Read full description of the books:

Príncipe y medigo, publicada en 1881, es una novela que cuenta las peripecias de dos muchachos, Tom Canty y Eduardo, príncipe de Gales, que ven trocados sus papeles sociales (uno es mendigó, el otro príncipe) y se ven obligados a actuar en situaciones que les son desconocidas entre unas gentes que los consideran locos. Ambientada en la época de Enrique VIII de Inglaterra (primera mitad del siglo XVI), la obra tiene un marcado carácter de cuento, tanto por las situaciones y solución de la aventura, como por el carácter didáctico y moralista que el autor quiso darle. Aunque no sea una de las obras más conocidas de Mark Twain, se lee con agrado y las descripciones costumbristas de la ciudad de Londres, donde transcurre la acción, tienen gran vivacidad y constituyen un gran atractivo.

Read information about the author

Ebook Príncipe y mendigo read Online! Samuel Langhorne Clemens, better known by his pen name Mark Twain, was an American author and humorist. He is noted for his novels Adventures of Huckleberry Finn (1885), called "the Great American Novel", and The Adventures of Tom Sawyer (1876).

Twain grew up in Hannibal, Missouri, which would later provide the setting for Huckleberry Finn and Tom Sawyer. He apprenticed with a printer. He also worked as a typesetter and contributed articles to his older brother Orion's newspaper. After toiling as a printer in various cities, he became a master riverboat pilot on the Mississippi River, before heading west to join Orion. He was a failure at gold mining, so he next turned to journalism. While a reporter, he wrote a humorous story, "The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County," which proved to be very popular and brought him nationwide attention. His travelogues were also well-received. Twain had found his calling.

He achieved great success as a writer and public speaker. His wit and satire earned praise from critics and peers, and he was a friend to presidents, artists, industrialists, and European royalty.

However, he lacked financial acumen. Though he made a great deal of money from his writings and lectures, he squandered it on various ventures, in particular the Paige Compositor, and was forced to declare bankruptcy. With the help of Henry Huttleston Rogers, however, he eventually overcame his financial troubles. Twain worked hard to ensure that all of his creditors were paid in full, even though his bankruptcy had relieved him of the legal responsibility.

Born during a visit by Halley's Comet, he died on its return. He was lauded as the "greatest American humorist of his age", and William Faulkner called Twain "the father of American literature".
