A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court
David Allen's review
Apr 04, 2011
Among Twain's most famous novels, "Yankee" is loosely plotted, frequently implausible and internally inconsistent. But who cares? This is both very funny (the discomfort of wearing armor, the introduction of baseball and bicycles to the Court) and very dark (slavery, feudalism and the caste system are targeted, often through historical anecdotes), making this a transition novel for Twain as his world view soured. Brilliant.
