The purpose of this book is educational. I have read, studied, and taught Mark Twain’s "The Prince and the Pauper," and I wish to pass on what I have learned to other people who are interested in studying Twain’s "The Prince and the Pauper." In particular, I think that the readers of this short introduction to Twain’s "The Prince and the Pauper" will be bright high school seniors and college first-year students, as well as intelligent adults who simply wish to study The Prince and the Pauper despite not being literature majors.
