About Mark Twain
  • Samuel Langhorne Clemens (November 30, 1835 – April 21, 1910), known by his pen name Mark Twain, was an American writer, humorist, entrepreneur, publisher, and lecturer.
  • He was lauded as the "greatest humorist this country has produced", and William Faulkner called him "the father of American literature".
  • His novels include The Adventures of Tom Sawyer (1876) and its sequel, the Adventures of Huckleberry Finn (1884), the latter often called "The Great American Novel". Twain was raised in Hannibal, Missouri, which later provided the setting for Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn.
  • He served an apprenticeship with a printer and then worked as a typesetter, contributing articles to the newspaper of his older brother Orion Clemens.
  • He later became a riverboat pilot on the Mississippi River before heading west to join Orion in Nevada.
  • He referred humorously to his lack of success at mining, turning to journalism for the Virginia City Territorial Enterprise.
  • His humorous story, "The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County", was published in 1865, based on a story that he heard at Angels Hotel in Angels Camp, California, where he had spent some time as a miner.
  • The short story brought international attention and was even translated into French.
  • His wit and satire, in prose and in speech, earned praise from critics and peers, and he was a friend to presidents, artists, industrialists, and European royalty. Twain earned a great deal of money from his writings and lectures, but he invested in ventures that lost most of it—such as the Paige Compositor, a mechanical typesetter that failed because of its complexity and imprecision.
  • He filed for bankruptcy in the wake of these financial setbacks, but he eventually overcame his financial troubles with the help of Henry Huttleston Rogers.
  • He eventually paid all his creditors in full, even though his bankruptcy relieved him of having to do so.
  • Twain was born shortly after an appearance of Halley's Comet, and he predicted that he would "go out with it" as well; he died the day after the comet returned.

Brittany Higgins (middle and right) texted a friend that she was 'barely lucid' at the time Bruce Lehrmann (left) allegedly raped her inside Parliament House, a court has heard. The former Liberal staffer was seen looking emotional as she left the court on Tuesday after the first day of the trial, with what appeared to be mascara running down her face. Prosecutor Shane Drumgold SC told the jury the level of Ms Higgins' intoxication was important because it was relevant to her ability to consent. The accused man's lawyer told the court there are...

Who do the high priests of cancel culture most resemble? The witch hunters of Salem

Charges of 'racism', 'homophobia', 'transphobia' and even 'fascism' from activists (left) are commonplace and no evidence is required to secure a 'cancellation'. They scour social media for prey, such as the author J.K. Rowling (right). t's why school libraries have removed Harper Lee's To Kill A Mockingbird (1960) (inset left) and Margaret Atwood's The Handmaid's Tale (1985) (inset righ), following complaints about 'racist, homophobic or misogynistic language and themes'.

Former lecturer DOMINIC SANDBROOK gives his devastating verdict on higher education 

www.dailymail.co.uk, September 2, 2022
DOMINIC SANDBROOK: Now that the summer sunshine is fading, many families' minds are turning to new horizons. In the next few weeks, some 425,830 students will embark on the great adventure of life at university (picture: file image). For many of us, it remains a seminal rite of passage: the first extended spell away from home, the first lecture, the first seminar, the first hangover… If you listen to university chiefs, Britain's youngsters have never had it so good. With more than half of those in their late teens and 20s going into higher education,...
