Mark Twain used his literature to give an idea to the reader on how his personal life influenced his writings. There are some very obvious connections that can be made throughout his most famous works like The Adventures of Tom Sawyer and The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. He uses these fictional characters as a way to express his experiences and his way of thinking back in the 1830s. To begin with, Mark Twain was born as Samuel Langhorne Clemens and was the sixth child to Marshal and Jane Clemens. He was born two months early and for the first ten years of his life was really sick. His mother was cautious about him because he was the sickest of the remaining four children and was often pampered by her so he was always causing her trouble.
