Product Description:

The life of Samuel Langhorne Clemens, perhaps the most famous American author, and writer of such works as "Huckleberry Finn," "The Prince and the Pauper," and "A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court," is examined in detail.

Plot Synopsis:

"Famous Authors" examines the men and women behind the words that brought them literary kudos.
In "Mark Twain," viewers learn how the Missouri-born satirist created his eccentric characters and situations, which were loosely based on his rearing along the Mississippi River. Though his conventional schooling ended early, Twain honed his craft as a newspaper scribe.
He cut against the grain of contemporaries because he let his characters speak in the vernacular. Unafraid to slaughter sacred cows, he exposed the hypocrisy of do-as-I-say-not-as-I-do Christians in "Huckleberry Finn," and caricatured the insincerity of "civilized" French society in "The Innocents Abroad."
