Twain created some of the most memorable characters in fiction in his novels. His literary fame was primarily because of the books “The Adventures of Tom Sawyer” and later “The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn”. In the novel, “The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn” Twain describe an imaginative hero, that was an unusual boy with a distinctive sense of human principles. The tale of a young boy Huck and a runaway slave by the name of Jim, traveled down the Mississippi River on a raft as buddies. Twain accomplished a genuine portrait of American life in the 19th century. Through Twain’s use of commonly verbal language in speech he transformed the language of American literature and used a great influence on many successive American writers (Twain, 1). Ernest Hemingway wrote in 1935 that “all modern American literature comes from one book, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain”.
