萨慕尔.克莱门斯 (Samuel L. Clemens) ,也就是马克.吐温 (Mark Twain) 的诞生

在「哈克历险记」 (The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn) 里,一个叫做哈克.芬恩 (Huck Finn) 的逃家青少年和一个叫做吉姆的逃跑奴隶坐在木筏上沿着密西西比河往下游走。因为这两个人物,马克.吐温从此奠定了美国最好的小说家之一的声誉。 

萨慕尔.蓝鸿恩.克莱门斯以马克.吐温的笔名享誉全世界。他于18351130日出生在密苏里的佛罗里达。吐温最有名的小说是以他在密西西比河沿岸度过的少年时期为背景。「汤姆历险记」 (The Adventures of Tom Sawyer) 1876年出版,而「哈克历险记」则在1884年出版上市。这些书一直到今天都还被认为是经典之作。这些书不但是很好的故事书,里头还包括了受到白人肯定的具备坚忍特质的非裔美国人角色。

In The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, a runaway teenager named Huck Finn went floating down the Mississippi River on a raft with an escaped slave named Jim, and with them, Mark Twain's reputation as one of the finest American novelists was confirmed.

Samuel Langhorne Clemens, known to the world by his pen name of Mark Twain, was born on November 30, 1835, in Florida, Missouri. Twain is best known for his novels set in his boyhood world on the Mississippi River. The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, published in 1876, and The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, published in 1884, are considered classics today. These books not only told a good story; they also included African Americans who were admired by whites for their strength of character.
