A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court by Mark Twain. 0.00
The story begins when the "yankee," a skilled mechanic in a 19th century New England arms factory, is struck on the head during a quarrel, and awakens to find himself being taken as a prisoner to the Camelot of 528 A. D. With his 19th century know-how, the "yankee" sets out to modernize the Kingdom, opposed by the court magician. The story turns humorous but Twain's humor is also serious social satire.
