Description

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. 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 even as the grim truths of his Camelot strike disturbingly contemporary notes.
