Abstract:

Mark Twain A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court Cracked on the head by a crowbar in nineteenth-century Connecticut, Hank Morgan wakes to find himself in King Arthur's England, facing a world whose idyllic surface masks fear, injustice, and ignorance.

Mencken to be "the most bitter critic of American platitude and delusionthat ever lived, "Twain enchants readers with a Camelot that strikes disturbingly contemporary notes. With an introduction by Leland Krauth And an afterword by Edmund Reiss.
