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.

"e;Meine philologischen Studien haben mich davon uberzeugt, dass ein begabter Mensch Englisch (auer Rechtschreibung und Aussprache) in 30 Stunden, Franzosisch in 30 Tagen und Deutsch in 30 Jahren lernen kann."e;Mit bissigem Humor beschreibt Mark Twain, der 1878 auf seiner zweiten Europareise auch Deutschland besuchte, die Absonderlichkeiten der deutschen Sprache: kilometerlange Worter, Satze, bei denen nach einer Viertelstunde ganz zum Schluss das Verb kommt, "e;und hinter das Verb stellt der Verfasser noch haben sind gewesen gehabt haben geworden sein"e;. Das ist auerst amusant zu lesen, zumal wenn man, wie hier, das Original daneben hat, in dem die deutschen Worter noch fremdartiger wirken. Und ganz nebenbei lernt man dadurch die eigene Sprache noch besser kennen.

Complete Short Stories of Mark Twain

Author: Mark Twain Format: eBook Release Date: 27/09/2018

This comprehensive collection of Twain's short stories showcases his immense talent, humor, and wit. Considered to be the greatest American humorist of all time, Mark Twain was born in 1835 and was raised in Hannibal, Missouri, where many of his most well-known stories take place. Twain led an adventurous life: working as a type setter for his brother's newspaper as a young man, then as a riverboat pilot on the Missouri river, followed by a stint as a miner in Nevada and California, and then finally as a journalist and writer, where he found success and fame. These experiences would form the basis of many of his most famous tales, such as "e;The Celebrated Jumping Frog from Calaveras County,"e; the first story to bring him national attention and fame and was based on a tale he heard while mining in California. While Twain may be best known for his accomplishments as a novelist, this collection of short stories spanning his lengthy and prolific career showcases his brilliant ability to create fascinating characters, his expert plotting, and his unrivaled wit and humor. This edition includes a biographical afterword.

Innocents Abroad (with an Introduction by Edward P. Hingston)

Innocents Abroad (with an Introduction by Edward P. Hingston)

Author: Mark Twain Format: eBook Release Date: 27/09/2018

Fully entitled "e;The Innocents Abroad, or the New Pilgrims' Progress,"e; Twain's colorful travelogue is a compilation of the newspaper articles he wrote while on a cruise to Europe, Egypt, and the Holy Land with other American tourists in 1867. His account frequently uses humor to describe the people and places he visits, although this becomes highly satiric at times as Twain becomes frustrated with European profiteering, a pointless historical anecdote in Gibraltar, and the overly institutionalized nature of countries like Italy. Where he critiques, however, he also feels a strange reverence, as in the Canary Islands and the Holy Land. A more serious theme also flows through Twain's experience. Twain sees the conflict between history and the modern world as he travels with his New World compatriots through the lands of ancient civilizations, ultimately discovering that you can't believe everything you read in travel guidebooks. This landmark work finds Twain searching for the American identity as it increasingly casts its shadow over the world of Old Europe. This edition includes an introduction by Edward P. Hingston and a biographical afterword.

He apprenticed with a printer. He also worked as a typesetter and contributed articles to his older brother Orions newspaper. After toiling as a printer in various cities, he became a master riverboat pilot on the Mississippi River, before heading west to join Orion. He was a failure at gold mining, so he next turned to journalism. While a reporter, he wrote a humorous story, The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County, which proved to be very popular and brought him nationwide attention. His travelogues were also well-received.He achieved great success as a writer and public speaker. His wit and satire earned praise from critics and peers, and he was a friend to presidents, artists, industrialists, and European royalty.However, he lacked financial acumen. Though he made a great deal of money from his writings and lectures, he squandered it on various ventures, in particular the Paige Compositor, and was forced to declare bankruptcy. With the help of Henry Huttleston Rogers, however, he eventually overcame his financial troubles. Twain worked hard to ensure that all of his creditors were paid in full, even though his bankruptcy had relieved him of the legal responsibility.Twain died on April 21, 1910, having survived his children Langdon, Susan and Jean as well as his wife, Olivia. In his lifetime, he became a distinguished member of the literati, and was honored by Yale, the University of Missouri, and Oxford with literary degrees.

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 / softback 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.

Life on the Mississippi

Life on the Mississippi

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.

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;
