The Prince and the Pauper is an English language novel by American author Mark Twain. The book represents Twain's first attempt at historical fiction. Set in 1547, the novel tells the story of two young boys who are identical in appearance: Tom Canty, a pauper who lives with his abusive father in Offal Court, London, and Edward VI of England, son of Henry VIII of England. Much of the humor in the book originates in the two boys' inability to function in the world that is so familiar to the other when they switch places, although Tom soon displays considerable wisdom in his decisions. In many ways, the book is a social satire, particularly compelling in its condemnation of the inequality that existed between the classes in Tudor England. The book foreshadowed the author's successful forays into historical fiction with A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court.
