One day, when Tom canty, a London pauper, and Edward Tudor, the prince of Wales, come across each other, they discover that they don’t just look alike but are also the same age. As each is fascinated by the other life, The prince and the pauper decide to exchange roles. “A few minutes later the little prince of Wales was garlanded with Tom’s fluttering odds and ends, and the little prince of pauperdom was tricked out in the gaudy plumage of royalty. The two went and stood side by side before a great mirror, and Lo, a miracle: there did not seem to have been any change made!” what happens when the king dies and the prince has to take over the throne? A classic satire on the social conventions and injustices, the prince and the pauper is a timeless comedy of mistaken identities. It has been adapted for stage, Comics, films, and television time and again.

About the Author

Lauded as the ‘greatest American humorist of his age’ and called ‘the father of American literature’ by William Faulkner, Samuel Langhorne Clemens, better known by his pen name Mark Twain, was born in Florida, Missouri, in 1835. In 1839, his family shifted to Hannibal, a developing port city along the banks of River Mississippi, which later provided the setting for The Adventures of Tom Sawyer (1876) and, its sequel, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn (1884), two of his most remarkable books. His first story, The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County, was published in 1865 in New York’s The Saturday Press. With this came his first success as a writer. The Innocents Abroad (1869) was his first novel. Twain’s other well-known works include Roughing It (1872), A Tramp Abroad (1880), The Prince and the Pauper (1881), A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court (1889), and Pudd’nhead Wilson (1891). Twain was awarded an honorary doctorate in letters by the Oxford University in 1907. He died on April 21, 1910 in Redding, Connecticut, after suffering a heart attack.
