The Prince, the Pauper and Pudd’nhead Wilson

Two of Mark Twain‘s stories that are equally entertaining and thought provoking are “Pudd’nhead Wilson” and “The Prince and the Pauper.”  While the circumstances are very different, each story involves dreams of how the other half lives… and in the case of the Prince the Pauper an opportunity arises in which two switch places and instead of merely dreaming, they experience the trials and travails of what they always supposed was an idyllic existence.

Where the Prince and the Pauper hinges on the experiences of the boys, and the world is seen more from their perspective, it is in Pudd’nhead Wilson that we get a stronger view of a parent’s dreams for their child, and the lengths to which they will go to try and help their child attain every advantage in life.
