Mark Twain is truly an American treasure. First and foremost, he was a great novelist. “Huckleberry Finn” is often called the quintessential American novel and the book that began modern American writing. His other works, including “Tom Sawyer” & “A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court” helped to define American fiction. His short stories are still included in the anthologies used by students more than a century after his death.
He is just as well remembered for his amazing wit. Although not a comedian, his witticisms influenced comic writers from HL Mencken to Dennis Miller. He was an investor, public speaker, friend to presidents and the poor.
