Mark Twain (Who Wrote That?)












The most beloved humorist of his day, Mark Twain is today considered one of the greatest authors the United States has ever produced. Born Samuel Clemens, a poor boy hailing from the humble frontier town of Hannibal, Missouri, Twain delighted readers throughout the 19th century with his observations about the best and worst in the American character. Mark Twain explores how Clemens, using his famous pen name, drew from his life experiences to create his best-known works, including 'The Innocents Abroad', 'A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court', and 'The Adventures of 'Tom Sawyer', and pays special attention to his masterpiece, 'Adventures of Huckleberry Finn', a novel that continues to resonate in our time.
