Mark Twain was an American writer who lived in the period 1835-1910. His works combine humor, social criticism and moralism. His literary legacy consists of many travel narratives such as 'The Innocents Abroad' and 'Life on the Mississippi' but he gained wide popularity with his adventure stories of boyhood 'The Adventures of Tom Sawyer' and 'The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn' which was called by some the first Great American Novel. Although many of Mark Twain’s works have been censored at times for various reasons, he is held to have been America’s 'greatest humorist' by some and 'the father of American literature' by others.
