The Prince and the Pauper Book Review Summary

Detailed Plot Synopsis of The Prince and the Pauper

In the Prince and the Pauper Twain took his very sharp pen and skewered the very idea of nobility by premising the relationship of a Prince with his courtiers on their opinion of who he was, rather than the reality of who he was. While the story is another one that is good for children simply as an exciting adventure story, his main focus, and the "teaching" of the book is on society and the false trappings of royalty or upper-class attitudes.
