The score to Ken Burns's Mark Twain will feel instantly familiar to fans of the popular documentary filmmaker's earlier work. As with Burns's The Civil War and Baseball, pianist Jacqueline Schwab and t Bobby Horton have been enlisted to tailor tunes to suit Burns's needs. Schwab provides gracious takes on traditional songs such as "Wagoner's Lad" and "Sweet Betsy from Page," contributing to the drawing-room ambiance of the score.

Twain’s explicit sense of place is articulated in the rugged aesthetic of the American Midwest. The untouched labyrinth of underground caves, the secrets hidden in the planks of abandoned houses, and the natural landscape of the American Midwest in the aftermath of a bloody Civil War, explicitly defines Twain’s work as stories of place. His texts also have an undeniable sense of place rooted in the speech of his characters. Twain’s works aren’t just written texts, but tangible artifacts of both American literary and cultural history. Twain’s critical eye, and ear, of social observation and political injustices of an often bigoted America, along with a clever tongue, much like that of his young heroes, has solidified his role as what no less a luminary than William Faulkner called ‘the father of American literature’.

MARK TWAIN'S AMERICA fe Mark Twain is an American icon. We now know him as the author of classics, but in his day he was a controversial satirist and public figure who traveled the world and healed post-Civil War America with his tall tales, witty anecdotes, and humorous but insightful novels and stories. Twain's legacy continues to flourish over 100 years after his death

Samuel Langhorne Clemens (November 30, 1835 – April 21, 1910), well known by his pen name Mark Twain, was an American author and humorist. Twain is noted for his novels Adventures of Huckleberry Finn (1884), which has been called "the Great American Novel," and The Adventures of Tom Sawyer (1876). He also wrote poetry, short stories, essays, and non-fiction. The Gilded Age: A Tale of Today (1873). The Prince and the Pauper (1881). A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court (1889).

Mark Twain is very realistic in using the words that have a direct relation to human life. The way in which the writer reveals his humor is the technique of using the cross-eyed patterns of concepts. To some extend the use of the concepts reveal Mark Twain’s personal disappointment with the system. However, the main achievement of Mark Twain’s style is its capacity to convey the objective reality. The objective reality that is so skillfully used in all works of Mark Twain often brings the reader face-to-face with objective reality. Jeffrey Duncan, the author of the article The empirical and the ideal in Mark Twain presents the famous writer as a kind of impressionist. Instead of conveying an original experience, Mark Twain decides to connect his original experience with his humor (Duncan 207).

Fresh and funny today as he was more than a century ago, Mark Twain wittily distrusted everything bogus, inflated, predictable or empty.
