Mark Twain (Samuel Langhorne Clemens) 1835-1910

No author in American literature is better known or more loved than Samuel Langhorne Clemens. Born in Missouri in 1835, he grew up on the banks of the Mississippi River and later adopted the pen name of “Mark Twain” from the call of the boatmen on the Mississippi as they measured the depth of the river. Ни автор, в американской литературе не более известен и более любимым, чем Сэмюэль Клеменс Langhorne. Родился в штате Миссури в 1835 году, он вырос на берегах реки Миссисипи и позже принял псевдоним “Марк Твен” от звонка из гребцов на Миссисипи, как они измерили глубину реки.

The river environment inspired the two novels which brought him his greatest fame: Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn. Another book, Life on the Mississippi, told of his adventures on the riverboats of that period. Речную среду вдохновила двух романов, которые принесли ему наибольшую известность его: Тома Сойера и Гекльберри Финна. Другая книга, Жизнь на Миссисипи, рассказал о своих приключениях на речных судах того времени.

It was during the Civil War that Mark Twain’s life as a writer started. At that time he was working as a newspaper man in Nevada and California. His short story, “The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County,” was an immediate success and his new career began. Это было во время гражданской войны, что жизнь Марка Твена как писателя началась. В то время он работал как газетчик в Неваде и Калифорнии. Его рассказ «Знаменитая Лягушачьи прыжки графства Calaveras”, был мгновенный успех и его новая карьера.

In 1870, Mark Twain married Olivia Langdon. He had fallen in love with her picture even before he met her. According to his biographers, his wife had a great influence on Twain’s later books. В 1870 году Марк Твен женился Оливии Лэнгдон. Он влюбился в ее изображение даже прежде, чем он встретил ее. По словам его биографов, его жена оказала большое влияние на более поздних книгах Твена.

Mark Twain was also a very successful lecturer. His travels around the country giving talks on variety of subjects helped make him famous and increased the sale of his books. Марк Твен был также очень успешным лектором. Его поездки по стране проводить беседы на различные темы помогли сделать его известным и увеличила продажи своих книг.

Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn are considered Twain’s best works. They are marked by humor and satire and provide his readers with an excellent picture of his era. His last book was completed in 1909, one year before his death. He was then 74 years old. Тома Сойера и Гекльберри Финна Твен считаются лучшими работами. Их отличают юмора и сатиры и предоставлять своим читателям отличную картину своей эпохи. Его последняя книга была закончена в 1909 году, за год до его смерти. Ему было тогда 74 лет.
