Book summary

Mark Twain
A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthurs Court

Cracked on the head by a crowbar in nineteenth-century Connecticut, Hank Morgan wakes to find himself in King Arthurs England, facing a world whose idyllic surface masks fear, injustice, and ignorance. In this acclaimed tour de force, Mark Twain moves from broad comedy to biting social satire, from the pure joy of wild high jinks to deeply probing insights into the nature of man. Considered by H. L. Mencken to be “the most bitter critic of American platitude and delusion…that ever lived, Twain enchants readers with a Camelot that strikes disturbingly contemporary notes.
