Mark Twain, his real name, Samuel Langhorne Clemens wasn't just an author but also a humorist, whose work is set apart by his mocking humor or biting social satire (Mark Bio). Twain's writing is also known for realism of place and language, classic characters, and hatred of hypocrisy, oppression and his overall practicality in the way he writes.

He will tell his story in his…
