Publisher's Description

When Hank Morgan awakens after a knockout blow to the head, he is shocked to find himself transported from his native Connecticut into the medieval world of King Arthur’s Court. What follows is a comedic adventure where Hank, utilizing his knowledge of nineteenth century technology, attempts to improve the lives of the people of Camelot, thus altering the course of history.

Written to satirize nineteenth-century ideals of the Middle Ages, Mark Twain’s A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court is now regarded as one of the first American time-travel narratives. As with many of Twain’s works, A Connecticut Yankee has been adapted numerous times for both stage and screen, and has been used as a reference in everything from subsequent works of science fiction to an episode of Bugs Bunny.

Author Bio

Mark Twain, who was born Samuel L. Clemens in Missouri in 1835, wrote some of the most enduring works of literature in the English language, including The Adventures of Tom Sawyer and The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. Personal Recollections of Joan of Arc was his last completed book—and, by his own estimate, his best. Its acquisition by Harper & Brothers allowed Twain to stave off bankruptcy. He died in 1910.
