Mark Twain.
 His real name was Samuel Langhorne Clemens, but
he is better known by his pen name Mark Twain.
One of the most important figures in American literary
history it holds a unique position in American
literature. He was not only a great writer, he was also
a famous humorist
Birthplace of Mark Twain
He was born in Florida, Missouri, on November 30,
1835. He was the son of storekeeper-lawyer father.
His father’s name was John Marshal Clemens. His
mother’s name was Jane Lampton Clemens.
Mother of Mark Twain
The writer's mother Jane Lampton Clemens, was
a very kind and sincere person, she was the idol
of the writer. Samuel inherited from her amazing
sense of humor and extraordinary emotional
Father of Mark Twain
Father of Mark Twain, John
Marshal was simple, for several
years kept a shop.
Brothers of Mark Twain
 He had two brothers: Orion – he was the
eldest and Genry – he was the youngest.
Childhood of Mark
When he was four years old, his family moved
to the small town of Hannibal. Here, the future
writer spent his childhood. He was a troubled
boy, despite his poor health, to 9 years boy
already smoked.
Youthful years
 Sam never finished elementary school because of his
father’s death. John Clemens died when Sam was
about 12 years old. But Samuel got his education
chiefly in the school of experience and from his keen
observation of people and events common to the
western bank of the Mississippi River.
The death of Sam’s father
 In 1847, the death of Sam’s father, brought an end to his
carefree days. He had to go to work at the age of 12 as a
printer’s apprentice. In three years he went to work as a printer
for his brother Orion, publisher of the Hannibal Journal. Samuel
worked for his brother Orion as foreman, sub-editor, a feature
writer and doubtlessly learned a good deal about writing. A
worker from Scotland (his name was Machfarlane) made Sam
be interested in literature. He read a lot.
New York
 When he was 17, Samuel left Hannibal and
wandered east-ward as far as New York.
Pilot’s license
 At the age of 21, Samuel returned to the river to
realize an old ambition, he wanted to be a
Mississippi River steamboat pilot. And in 1857, after
18 months’ apprenticeship as pilot of the steamboat,
which was called “PAUL JONES”, Samuel
Langhorne Clemens earned his own steamboat
pilot’s license.
Career as Mark Twain
 In 1861, when the Civil War between the Southern or
Confederate States of America and the Northern part
of America began and disrupted Mississippi River
traffic, Samuel Clemens’ career as a steamboat pilot
ended. But at the same time his career as Mark
Twain, the writer, was about to begin.
Family life of Mark Twain
In 1870 he married Olivia Langdon, the sister of his friend
Charles Langdon, whom he met during the cruise.
Children of Mark Twain
 Twain had 4 children: 3 daughters and a son,
Lengdone, who died in 1872 at the age of 2.
Residence of Samuel
1871, Twain with his family settled in Hartford,
Connecticut. This town was not only
rich and comfortable, but lived an intense life.
Virginia City Territorial
Nevada’s leading frontier newspaper, it was called the
Virginia City Territorial Enterprise, printed several of
Samuel’s colourful and humorous sketches of frontier life
and finally offered him a job as an editor. Within two years he
was known throughout the western frontier as the “ Wild
Humorist of the Pacific Slope ”.
Famous books of Mark Twain
 By December 1864, Mark Twain was forced to leave Virginia
City after he and rival newspaper tried to settle a difference of
opinion by fighting a duel. He went from Virginia City to San
Francisco, a city shill caught up in the excitement of gold fever.
While there he published a miner’s yarn, “ The Celebrated
Jumping Frog of Calaveras Country “. The tale was an
immediate success and it made the name of Mark Twain
famous all over the USA.
Famous books of Mark Twain
 It was in Hartford, In the years between 1871 and 1891, that
Twain wrote his two masterpieces: “ The Adventures of Tom
Sawyer” (1876) and “The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn”
(1884). These novels – together with other Twain writting of the
period: “A Tramp abroad” – 1886, “The Prince and the Pauper”
– 1882, “Life on the Mississippi” – 1883, and “A Connecticut
Yankee in King Arthur’s Court – 1889, are felt by many critics to
mark the beginning of modern American literature.
Famous books of Mark Twain
 All of Twain’s books are modeled from the days of his past; in
most of them he is the hero. “Roughing It” and “Life on the
Mississippi” are almost completely autobiographical; “ The
Innocents Abroad” caricaturizes the gullible American tourist;
“The Prince and the Pauper” expresses Twain’s hatred of
injustice and of the need for mercy.
Famous books of Mark Twain
 As he grew older, Twain grew increasingly depressed and
disillusioned by what called “Its damned human race”, and her
later works such as “Pudd’nhead Wilson” (1899) and “The
Mysterious Stranger”
( published posthumously in 1916) mirror his growing
bitterness. “The Mysterious Strange”, his last book, is an
allegory that suggests that life is in reality only a dream.
Quotes By Mark Twain
 A banker is a fellow who lends you his umbrella when the sun is
shining, but wants it back the minute it begins to rain.
A classic is something that everybody wants to have read and
nobody wants to read.
A human being has a natural desire to have more of a good thing than
he needs.
A lie can travel halfway around the world while the truth is putting on
its shoes.
A man cannot be comfortable without his own approval.
All you need in this life is ignorance and confidence; then success is
Always acknowledge a fault. This will throw those in authority off
their guard and give you an opportunity to commit more.
Always do right. This will gratify some people and astonish the rest.
An enemy can partly ruin a man, but it takes a good-natured
injudicious friend to complete the thing and make it perfect.
An Englishman is a person who does things because they have been
done before. An American is a person who does things because they
haven't been done before.
Bankruptcy with debts
 Twain’s success as an author, public speaker,
husband and father, was not reflected in his choice of
business investments. In April 1894, he declared
bankruptcy with debts totaling $ 94,000.
Nevertheless, by 1898, true to his Midwest code of
ethics Twain had paid off all his obligations, although
during those 4 difficult intervening years he had
endured the added burden of ill health and the death
of his daughter, Suzy.
Returning to the USA
 As the height of his fame, Twain and his family
returned to the USA after nine years of self imposed
exile. His popularity was so great that he was
deluged with honours and invitation to lecture, and
by the turn of the twentieth century, he was one of
the best known public figures in the USA, and worldfamous as well.
Two personal losses
 The joy of his success, however, was dulled by two
personal losses: the death of his wife in 1904 and his young
daughter Jean, five years later (Suzy died at the age of 25).
Twain had 4 children: 3 daughters and a son, Lengdone,
who died in 1872 at the age of 2.
The death of Mark Twain
Mark Twain died on April 21, 1910 from quinsy. Mark
Twain is buried in the cemetery Woodlan in Elmira (new
York state).After the death of Mark Twain there are
plenty of books.
“I came in with Harlley’s Comet in 1835. It is coming
againe next year, and I expect to go out with it”.
My opinion about Mark Twain
 Mark Twain left his mark upon American literature.
The stories he told still delight millions of people
around the world. What he wrote was full of the
gusto of the west and the colourful life he had
known intimately and recorded as a student of
human nature and the common life. What he left
as an added legacy is the inspiration of a man,
who rose above setbacks and tragedy to carry on,
sustained by his indomitable spirit of creativity.
 I think that Маrk Twain was really a great poet. He
was “for all time”. I suggest to my friends to read
his great works.
