A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's CourteBook - 2010
First published in 1889. When Hank Morgan is cracked on the head by a crowbar in 19th-century Connecticut, one of literature's most humorous, devilishly insightful, and resoundingly contemporary stories begins. Awakening to find himself in the England of King Arthur, Morgan discovers a world of fear, injustice, and ignorance hiding behind a Utopian mirage. The tough-minded Yankee, the embodiment of scientific knowledge, must overcome daunting obstacles, including Merlin the Magician, as he sets out to enlighten sixth-century England. This acrobatic tour de force moves from broad comedy to biting social satire, and from the pure joy of wild high jinks to deeply probing insights into the nature of man.
