A Tiny Biography of Mark Twain Ever A Gold Digger!
Sam Clemens never finished what he started — before the age of twenty-five, that is. By age twenty-five he had quit school to work for a newspaper typesetter, quit setting type to pilot a Mississippi steamer, quit river-boating to join the Confederate Army and shortly thereafter, deserted the army to go West and dig for riches. Thankfully for generations of readers, he found none; and, while recouping his losses, he instead latched onto a bit of wisdom that would change the landscape of American literature. “There comes a time in every rightly constructed boy’s life that he has a raging desire to go somewhere and dig for hidden treasure.” Which is Twain’s birth place? Florida? Missouri?
Mark Twain was born Samuel Langhorne Clemens in Florida, Missouri, on 30 November 1835. As he later said, he was brought in on Halley’s Comet and wished to go out on its return. He was raised in Hannibal, on the Missouri banks of the

Mississippi. He was the sixth of seven children. At age twelve, sometime after his father’s death in 1847, he left school and apprenticed at a local printer’s shop. There, in what Abraham Lincoln later called the “poor boy’s college”, Clemens trained as a writer and critic. How Twain Set His Writing Style? “One isn’t a printer ten years without setting up acres of good and bad literature, and learning — unconsciously at first, consciously later — to discriminate between the two ... and meantime, he is unconsciously acquiring what is a “style”.
The literature he set into type varied in genre from anecdotes, to monologues, brief book excerpts, poems, and sketches by contemporary humorists. What these selections had in common was that they were all self-contained pieces — short and to the point. “Training is,” as Twain later wrote, “everything”; and so, it should come as no surprise that Twain himself survives in our hearts (and on the tip of our tongues) as easily excerpt able and eminently quotable. We can all picture Tom Sawyer persuading his friends to pay money for the privilege to whitewash his fence, buthow many of us remember the novel at length? That scene — rather than the plot — stays fresh in our minds because it encapsulates how much we admired and resented that conniving kid on our own block, or in the cubicle just outside our office door. Twain As A Hopper Before His First Book
Twain would write short pieces for nearly two decades before penning his first novel. But it was his skills as a printer, and not a writer, that bought him his first ticket out of Hannibal. Working as a tramp printer, he traveled to St. Louis and Iowa and then east to New York, Philadelphia, and Washington. D.C. During that time, he contributed travel letters to his brother’s newspaper, the Hannibal Gazette. A prolific writer, his career as a journalist was off to a fine start, writing feature stories, political reports, and sketches. Then, in 1957, Twain traveled to New Orleans and apprenticed to the pilot master George Ealer on the steamboat Pennsylvania. One and a half years later, he was a licensed steamboat pilot.
By 1861, the Civil War had all but cut off traffic on the Mississippi. Twain enlisted

in a Confederate company from Missouri. A few weeks later, he deserted and went off with his brother for the New Territory of Nevada. After failing as prospector, Twain served as city editor for the Virginia City Enterprise. One year later, in 1865, a real good liar and a jumping frog brought Twain into national prominence. New York’s The Saturday Press published his “Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County” and newspapers throughout the United States reprinted it. In 1867, that jumping frog was binded with other short sketches by Twain as his first book.
In the meantime, as early as 1866, Twain began lecturing. He told stories about himself and about his travels, which he continued to make as a correspondent. Twain visited the Sandwich Islands and, in 1867, set sail for the Holy Land. Later, he toured France and Italy gathering material for The Innocents Abroad. This book, published in 1869, truly established Twain’s reputation as a humorist. In it he satirized American tourists learning about Europe from guidebooks and, relying on his own voice of brash practicality, managed to extol the virtues of the New World as opposed to the Old.
