More About Mark Twain
Mark Twain, born Samuel Langhorne Clemens in 1835, led one of the most exciting of literary lives. Raised in the river town of Hannibal, Missouri, Twain had to leave school at age 12 and was successively a journeyman printer, a steamboat pilot, a halfhearted Confederate soldier, and a prospector, miner, and reporter in the western territories. His experiences furnished him with a wide knowledge of humanity, as well as with the perfect grasp of local customs and speech which manifests itself in his writing. With the publication in 1865 of The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County, Twain gained national attention as a frontier humorist, and the bestselling Innocents Abroad solidified his fame. But it wasn't until Life on the Mississippi (1883), and finally, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn (1885), that he was recognized by the literary establishment as one of the greatest writers America would ever produce. Toward the end of his life, plagued by personal tragedy and financial failure, Twain grew more and more pessimistic--an outlook not alleviated by his natural skepticism and sarcasm. Though his fame continued to widen--Yale & Oxford awarded him honorary degrees--Twain spent his last years in gloom and exasperation, writing fables about "the damned human race."
Mark Twain lived in Hannibal, in the state of Missouri. Mark Twain was born in 1835 and died in 1910.
Reviews - What do customers think about Tom Sawyer (Bring the Classics to Life: Level 2)?
Not as Expected Apr 29, 2010
This book is not an abridged children's version as I had originally thought. It is a reading/workbook for children. It has vocabulary words, definitions, and a workbook section. It does have different parts of the story for the children to read, but it's not a chapter book. In my opinion, it's the deluxe cliff notes version of Tom Sawyer. I will keep it and use it, but I plan on purchasing Tom Sawyer in it's entirety. I plan on taking my children (ages 8, 6, 3, 1) to Hannibal, MO this summer, so this book will at least give the kids some idea of who Tom is.
