Mark Twain - Author

About the Author

Mark Twain is the pseudonym of Samuel Langhorne Clemens (1835 – 1910). He was born and brought up in the American state of Missouri and, because of his father’s death, he left school to earn his living when he was only twelve. He was a great adventurer and travelled round America as a printer; prospected for gold and set off for South America to earn his fortune. He returned to become a steam-boat pilot on the Mississippi River, close to where he had grown up. The Civil War put an end to steam-boating and Clemens briefly joined the Confederate army – although the rest of his family were Unionists! He had already tried his hand at newspaper reporting and now became a successful journalist. He started to use the alias Mark Twain during the Civil War and it was under this pen name that he became a famous travel writer. He took the name from his steam-boat days – it was the river pilots’ cry to let their men know that the water was two fathoms deep.

Mark Twain was always nostalgic about his childhood and in 1876 The Adventures of Tom Sawyer was published, based on his own experiences. The book was soon recognised as a work of genius and eight years later the sequel, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, was published. The great writer Ernest Hemingway claimed that 'All modern literature stems from this one book.'

Mark Twain was soon famous all over the world. He made a fortune from writing and lost it on a typesetter he invented. He then made another fortune and lost it on a bad investment. He was an impulsive, hot-tempered man but was also quite sentimental and superstitious. He was born when Halley’s Comet was passing the Earth and always believed he would die when it returned – this is exactly what happened.

Twain at Sea The Maritime Writings of Samuel Langhorne Clemens

Twain at Sea The Maritime Writings of Samuel Langhorne Clemens

Author: Mark Twain Format: Paperback Release Date: 12/06/2018

Samuel Clemens (1835-1910) repeatedly traversed the ocean during his globetrotting life. A keen observer, the man who recast himself as Mark Twain was fascinated by seafaring. This book compiles selections ranging from his first voyage in 1866-San Francisco to Hawaii-to his circumnavigation of the world by steamship 1897. Despite his background as a brown water mariner, Twain was out of his element on the ocean. His writings about being at sea (as well as feeling at sea) reflect both a growing familiarity with voyaging and an enduring sense of amazement. Twain's shipboard observations capture his interest and amusement in the blue water mariners he encountered, with their salty subculture and individual quirks. Twain at Sea collects the author's essays and travelogues on the maritime world in one volume, including excerpts from Roughing It, The Innocents Abroad, A Tramp Abroad, Following the Equator, and other sources.

In this novel, Mark Twain sends his character as much in the 6th century. He miraculously remains alive and is not lost in the crowd of wandering knights. Reason, scientific approach to life, knowledge of many discoveries made in 13 centuries after, the desire to build a world in which all are free and equal, the struggle against the church and its attempts to turn people into silent subordinates, softening the monarchy ... And all this falls to the lot of our hero - a typical Yankee from Connecticut, who fell in the era of King Arthur.

Author: Mark Twain Format: eBook Release Date: 01/06/2018

First published in 1883, "e;Life on the Mississippi"e; is Mark Twain's depiction of his life on the Mississippi river as a steamboat pilot. The work begins with a brief history of the river from the perspective of notable Americans and Europeans starting with Spanish explorer Hernando de Soto in 1542. The narrative continues with Twain's memoir of his time as an apprentice under the stewardship of experienced steamboat pilot, Horace E. Bixby. While he was twenty-one at the time, Twain portrays himself as much younger, romanticizing his youthful exuberance for his adventures aboard the steamboats of the Mississippi. The second half of the book details a trip along the Mississippi River from St. Louis to New Orleans in the years following the American Civil War. A charming depiction of a bygone era in American history, combined with many tall tales and humorous anecdotes, "e;Life on the Mississippi"e; is one of Mark Twain's most famous works of non-fiction, one which would establish him as one of 19th century America's premier humorists. This edition includes a biographical afterword.

Roughing It

Roughing It

Author: Mark Twain Format: eBook Release Date: 01/06/2018

Mark Twain's semi-autobiographical travel memoir, "e;Roughing It"e; was written between 1870-1871 and subsequently published in 1872. Billed as a prequel to "e;Innocents Abroad"e;, in which Twain details his travels aboard a pleasure cruise through Europe and the Holy Land in 1867, "e;Roughing It"e; conversely documents Twain's early days in the old wild west between the years 1861-1867. Employing his characteristically humoristic wit and flare for regional dialect, Twain crafts a story which at once explores the magnificence of the wild west and dispels its romanticized mythology. Called out west to help his brother, Orion, who has been appointed secretary of Nevada, the two travel from their homes in Missouri aboard the Overland Stage. In relating the trip, the rugged brilliance of the open frontier of the American West is beautifully depicted. Parting ways with his brother, Twain continues on from Salt Lake City to San Francisco and ultimately the kingdom of Hawaii. Along the way numerous anecdotes of humorous adventures and mishaps of Twain's experiences with Mormons, Native Americans, mining, and real estate speculation are satirically told. A classic travelogue, "e;Roughing It"e; is one of Twain's greatest non-fictional works. This edition includes a biographical afterword.

