Tom Canty is a London street urchin who dreams of becoming a king while Edward Tudor, Prince of Wales, dreams of escaping his royal confinement. By a sudden twist of fate, they find themselves in each other's circumstances. Thus a bedraggled "Prince of Poverty" is raised to royalty, while a pampered Prince of Wales finds himself tossed into a world of filthy beggars and villainous thieves. The Prince and the Pauper originally published in 1881, is one of Mark Twain's earliest social satires. With his tongue-in-cheek irony, Twain satirizes the power of the monarchy, unjust laws and barbaric punishments, religious intolerance and superstitions. Although originally written as a story for children, The Prince and Pauper is a classic novel for adults as well, offering critical insight into a people and time period not really all that different from our own.
