain’s appetite for science. Twain patented three inventions, including a replacement for suspenders and a history-trivia game; his novel A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court showcases his passion for scientific ingenuity. In general, Twain’s literary works embody his deep anti-imperialist beliefs, his criticism of racism, and his disdain for some aspects of organized religion. His novel The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn is widely hailed as “the Great American Novel.”
