De formación principalmente autodidacta, ejerció de periodista y conferenciante y fundó el Daily News. Las aventuras de Oliver Twist o David Copperfield, publicadas por entregas, denuncian las crudas condiciones de vida de los más humildes.

          Acerca de Mark Twain

          Florida, (1835-1910). Mark Twain fue un aventurero incansable que encontró en su propia vida la inspiración para sus obras literarias. Considerado como el Dickens norteamericano, su estilo popular y lleno de humor de los comienzos, y su ironía y sarcasmo de sus últimas producciones literarias, contrapusieron el mundo idealizado de la infancia, inocente y a la vez pícaro, con una concepción desencantada del hombre adulto, el hombre de la era industrial, de la edad dorada, engañado por la moralidad y la civilización.

Wells y Bertrand Russell y una influencia decisiva en un abanico de autores que va de Jorge Luis Borges y C. S. Lewis a Marshall McLuhan y Neil Gaiman.

Tras su muerte, el 14 de junio de 1936, el papa Pío XI le otorgó el título de Defensor Fidei. Poeta, novelista, dramaturgo, periodista y crítico, dedicó ensayos a figuras como San Francisco, Santo Tomás, Dickens, Browning, Stevenson y Bernard Shaw #algunos de los cuales son considerados como los mejores trabajos en la materia#. También es el autor del célebre ensayo histórico sobre la humanidad y el cristianismo El hombre eterno. Su novela más conocida es El hombre que fue jueves, una alegoría sobre el mal y el libre albedrío. Y su personaje más famoso y emblemático es el Padre Brown, un sacerdote católico que protagoniza medio centenar de historias en las que resuelve los crímenes más extraños e inconcebibles a partir de su agudo conocimiento de la naturaleza humana.
