Mark Twain

A year later, in 1865, Mark Twain went as a correspondent for the Sacramento Union newspaper to the Sandwich Islands (now Hawaii). His essays about this journey, regularly published in the newspaper, were very popular. After returning from the islands, Mark Twain toured California lecturing on his journey, invariably drawing full audiences.

In 1867, Twain again sets off on a journey. Now he is going on a grand tour of Europe and the Middle East, during which he visits, among other things, Odessa, Yalta and Sevastopol. The result of the trip is the book “Simples Abroad”, which immediately made Mark Twain famous.

It was during this trip that Mark Twain met his future brother-in-law, Charles Langdon. Upon seeing a photograph of his sister, Olivia, Twain, in his own words, fell in love at first sight. Mark and Olivia met in 1868, announced their engagement a year later, and married in 1870.

Olivia was from a “wealthy but liberal family.” Among her friends, who also became friends of Mark Twain, were abolitionists, socialists, atheists, women’s rights activists. Samuel and Olivia Clemens were married for thirty-four years, until Olivia’s death in 1904.

The young family lived in Buffalo, New York, where Twain worked for the Buffalo Express newspaper , before moving to Hartford, Connecticut in 1871. In Hartford, Twain arranged for the construction of a house in which the Clemens lived until 1891. It was here that Samuel and Olivia’s daughters, Susan (1872 – 1896), Clara (1874 – 1962) and Jane (1880 – 1909) were born (another child, Langdon, born in 1870, died of diphtheria at the age of one and a half years).

In Hartford, Mark Twain wrote his most famous books: The Adventures of Tom Sawyer (1876), The Prince and the Pauper (1881), Life on the Mississippi (1883), The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn (1884), “A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court” (1889). Now in the house of Mark Twain in Hartford there is a museum of the great writer.

Mark Twain was always very interested in the achievements of science and technology. He was a close friend of the famous inventor Nikola Tesla and spent a lot of time in his laboratory. Twain also spoke with Thomas Edison. Mark Twain even received several patents, including “Improved Adjustable Removable Garment Belts” (a kind of suspenders).

Twain’s love for science is clearly seen in the book “A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court”, which tells about the triumph of progress and marked the beginning of the genre of alternative history.

In 1907, Mark Twain was awarded an honorary doctorate from the University of Oxford.

Twain was never a successful financier; with a fairly large income from writing, he invested money very unwisely. So, for example, the writer spent more than three hundred thousand dollars (about seven and a half million in today’s prices) to create a mechanical typesetting machine, which was never put into production, and his undertakings in publishing were also unsuccessful. In 1893, Samuel Clemens was declared bankrupt, but at the same time, Twain took his creditors very seriously and did not calm down until he paid back his debts.

The last years of Mark Twain’s life were overshadowed by a deep depression caused by the death of his closest relatives. In 1896, his daughter Susan died of meningitis, his wife Olivia died in 1904, and his daughter Jane died in 1909.

In 1909, Twain said: “I came into the world with Halley’s comet in 1835. It will come again next year, and I want to leave the world with it. If this does not happen, it will be the biggest disappointment of my life. We have come together, we must leave together.”

On April 21, 1910, the day after Halley’s comet made its closest approach to Earth, Mark Twain died of a heart attack.

Upon learning of Twain’s death, US President William Taft said: “Mark Twain gave pleasure – real intellectual pleasure – to millions. His writings will continue to give such pleasure to millions… His humor was American, but he was also appreciated by the British and representatives of other countries… It has become a part of American literature forever.”

Samuel Clemens is buried in Woodlawn Cemetery in Elmira, New York. On his grave there is a monument two sazhens high, a tribute to the famous pseudonym. But perhaps the best monument is his books, which remain with us forever.
