Mark Twain

Mark Twain was born in the state of Missouri in the United States in 1835. His father was an unsuccessful lawyer. The family seldom lived more than a year or two in the same town. That is why the future writer did not even finish secondary school. He went to work at the age of 12. For two years he worked for his elder brother's small newspaper both as a printer and reporter. In 1857 he became a pilot on the Mississipi river. He continued to write. In 1876 he wrote "The Adventures of Tom Sawyer". The book was read by everybody, by the young and old and was translated into nearly every language in the world. "The Adventures of Tom Sawyer" was such a success that in 1884 he wrote "The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn", and then "Tom Sawyer Abroad" and "Tom Sawyer the Detective" in 1896. There were many other books written by Mark Twain. But his novels about Tom Sawyer and his friend Huckleberry Finn brought him world fame. Mark Twain's real name was Sammuel Clemens. He took his penname from the words "to mark" and "twain" which were used by leadsmen on the steamboats to mark the depth of two fathoms. Марк Твен родился в штате Миссури в Соединенных Штатах Америки в 1835 году. Его отец был неудачливым юристом. Семья редко жила в одном и том же городе более 1-2 лет. Вот почему будущий писатель даже не закончил среднюю школу. Он пошел работать в возрасте 12 лет. Два года он работал печатником и репортером в редакции небольшой газеты, принадлежащей старшему брату. В 1857 году он стал лоцманом, плавая по реке Миссисипи и продолжал писать. В 1876 году он написал "Приключения Тома Сойера". Книгу читали все - дети и взрослые, она была переведена почти на все языки мира. "Приключения Тома Сойера" име­ли такой успех, что в 1884 году он написал "Приключения Гекльберри Финна", и затем "Том Сойер за границей" в "Том Сойер - сыщик", вышедшие в 1896 г. Марк Твен написал еще много других книг, но всемирную известность ему принесли его романы о Томе Сойере я Гекльберри Финне. Настоящее имя Марка Твена было Сэмюэль Клеменс. Он избрал себе в качестве псевдонима выражение "марктвен", которое у лоцманов на пароходах обозначало глубину в две морские сажени.
