Top 3 authors of all time in America.

1: Mark Twain.

Samuel Langhorne Clemens (November 30, 1835 – April 21, 1910), better known by his pen name Mark Twain, was an American author, humorist, entrepreneur, publisher, and lecturer. He was praised as “the greatest humorist the United States has produced”, and William Faulkner called him “the father of American literature”.

His novels include The Adventures of Tom Sawyer (1876) and its sequel, Adventures of Huckleberry Finn (1884), the latter of which is often referred to as the “Great American Novel”.

2: Ernest Hemingway.

Ernest Miller Hemingway (July 21, 1899 – July 2, 1961) was an American novelist, short-story writer, and journalist. His economical and understated style—including his iceberg theory—had a profound influence on 20th-century fiction, while his adventurous lifestyle and public image won him admiration from later generations. Hemingway did most of his work between the late 1920s and early 1950s, and was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1954. He published seven novels.

Hemingway returned home in early 1919 to readjust. Before the age of 20, he had gained a maturity from the war that combined with the need to stay home without a job and recuperate. As Reynolds explains, “Hemingway couldn’t really tell his parents what he thought when they saw his bloody knee.

3: Herman Melville.

Herman Melville (August 1, 1819 – September 28, 1891) was an American novelist, short story writer, and poet of the American Renaissance.

Herman Melville’s schooling began when he was five and was interrupted by the death of his father at the age of 12. When the Melvilles moved to a newly built house at 33 Bleecker Street in Manhattan in 1824, Herman and his older brother Gansevoort were sent to the New York Male High School.

His best-known works include Moby-Dick (1851); Tipi (1846), a romantic account of his experiences in Polynesia; and Billy Budd, the Sailor, a posthumously published novel. Although his reputation was not high at the time of his death, the 1919 centenary of his birth was the starting point of a Melville revival, and Moby-Dick flourished.
