Pudd'nhead Wilson | Open Library

Pudd'nhead Wilson The setting of this novel is again the world that Sam Clemens grew up in, although now MT calls the village Dawson's Landing, and has moved it several hundred miles down the Mississippi River. It began as a farce about Siamese twins -- two different temperaments inseparably linked in one body -- and wound up becoming an irony about two babies -- one slave, one free -- switched in their cradles. It was never very popular with MT's contemporaries, but as his most direct, sustained treatment of slavery it has attracted considerable attention in our time; there is as yet, however, no agreement about what it's saying. In Roxy the novel offers MT's most complex woman character. My own reading of it begins with the title. It is curious that MT should call it a tragedy when its ending is classically comic: true identities and an apparent social order are restored.

He merely has some people in his mind, and an incident or two, also a locality. He knows these people, he knows the selected locality, and he trusts that he can plunge those people into those incidents with interesting results. So he goes to work.

    Mark Twain. Originally part of the Pudd'nhead Wilson book, Twain realised during the writing process that the twins were taking a backseat to characters such as Pudd'nhead Wilson, Roxy, and Tom Driscoll. As a result, he took them out and gave them their own short story.
