Pudd'nhead Wilson

by Mark Twain


Pudd'nhead Wilson (1894) is a novel by American writer Mark Twain. Its 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. Each grows into the other's social role. One of the major goals in this novel was to exploit the true nature of Racism at that period. 
The story was serialized in The Century Magazine (1893–1894), then published as a novel in 1894.
