What happens in The Prince and the Pauper? Tom Canty accidentally switches places with Prince Edward, with whom he bears a striking resemblance. After Edward is mistakenly thrown out onto the streets, he struggles to get back to the palace before Tom can be coronated. Mistaken for a beggar, Edward must struggle to survive on the streets. Meanwhile, Tom, who has no knowledge of how to be a prince, fears being mistaken for an imposter. On the day Tom is to be crowned King, Edward returns. He proves his identity by leading the Lord Protector to the great seal, the exact location of which only Edward could have known.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
