Abstract

A cornerstone of American literature, Mark Twain utilized his abilities as a writer to strike at the racial injustice that faced America during his time. In France, there is a rising star stirring the established "traditional" French society. Using the colloquial language of their settings, coming-of-age tales and first-person narratives to demonstrate their respective social ills that affect their epochs, Faïza Guène and Mark Twain share a staggering literary similarity both in style and inspiration.