The letters of Mark Twain are peculiarly of the revealing sort.He was a man of few restraints and of no affectations.In his correspondence, as in his talk, he spoke what was in his mind, untrammeled by literary conventions."e;

Like most boys, Tom Sawyer would rather play hooky than go to school. But Tom's lively imagination and thirst for adventure lead him into the most extraordinary situations, from a search for buried treasure to the accidental witness of a murder in a graveyard. All of his exploits — tricking his pals into whitewashing a fence, sharing his medicine with the family cat, disrupting a church service with a pinching insect — are flavored with the humor for which his creator, Mark Twain, is justly famed.In writing this great American classic, Twain drew upon his own memories of life in a small Missouri town before the Civil War. Since the book's 1876 publication, generations of readers of all ages have laughed at Tom's hijinks and taken him into their hearts, along with Huckleberry Finn, Becky Thatcher, Aunt Polly, and other memorable characters. This new Dover Evergreen Classics edition offers a fresh introduction to the lovable scamp and the enduring joys of his escapades.

Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court

Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court

Author: Mark Twain, Sheba Blake Format: eBook Release Date: 30/01/2018

A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court is a novel by American humorist and writer Mark Twain. The book was originally titled A Yankee in King Arthur's Court. Some early editions are titled A Yankee at the Court of King Arthur. In the book, a Yankee engineer from Connecticut is accidentally transported back in time to the court of King Arthur, where he fools the inhabitants of that time into thinking that he is a magician, and soon uses his knowledge of modern technology to become a "e;magician"e; in earnest, stunning the English of the Early Middle Ages with such feats as demolitions, fireworks, and the shoring up of a holy well. He attempts to modernize the past, but in the end he is unable to prevent the death of Arthur and an interdict against him by the Catholic Church of the time, which grows fearful of his power. Twain wrote the book as a burlesque of Romantic notions of chivalry after being inspired by a dream in which he was a knight himself, severely inconvenienced by the weight and cumbersome nature of his armor. Twain first conceived of the idea behind A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court in December 1884 and worked on it between 1885 and 1889. It was first published in England by Chatto & Windus under the title A Yankee at the Court of King Arthur in December 1889. Writer and critic William Dean Howells called it Twain's best work and "e;an object-lesson in democracy"e;.

In his last years, Mark Twain had become a respected literary figure whose opinions were widely sought by the press. He had also suffered a series of painful physical, economic, and emotional losses. The Mysterious Stranger, published posthumously in 1916 and belonging to Twain's "e;dark"e; period, belies the popular image of the affable American humorist. In this anti-religious tale, Twain denies the existence of a benign Providence, a soul, an after-life, and even reality itself. As the Stranger in the story asserts, "e;nothing exists; all is a dream."e;

A Tramp Abroad is a work of travel literature, including a mixture of autobiography and fictional events, by American author Mark Twain, published in 1880. The book details a journey by the author, with his friend Harris, through central and southern Europe. While the stated goal of the journey is to walk most of the way, the men find themselves using other forms of transport as they traverse the continent. The book is the third of Mark Twain's five travel books and is often thought to be an unofficial sequel to the first one, The Innocents Abroad. As the two men make their way through Germany, the Alps, and Italy, they encounter situations made all the more humorous by their reactions to them. The narrator plays the part of the American tourist of the time, believing that he understands all that he sees, but in reality understanding none of it.

Author: Mark Twain Format: eBook Release Date: 21/11/2017

Conversation, as it was by the Social Fireside, in the Time of the Tudors. or simply 1601 is the title of a short risque squib by Mark Twain, first published anonymously in 1880, and finally acknowledged by the author in 1906. Written as an extract from the diary of one of Queen Elizabeth I's ladies-in-waiting, the pamphlet purports to record a conversation between Elizabeth and several famous writers of the day. The topics discussed are entirely scatological, notably farting and sex.

Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court

Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court

Author: Mark Twain Format: eBook Release Date: 18/11/2017

One of the greatest satires in American literature, Mark Twain's A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court begins when Hank Morgan, a skilled mechanic in a nineteenth-century New England arms factory, is struck on the head during a quarrel and awakens to find himself among the knights and magicians of King Arthur's Camelot. The 'Yankee' vows brashly to "e;boss the whole country inside of three weeks"e; and embarks on an ambitious plan to modernize Camelot with 19th c. industrial inventions like electricity and gunfire. It isn't long before all hell breaks loose!Written in 1889, Mark Twain's novel is one of literature's first genre mash-ups and one of the first works to feature time travel. It is one of the best known Twain stories, and also one of his most unique. Twain uses the story concept to launch a social commentary on contemporary society, a thinly veiled critique of the contemporary times despite the Old World setting. While the dark pessimism that would fully blossom in Twain's later works can be discerned in A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court, the novel will nevertheless be remembered primarily for its wild leaps of imagination, brilliant wit, and entertaining storytelling.

Adventures of Huckleberry Finn

Author: Mark Twain Format: eBook Release Date: 07/11/2017

Mark Twain's tale of a boy's picaresque journey down the Mississippi on a raft conveyed the voice and experience of the American frontier as no other work has done before. When Huck escapes from his drunken father and the 'sivilizing' Widow Douglas with the runaway slave Jim, he embarks on a series of adventures that draw him to feuding families and the trickery of the unscrupulous 'Duke' and 'Daupin'. Beneath the exploits, however, are more serious undercurrents - of slavery, adult control and, above all, of Huck's struggle between his instinctive goodness and the corrupt values of society, which threaten his deep and enduring frienship with Jim. All modern American literature comes from "e;Huckleberry Finn"e;. It's the best book we've had. -Ernest HemingwayProbably the most stupendous event of my whole life. -Henry Louis Mencken[Huck is] one of the permanent symbolic figures of fiction, not unworthy to take a place with Ulysses, Faust, Don Quixote, Don Juan, Hamlet -T. S. EliotThe mark of how good 'Huckleberry Finn' has to be is that one can compare it to a number of our best modern American novels and it stands up page for page, awkward here, sensational there - absolutely the equal of one of those rare incredible first novels that come along once or twice in a decade. -Norman MailerThe first truly American writer, and all of us since are his heirs. -William Faulkner

Adventures of Huckleberry Finn is a novel by Mark Twain. It is told in the first person by Huckleberry "e;Huck"e; Finn, a friend of Tom Sawyer and narrator of two other Twain novels. The book is noted for its colorful description of people and places along the Mississippi River. Set in a Southern antebellum society that had ceased to exist about 20 years before the work was published, Adventures of Huckleberry Finn is an often scathing satire on entrenched attitudes, particularly racism. Perennially popular with readers, Adventures of Huckleberry Finn has also been the continued object of study by literary critics since its publication. It was criticized upon release because of its coarse language and became even more controversial in the 20th century because of its perceived use of racial stereotypes and because of its frequent use of the racial slur "e;nigger"e;, despite arguments that the protagonist and the tenor of the book are anti-racist.

DOG'S TALE

DOG'S TALE

Author: Mark Twain Format: eBook Release Date: 16/10/2017

A sentimental short story praised for its moving plot and condemnation of scientific experimentation on animals, Mark Twain efficiently delivers a truly captivating piece. First appearing in Harper's Magazine in 1903, A Dogs Tale was later published as a pamphlet for the National Anti-Vivisection Society. The tale focuses on the life of Aileen, a misunderstood dog who experiences the ups and downs of life, while cruelly subjected to suffering because of the shallow belief of her inferiority amidst humans.The story is told from the point of view of Aileen Mavourneen, a self-proclaimed Presbyterian, whose mother is a Collie, and father is a St. Bernard. The story begins with Aileen's life as a puppy, living together with her mother until she is later taken in by a loving family. Life at her new home seems perfect, as she lives in a well adorned house, and has an open space where she is free to roam and play with other dogs. Subsequently, the household welcomes the arrival of the owner's baby and Aileen's puppy, which adds joy to the home. However, the idyllic days are brought to a halt when a terrible accident occurs, prompting Aileen to risk her own life to save her owner's infant from harm's way. Despite the heroic deed, Aileen is rewarded with the utmost brutality that changes her life forever. A compelling piece of literature, A Dogs Tale efficiently depicts the dark and inconsiderate nature of humans, which is contrasted with the benign and loyal nature of dogs. Guaranteed to make one's heart tingle, the short story evokes many powerful emotions throughout its short, yet overpowering pages.Twain successfully creates a piece that will captivate its audience, leaving them incapable of feeling indifferent to such a powerful message presented in the piece. Furthermore, Twain's effectiveness to illustrate the inhumane and inconsiderate treatment of animals is heightened by allowing the audience to enter the mind of a dog and observe and feel life on the other side of the coin. Supplying a generous serving of humor, irony, love, cruelty, and heartfelt moments, A Dogs Tale encourages humanity to take a step back and carefully reflect on their actions and reconsider the roles played by both humans and animals in society.The Audio Book of this title is also available for free at www.iboo.com/en/audio-books

