MARK TWAIN was born Samuel Langhorne Clemens in Florida, Missouri, in 1835. He left school at the age of 12, was apprenticed to a printer and then went on to become a Mississippi riverboat pilot, journalist, humorist, travel writer, and publisher. Twain first won fame with his story "The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County," published in 1865. The Adventures of Huckle- berry Finn was published in 1884. It is mainly on this work that Twain's literary reputation rests, for in it he created Huck Finn, one of fiction's most memorable characters. Although he made a fortune from his writing. Twain's involvement in various failed business schemes led him close to bankruptcy, and towards the end of his life he was forced to go oa lecture tours to pay his debts. Twain died in Redding, Connecticut, in 1910.

Work Description

Adventures of Huckleberry Finn or as it is known in more recent editions, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, is a novel by American author Mark Twain, which was first published in the United Kingdom in December 1884 and in the United States in February 1885.

Commonly named among the Great American Novels, the work is among the first in major American literature to be written throughout in vernacular English, characterized by local color regionalism. It is told in the first person by Huckleberry "Huck" Finn, the narrator of two other Twain novels (Tom Sawyer Abroad and Tom Sawyer, Detective) and a friend of Tom Sawyer. It is a direct sequel to The Adventures of Tom Sawyer.
