Twain's story has been adapted and, er, borrowed from so often and so freely that you're probably familiar with it even if you've never read of it: a prince of sixteenth century England meets his double in the slums of London. The two swap clothes and lives. Complications ensue. Tom Canty, the urchin, learns how luxury and power can become the death of a man, while his doppleg nger roams his kingdom, learning first hand of the cruelty of the Tudor monarchy. . . .'Twain was . . . enough of a genius to build his morality into his books, with humor and wit and in the case of The Prince and the Pauper wonderful plotting.' E.L. Doctorow
