        Mark Twain | Storyteller, Novelist, and Humorist Video

        Mark Twain, often considered the “father of American literature,” was the first American writer to tell his stories in an emerging American vernacular--the speech of common folk. Based on his many adventures, Twain’s books reflect his witty observations about everyday life in nineteenth-century America. By examining two primary source activities and a short video, students will learn how this literary icon used humor and a uniquely American voice to chronicle post-Civil War life in the United States.
