About Mark Twain

Mark Twain was born Samuel Langhorne Clemens on November 30, 1835 in Florida, Missouri. In 1839, his family moved to Hannibal, Missouri. Many folks recommend that the family moved due to the death of Sam's young sister Margaret. It was in Hannibal that Sam witnessed several details he would later incorporate into his novels. For example, he witnessed slaves being mistreated (synonymous to Jim in The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn), and civilized individuals acting crazy and violent (like the Grangerfords and the Shepherdsons). Sam even had a right friend in Hannibal called Tom, who may do as he pleased and was rather wild. Tom eventually became the character of Huckleberry Finn.

Other tragic occasions, aside within the death of Sam's young sister, influenced Twain. His young brother Benjamin equally became ill and died. Next, his elder brother Orion left the family company to function as a printer's apprentice for the Hannibal Journal newspaper. In 1847, Sam's dad, John Clemens, died of pneumonia. Sam went to function with his brother at the Journal. This is where Sam initially developed his writing abilities. Later, he moved to St. Louis, where he got a job functioning at the St. Louis Evening News as a typesetter. He didn't remain there lengthy, and later moved to New York City and then Philadelphia. He invested a great deal of time traveling all over the planet, and eventually, in 1859, Twain got his river pilot's license. Sam liked this lifetime a lot and his numerous experiences found on the river would later be included into his novels.

Events in American history such the Civil War, the gold rush, and moving west, became significant themes for Twain. While functioning for the Nevada Territorial Enterprise, Sam initially wrote under his pen name, Mark Twain.

Twain would later fall in love with Olivia Langdon, his spouse and mom to his 4 kids. The early deaths of his youngsters would later cause bouts of depression and psychological suffering.

In 1888, Twain earned a Master of Arts degree from Yale University. He then was granted 2 honorary Doctor of Letters levels from Yale in 1901, and the University of Missouri in 1902. His functions include: The Innocents Abroad, The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, The Prince and the Pauper, Life found on the Mississippi, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn and A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court. In 1910, Samuel Langhorne Clemens died at age 75 in his Connecticut house.
