Aptly referred to as the 'Father of American Literature,' Mark Twain's legacy is renowned all over the world. The writer is most noted for his witty and satirical style of writing, which is evident in books such as The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, Pudd'nhead Wilson and The Prince and the Pauper. In his later years, however, Mark Twain's writing stood in stark contrast to his previous work and were filled with more serious, relevant social themes. His writing got him nationwide fame when he first wrote a newspaper article named The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County. Then on, he became a celebrated personality and befriended several dignitaries.
