Samuel Langhorne Clemens (Florida, Missouri, 30 de novembro de1835 — Redding, Connecticut, 21 de abril de 1910), mais conhecido pelo pseudônimo Mark Twain, foi um escritor e humorista norte-americano. É mais conhecido pelos romances The Adventures of Tom Sawyer (1876) e sua sequência Adventures of Huckleberry Finn(1885), este último frequentemente chamado de "O Maior Romance Americano". Twain cresceu em Hannibal, Missouri, que mais tarde serviria de inspiração e cenário para Huckleberry Finn e Tom Sawyer. Após laborar como tipógrafo em diversas cidades, ajudou Orion, seu irmão mais velho, na administração de um jornal. Na ocasião, exerceu diferentes funções, como impressor, tipógrafo e colunista. Tornou-se em seguida piloto de barcos a vapor no Rio Mississippi, antes de se dirigir ao oeste para juntar-se a Orion em diligências a serviço do governo. A jornada com o irmão terminou quando Twain decidiu trabalhar como mineiro na extração de prata. Frustrado em mais esse intento, experimentou posteriormente carreira no jornalismo. Enquanto repórter, escreveu o conto humorístico The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County, que alcançou imensa popularidade e atraiu para seu autor atenção nacional. Seus diários de viagem, lançados depois, também foram um sucesso. Twain encontrara sua aptidão.
