The authors and texts were both written in the early 1800’s, and are about each author’s childhood experience. Both strived to be objective.

People write their own endings through the choices they make. They decide whether or not they will be happy. Charlotte Bronte’s novel, Jane Eyre, is the perfect example of a life destined to misery.

One of Mark Twain writing styles is social commentary. This is when he makes fun of things that he thinks people take too seriously. This is shown in the novel Tom Sawyer, by Mark Twain.

In fact, Twain himself fought in the civil war on the confederate side and experienced his family members owning slaves. “Twain was born in Missouri, a slave state, and fought in the Civil War, however briefly, on the Confederate side. His father occasionally owned a slave and some members of his family owned many more.” (Getting Past Black and White, pg. 56).
