The Tragedy of Pudd’nhead Wilson

Mark Twain

Switched at birth!

Pudd'nhead Wilson's central intrigue revolves around two boys one, born into slavery, with 1/32 black ancestry; the other, white, born to be the master of the house. The two boys, who look similar, are switched at infancy.

Three complex plot lines, with fascinating characters all come together in a murder trial with the classic reveal at the end that make this Twain classic the perfect crossover between literary and a newly developing genre.

Mark Twain's satire humorously and subtly takes apart small-town politics, religious beliefs to slavery and racism, while becoming an early detective story classic.
