The Prince and the Pauper
Table of Contents
About The Book
Two young men—one a child of the London slums, the other an heir to the throne—switch identities in this timeless novel about class and culture in sixteenth century England.
Prince Edward inadvertently switches places with Tom Canty, a pauper. While both boys are interested in experiencing life in the other's shoes, they are dismayed by the realities of their new lives.
Written before The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn was finished, this tale contains the elements of social criticism that were later to dominate Twain's writings.
