CLEMENS, Samuel Langhorne [1835-1910] -- American writer, lecturer
Immensely popular writer and lecturer, he is revered as one of the world's great literary geniuses.
A careful and conscious artist, as a humorist he was a master of
the techniques of exaggeration, irreverence and deadpan solemnity.
He was unsurpassed as a creator of characters,
preeminently in the immortal Huck Finn,
and as a keen observer of the social scene.
Sensitive to the sound of language, he introduced colloquial speech into American fiction.
