Read full description of the books El forastero misterioso:Esta vez el forastero, por misterioso que pareciera, no se presentó con cuernos, ni con rabo, ni con patas de cabra. Al contrario, «vestía ropa nueva y buena, era guapo, tenía un rostro atractivo y una voz agradable». Pero hizo y dijo cosas que quedarán para siempre grabadas en la memoria desasosegada de los hombres. Mark T wain, con una leve entonación de cuento de hadas, casi fuera del tiempo y del espacio, escribió una alegoría sobre la condición humana y la absoluta relatividad de todas las cosas, tan inquietante en su aparente sencillez, que al cerrar el libro el lector acaba preguntándose abrumado si la existencia humana es sólo un sueño o una pesadilla.
Read information about the authorSamuel Langhorne Clemens, better known by his pen name Mark Twain, was an American author and humorist. He is noted for his novels Adventures of Huckleberry Finn (1885), called "the Great American Novel", and The Adventures of Tom Sawyer (1876).
Twain grew up in Hannibal, Missouri, which would later provide the setting for Huckleberry Finn and Tom Sawyer. He apprenticed with a printer. He also worked as a typesetter and contributed articles to his older brother Orion's newspaper. After toiling as a printer in various cities, he became a master riverboat pilot on the Mississippi River, before heading west to join Orion. He was a failure at gold mining, so he next turned to journalism. While a reporter, he wrote a humorous story, "The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County," which proved to be very popular and brought him nationwide attention. His travelogues were also well-received. Twain had found his calling.
He achieved great success as a writer and public speaker. His wit and satire earned praise from critics and peers, and he was a friend to presidents, artists, industrialists, and European royalty.
However, he lacked financial acumen. Though he made a great deal of money from his writings and lectures, he squandered it on various ventures, in particular the Paige Compositor, and was forced to declare bankruptcy. With the help of Henry Huttleston Rogers, however, he eventually overcame his financial troubles. Twain worked hard to ensure that all of his creditors were paid in full, even though his bankruptcy had relieved him of the legal responsibility.
Born during a visit by Halley's Comet, he died on its return. He was lauded as the "greatest American humorist of his age", and William Faulkner called Twain "the father of American literature".
