If you tell the truth, you don’t have to remember anything
November 30, 1835 – April 21, 1910
Samuel Langhorne Clemens was an American author, jurnalist and humorist who wrote „the Great American Novel”.
After an apprenticeship with a printer, he worked as a typesetter and contributed articles to the newspaper of his older brother, Orion. He later became a riverboat pilot on the Mississippi River (where he found his pen-name).
Twain was born shortly after a visit by Halley’s Comet, and he predicted that he would „go out with it,” too. He died the day following the comet’s subsequent return. He was lauded as the „greatest American humorist of his age,” and William Faulkner called Twain „the father of American literature”.
