Description
A novel about a poor, boy who exchanges identities with Edward Tudor, the prince of England, The Prince and the Pauper (1882) is at once an adventure story, a fantasy of timeless appeal, and an intriguing example of the author's abiding preoccupation with separating the true from the false, the genuine from the impostor. With characteristic humor and color, Twain brings to life the sixteenth-century royal court, the crowded, boisterous streets inhabited by London's hoi polloi, and the behavior of two young boys who are in many ways smarter than their elders. Included is the story "A Boy's Adventure", written as part of the novel but published separately.
