Pudd'nhead Wilson: I am the moral center of this tale and I shall hold that title with much becoming humility. Suffice it to say that the book took several twists and turns that I did not see coming, but each of them definitely kept the story moving. Twain minces no words in describing the unfortunate effects of slavery upon the behavior of both Negroes and whites, even upon children. I am quite sure that most of us read The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn in an English Lit. class, somewhere along the line.

Марк Твен Those Extraordinary Twins . A man who is not born with the novel-writing gift has a troublesome time of it when he tries to build a novel. I know this from experience. Among them came a stranger named Pudd’nhead Wilson, and a woman named Roxana; and presently the doings of these two pushed up into prominence a young fellow named Tom Driscoll, whose proper place was away in the obscure background. Before the book was half finished those three were taking things almost entirely into their own hands and working the whole tale as a private venture of their own – a tale which they had nothing at all to do with, by rights.

Reviews about Pudd'nhead Wilson and Those Extraordinary Twins (7):
This review compares the free Kindle version of Twain’s Puddnhead Wilson with the version of the novel in a garden-variety paperback version of the novel -- I used the Bantam Classics 2005 version, with a cover featuring a painting of three men talking.

If you read the paperback side-by-side with the free version of the novel, you will notice about ten to twenty differences in each chapter with regard to punctuation, hyphenation, capitalization, and presentation. One suspects that the e-book was transcribed from an audio version of the novel, without rigorously proofreading the text afterwards. As such, the free e-book copy is somewhat disappointing, and is not recommended for readers who want to understand Twain’s style of writing.

You can follow the story from the Kindle version -- and this is a great one of two babies swapped at birth, written during a time when the Plessy versus Ferguson case dominated the headlines. My review of the story is found in my review of the Bantam Classics version of the novel. The Kindle novel is readable, but you will notice things like Judge is not capitalized, the extracts from Puddnhead Wilson’s calendar are not formatted properly, words like window-sills, moss-rose, and brad-awls don’t have hyphens, and the same words are not italicized in the e-book that were italicized in the Bantam classics book.

Normally, I’d report the errors to Project Gutenberg -- because that’s where these free Kindle books come from -- and tell you to download the novel there, but there are too many errors to report in this case.
Puddinhead Wilson is a tragedy, though filled with the humorous Twain wit found in all of his works. Centered on the oft-repeated archetype of Trading Places, Puddinhead Wilson satirically points out the absurdity of race-based social structures and class systems, especially those prevalent at the time. Swapped babies result in a high-born slave and a slave-born son of wealth. Whether by nature or nurture, the slave-born wealthy man lives as the worst sort of rascal and eventually finds his misdeeds catch up to him.

As is typical of Twain works, PUDDINHEAD WILSON is a biting social commentary, pointing out the inconsistencies and ridiculousness of the ways people behave towards one another. In reviewing this book, I cannot avoid mentioning the frequent use of the “N-word”, which Twain uses as a device for pushing home his points about the unfairness of unequal treatment. It is jarring and unpleasant to read for many modern readers, including myself, especially when used in a purposefully derogatory way, and often by the “black” characters themselves. I put “black” in parentheses because the central black characters are only 1/16 and 1/32 negro, which was apparently plenty for them to remain slaves under the law and thus be viewed by society and by themselves as “N-word”. I still recommend the book, just with a caution to expect the visceral offensiveness of racist language and behavior. It is amazing to think that such obvious evil and bigotry was the norm in parts of our country, and really not all that long ago.

If i could give this negative stars I would. I purchased two these (new) for my daughters' summer reading homework where they are to read and every fifteen pages cite, quote and write about that passage. In this assignment they are to quote with cited page numbers etc. Well guess what? THIS IS NOT A BOOK! This is like a cheap script written in huge text WITHOUT page numbers. This is not compiled like a book of any kind (even the mass-produced books have page numbers!). This "copy" is typed by someone and printed out and cheaply bond together. The quotation marks are all bold for whatever reason and the "copy" is not even divided into chapters! This is GARBAGE. This is NOT a book!

Attached is a copy of a "page"...ALL the pages look like this.
Who doesn't love Mark Twain? The Tragedy of Puddin'head Wilson is another reason the answer to this question is almost nobody. Of course the time and place of this story means that Twain uses language that some today would find offensive, because many people these days ignore the historical context of any story.. The narrative is laced with the N-word which is used by both blacks and whites as a matter of course. In the context of when and where Twain is writing about, readers shouldn't let it bother them. The tale is a fascinating depiction of how a person is socialized depending on the environment he or she was born into and grew up in. The two baby boys of the tale, one white and the other almost white (only a minute fraction of colored blood in his veins who is nonetheless "black") were switched by the (also) nearly white mother of one shortly after birth each grows up reflecting a slave environment for the white boy and a white environment for the near-white boy. The mother who serves in the white household is the only one who knows the truth. Unfortunately, things don't work out the way she planned and hoped. The ultimate hero, of course is Puddin'head Wilson. The story is funny, but it is also very telling of the white-black relationship of the time. b b
