Published in 1881 by James R. Osgood, The Prince and the Pauper was Twain's third novel coming after Tom Sawyer and before Huckleberry Finn. The novel relies on a plot devise – that the heir to the throne and a pauper are such an exact physical match that they're able to swap places – to enable Twain to contrast life inside and outside the royal household. As such, Tom Canty, the pauper, enacts a brief life as the heir to the throne, witnessing and taking part in set piece activities including the death of the King (Henry VIII), while the real heir, Edward, sees for himself the poverty and despondency of life outside the palace walls.
