Who is Mark Twain?

Mark Twain (November 30, 1835 – April 21, 1910)

Samuel Langhorne Clemens, better known by his pen name Mark Twain, was an American writer, humorist, entrepreneur, publisher, and lecturer. Among his novels are The Adventures of Tom Sawyer (1875) and its sequel, the Adventures of Huckleberry Finn (1885), the latter often called “The Great American Novel”.

Twain earned a great deal of money from his writings and lectures, but he invested in ventures that lost most of it. The Paige Compositor, a mechanical typesetter was one of his notable ventures that failed because of its complexity and imprecision. He filed for bankruptcy in the wake of these financial setbacks, but he eventually overcame his financial troubles. He chose to pay all his pre-bankruptcy creditors in full, even after he had no legal responsibility to do so.

Twain was born shortly after an appearance of Halley’s Comet, and he predicted that he would “go out with it” as well. Fortuitously, he died the day after the comet returned. He was lauded as the “greatest humorist America produced”, and William Faulkner called him “the father of American literature”. Source: Wikipedia
