The Tragedy of Puddn'head Wilson and the Comedy Those Extraordinary Twinsby Mark Twain
The Tragedy of Pudd'nhead Wilson is Twain's most searingly ironic vision of race in America. Set in a town not unlike Hannibal of Twain's youth, the book began life as a slapstick comedy about Siamese twins. But 'it changed from a farce to a tragedy, ' Twain tells us, in the course of his writing, and the result was one of the most profound medications on race and identity an American writer has produced.