A never-before-published, previously unfinished Mark Twain children's story is brought to life by Caldecott Medal winners Philip Stead and Erin Stead.In a hotel in Paris one evening in the 1879, Mark Twain sat with his young daughters, who begged their father for a story. Choosing a picture from a magazine to get started, Twain began telling them the tale of Johnny, a poor boy in possession of some magical seeds, who finds himself on a quest to rescue a stolen prince. Later, Twain would jot down some rough notes about the story, but the tale was left unfinished . . . until now.Plucked from the Mark Twain archives at the University of California, Berkeley, Twain's notes now form the foundation of a fairy tale picked up over a century later. With only Twain's fragmentary script and a story that stops partway as his guide, author Philip Stead has written a tale that imagines what might have been if Twain had fully realized this work. This is a story that reaches through time and brings us the debut children's book of America's most legendary writer, envisioned by one of today's most important names in children's literature.Read by Keegan-Michael Key and Philip Stead, with Mark Bramhall as the voice of Mark Twain, Julia Whelan as Susy Clemens, and an Editor's Note read by Frances Gilbert.

Tramp Abroad

Tramp Abroad

Author: Mark Twain Format: eBook Release Date: 25/09/2017

A Tramp Abroad is a work of travel literature, including a mixture of autobiography and fictional events, by American author Mark Twain, published in 1880. The book details a journey by the author, with his friend Harris (a character created for the book, and based on his closest friend, Joseph Twichell), through central and southern Europe. While the stated goal of the journey is to walk most of the way, the men find themselves using other forms of transport as they traverse the continent. The book is the third of Mark Twain's five travel books and is often thought to be an unofficial sequel to the first one, The Innocents Abroad. As the two men make their way through Germany, the Alps, and Italy, they encounter situations made all the more humorous by their reactions to them. The narrator (Twain) plays the part of the American tourist of the time, believing that he understands all that he sees, but in reality understanding none of it.

First serialized in "e;The Century Magazine"e; between 1893 and 1894, Mark Twain's "e;Pudd'nhead Wilson"e; is a murder mystery set before the American Civil War in Missouri, more specifically, in a town on the banks of the Mississippi River.

Because the black baby grows up thinking he is white, he is highly racist toward his slaves. The white baby, who thinks he is a slave, grows up with no guidance and makes a living stealing, drinking, and doing other immoral things. During a murder trial, the town lawyer Puddn'head Wilson, who is seen as a peculiar fellow by the townsfolk, is able to expose the boys' true identities. "e;Puddn'head Wilson"e; is a story carried by themes of racism, Southern customs, and questions of identity. On the surface it is a witty and satirical tale but as one digs deeper a biting social commentary of racial inequality can be found. This edition includes a biographical afterword.

Samuel Clemens / Mark Twain (1835-1910) war vor allem als Autor der Bucher uber die Abenteuer von Tom Sawyer und Huckleberry Finn bekannt. Ab 1855 lebte er in St. Louis und plante, Lotse auf einem Mississippidampfer zu werden. Er begann eine entsprechende Ausbildung, erhielt 1859 seine Lizenz und war bis 1861 in dem Beruf tatig. Der Ausbruch des Sezessionskriegs 1861 brachte die Flussschifffahrt auf dem Mississippi und dem Missouri zum Erliegen, und Clemens wurde arbeitslos. Er setzte sich mit seinem Bruder Orion nach Westen ab. Samuel meldete sich in der neu gegrundeten Siedlung Virginia City, Nevada, in der Menschen aus verschiedenen Landern zusammentrafen, als Goldgraber. Doch war die Arbeit in den Minen beschwerlich und finanziell wenig ertragreich. Daher arbeitete Clemens als Reporter fur den Territorial Enterprise in Virginia City. Er berichtete aus den Saloons der Goldgraberstadt und brachte Klatschgeschichten, die manchmal hart an der Grenze zur Verleumdung lagen. 1863 musste er wegen eines Streits fluchtartig die Stadt verlassen. Jedenfalls hatte er mit seinen gut ausgeschmuckten Reportagen fur den Territorial Enterprise einen Anteil an dem Mythos, der sich rund um den "e;Wilden Westen"e; bildete. Seine Reisebucher basieren auf Schiffsreise nach Europa und in den Nahen Osten, die er 1867 unternahm. Twain verarbeitete Erlebnisse und Erfahrungen seiner zweiten Europareise von 1878, die ihn durch Deutschland, die Schweiz und Italien fuhrte. Er veroffentlichte im Anhang auch den beruhmten Aufsatz Die schreckliche deutsche Sprache, in dem er humorvoll die Eigenheiten und Schwierigkeiten der deutschen Sprache erlautert. Besonders pragte ihn jedoch laut seiner Reisebeschreibung der dreimonatige Aufenthalt in Heidelberg und dessen kurpfalzischer Umgebung, von der er begeistert schrieb.

