A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court
by Mark Twain and M. Thomas Inge and Daniel Carter Beard




Overview -
When A Connecticut Yankee at King Arthur's Court was published in 1889, Mark Twain was undergoing a series of personal and professional crises. In his Introduction, M. Thomas Inge shows how what began as a literary burlesque of British chivalry and culture developed to tragedy and into a novel that remains a major literary and cultural text for generations of new readers. This edition reproduces a number of the original drawings by Dan Beard, of whom Twain said He not only illustrates the text but he illustrates my thoughts.
