Barnes & Noble Classics pulls together a constellation of influences<U+0151>biographical, historical, and literary<U+0151>to enrich each reader's understanding of these enduring works. <P style=MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt>When Mark Twain's The Prince and the Pauper was published in 1881, the Atlanta Constitution sang its praises in no uncertain terms: <U+0147>The book comes upon the reading public in the shape of a revelation. A timeless tale of switched identities, Twain's story revolves around the miserably poor Tom Canty <U+0147>of Offal Court, who is lucky enough to trade his rags for the gilded robes of England's prince, Edward Tudor. As each boy is mistaken for the other, Tom enters a realm of privilege and pleasure beyond his most delirious dreams, while Edward plunges into a cruel, dangerous world of beggars and thieves, cutthroats and killers. Befriended by the heroic Miles Hendon, Edward struggles to survive on the squalid streets of London, in the process learning about the underside of life in <U+0147>Merry England. With its mixing of high adventure, raucous comedy, and scathing social criticism, presented in a hilarious faux-sixteenth-century vernacular that only Mark Twain could fashion, The Prince and the Pauper remains one of this incomparable humorist's most popular and oft-dramatized tales. Robert Tine is the author of six novels, including State of Grace and Black Market. He has written for a variety of periodicals and magazines, from the New York Times to Newsweek