Adventures of Huckleberry Finn (often shortened to Huck Finn) is a novel written by American humorist Mark Twain. It is commonly used and accounted as one of the first Great American Novels. It is also one of the first major American novels written using Local Color Regionalism, or vernacular, told in the first person by the eponymous Huckleberry "e;Huck"e; Finn, best friend of Tom Sawyer and hero of three other Mark Twain books. The book is noted for its colorful description of people and places along the Mississippi River. By satirizing Southern antebellum society that was already a quarter-century in the past by the time of publication, the book is an often scathing look at entrenched attitudes, particularly racism. The drifting journey of Huck and his friend Jim, a runaway slave, down the Mississippi River on their raft may be one of the most enduring images of escape and freedom in all of American literature.

A masterpiece of babelfishien nonsense dating from well before babelfish was even a gleam in the binary code of its creator (1903). Best appreciated if you can read both French and English, but even if you skip the french version it's truly brilliant. If you have ever translated random text using babelfish just because it's funny, don't miss this book. As good old Samuel Clemens himself put it in his foreword "e;I cannot speak the French language, but I can translate very well, though not fast, I being self-educated."e;

Adventures of Huckleberry Finn (Golden Deer Classics)

Author: Mark Twain, Golden Deer Classics Format: eBook Release Date: 08/07/2017

Adventures of Huckleberry Finn (often shortened to Huck Finn) is a novel written by American humorist Mark Twain. It is commonly used and accounted as one of the first Great American Novels. It is also one of the first major American novels written using Local Color Regionalism, or vernacular, told in the first person by the eponymous Huckleberry "e;Huck"e; Finn, best friend of Tom Sawyer and hero of three other Mark Twain books. The book is noted for its colorful description of people and places along the Mississippi River. By satirizing Southern antebellum society that was already a quarter-century in the past by the time of publication, the book is an often scathing look at entrenched attitudes, particularly racism. The drifting journey of Huck and his friend Jim, a runaway slave, down the Mississippi River on their raft may be one of the most enduring images of escape and freedom in all of American literature.

Author: Mark Twain Format: eBook Release Date: 06/07/2017

Whether he's sneaking doughnuts, mooning over a pretty girl, or snookering the local boys to do his work for him, Tom Sawyer is the consummate schemer-but his charm and easygoing nature keep him from being in anyone's bad graces for long. However, when Tom teams up with his friend Huck Finn, their sleepy Missouri town had better watch out. Based on Mark Twain's memories of growing up along the Mississippi River, The Adventures of Tom Sawyer is both an idyllic picture of boyhood and an affectionate satire of adult conventions.

Dog's Tale

Dog's Tale

Author: Mark Twain Format: eBook Release Date: 05/07/2017

'A Dog's Tale' is a story written by Mark Twain. The book is told from the standpoint of a loyal household pet, a dog self described by the first sentence of the story; "e;My father was a St. Bernard, my mother was a collie, but I am a Presbyterian."e; The story begins with a description of the dog's life as a puppy and her separation from her mother, which to her was inexplicable. Her puppy and her owner's new child were soon added to her new home. When a fire breaks out in the nursery, the dog risks her life to drag the baby to safety. In the process, her motives are misunderstood and she is cruelly beaten. Soon however, the truth of the situation is discovered and she receives no end of praise. Later in the story, her puppy dies as a result of the owner's biological experiments. Only a servant seems to realize the irony, exclaiming, "e;Poor little doggie, you saved HIS child!"e; In the end, the dog pines inconsolable over the grave of the puppy with the clear implication that she will do so until death.
