Mark Twain’s A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court
In Hartford, Connecticut, circa 1889, machinist Hank Morgan takes a blow to the head and loses consciousness. When he wakes up, the year is 528 and he’s lying outside a little town called Camelot. Hank immediately realizes this can mean only one thing: he is the de facto smartest person in his new home and should be running the joint before long. Brimming with knowledge of firearms, medicine, and electricity, Hank soon finds himself the right-hand man of King Arthur and the object of court wizard Merlin’s vengeful ire. Skewering both the morals of his own century and painting medieval heroes in a unflatteringly realistic light, Mark Twain’s thigh-slapping satire points out how humanity’s foibles and failings transcend time and place.
