No study of American literature or even of world literature would be complete without the inclusion of Samuel Clemens or better known as Mark Twain. He shaped American literature and thought, wrote at least half a dozen of its major books, and many stories that are woven into the tapestry of America. As his friend William Dean Howell said, Twain was "sole, incomparable", unlike all the other literary men Howell had known. Mark Twain had become a legend.However, his real name, Samuel Clemens, is not as popular as his pseudonym. His pen name brings him into the mainstream of American literature.This writing is about to tell how he wrote his life experiences into his outstanding novels The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn and The Adventures of Tom Sawyer. Many critics said that Mark Twain was a master of biographical novels.
