The Adventures of Tom Sawyer

231 ratings

Summary

"Being paid to perform such a gratifying activity as reading Mark Twain aloud felt powerfully akin to Tom Sawyer hoodwinking other boys into paying him for the privilege of whitewashing a fence. Let's keep that between us." (Narrator Nick Offerman) With The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, not even Twain could have known that when he introduced readers to the inhabitants of the fictional town of St. Petersburg, Missouri, he would also be introducing two characters - one a clever and mischievous scamp, and the other a carefree, innocent ragamuffin - whose stories would ultimately shape the course of American literature. But whereas its sequel and companion piece, Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, would harken an end to childhood, the story of Tom Sawyer is one that depicts the excitement and adventure of boyhood along the Mississippi. Revisit this enduring classic and you will be struck not only by Twain's skill at capturing a time and place so vividly but also by his uncanny ability to crystallize those oftentimes tumultuous and conflicting emotions that a child experiences at the precipice of adulthood: a longing to be free from the rules and obligations of adults while enjoying the laxity inherent in childhood; a love of all things macabre, like blood oaths, cemetery cures, and haunted houses, that reveal a true innocence - an unawareness of real-life consequences and one's own mortality; and the pangs of guilt when knowing the right thing to do and doing the right thing appear to be at odds. A natural storyteller and raconteur in his own right - just listen to Paddle Your Own Canoe and Gumption - actor, comedian, carpenter, and all-around manly man Nick Offerman (Parks and Recreation) brings his distinctive baritone and a fine-tuned comic versatility to Twain's writing. In a knockout performance, he doesn't so much as read Twain's words as he does rejoice in them, delighting in the hijinks of Tom - whom he lovingly refers to as a "great scam artist" and "true American hero" - while deftly delivering the tenderness and care Twain gave to his own characters.

Summary

Praise for Nick Offerman narrating Mark Twain: “Offerman’s Illinois-raised voice and actor’s talent suit him ideally to channel Mark Twain.” (The New York Times Book Review) “There’s something about his wry Midwestern merriment that aspires to Twainishness.” (Men’s Journal) “It’s a melding of sardonic voices: Mark Twain, meet Nick Offerman.” (The Wall Street Journal) With his trademark mirth and boundless charisma, actor Nick Offerman brought the loveable shenanigans of Twain's adolescent hero to life in The Adventures of Tom Sawyer. Now, in yet another virtuosic performance, the actor proves that despite being separated by a span of over a century, his connection to the author and his work is undeniable and that theirs is a timeless collaboration that should not be missed. Trading in the idyllic banks of Twain's Mississippi for medieval England, Offerman regales listeners with one of American literature's foremost satires and the author's most inventive and darkly funny pieces of fiction. Hank Morgan is the archetype of modern man in 19th-century New England: adept at his trade as a mechanic, innovative, forward thinking. So when a blow to the head inexplicably sends him back in time 1300 years and places him in Camelot, instead of despair, he feels emboldened by the prospect placed before him and sets out to modernize and improve the lives of his fellow citizens. But, in order to do so, he'll need to contend with brash nobles, superstitious nincompoops, and a conniving, blowhard wizard. While time travel has become a common trope in storytelling today, in Twain's time it was truly a novel idea; all the more imaginative when you consider how it's used for satirical effect. A thinly veiled critique of the political and social institutions that impede progress and a scathing condemnation of the naiveté that allows them to thrive, A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court saw Twain's biting wit and sharp tongue honed to a fine point. Told primarily through Hank's first-person perspective, Offerman effortlessly captures the Yankee's straightforward, matter-of-fact gruffness. Like Offerman - whose woodworking skills are the stuff of legend - Hank is a natural builder of things and his can-do, by-the-bootstraps spirit finds its vocal foil in Offerman's crisp delivery. But it's in Offerman's ability to convey the myriad characters and absurdities Hank faces that makes this an incomparable listening experience: the flowery embellishments and insane braggadocio of knights; the lilting, feathery sing-song of Clarence; the garrulous, long-winded pomp of the aristocracy; the old, dithering windbag pronouncements of Merlin. Offerman plays each of these with a humor and humanity that Twain himself would have enjoyed.

Summary

Very few people know that Mark Twain wrote a major work on Joan of Arc. Still fewer know that he considered it not only his most important, but also his best work. He spent 12 years in research and many months in France doing archival work, and then made several attempts until he felt he finally had the story he wanted to tell. He reached his conclusion about Joan's unique place in history only after studying in detail accounts written by both sides: the French, for whom she raised an army to return the Dauphin to the throne; and the English, who fought the French in the Hundred Year's War and were ultimately Joan's executioners. This is a fascinating and remarkably accurate biography of the life and mission of Joan of Arc told by one of this country's greatest storytellers.

First published in 1884, Mark Twain's Adventures of Huckleberry Finn is among the first novels in American literature to be written throughout in vernacular English.

It depicts the development of Huckleberry (Huck) Finn, a boy about thirteen years old. Huck has to find a way between his belief in the right thing to do and what most do believe to be wrong.

Summary

In June 1867, Mark Twain set out for Europe and the Holy Land on the paddle steamer Quaker City. His enduring, no-nonsense guide for the first-time traveler also served as an antidote to the insufferably romantic travel books of the period. “Who could read the programme for the excursion without longing to make one of the party?” So Mark Twain acclaims his voyage from New York City to Europe and the Holy Land. His adventures produced The Innocents Abroad, a book so funny and provocative it made him an international star for the rest of his life. He was making his first responses to the Old World—to Paris, Milan, Florence, Venice, Pompeii, Constantinople, Sebastopol, Balaklava, Damascus, Jerusalem, Nazareth, and Bethlehem. For the first time he was seeing the great paintings and sculptures of the Old Masters. He responded with wonder and amazement but also with exasperation, irritation, and disbelief. Above all he displayed the great energy of his humor, more explosive for us now than for his beguiled contemporaries.

Summary

This humorous and nostalgic novel takes the listener back to the carefree days of boyhood in Hannibal, Missouri, where Mark Twain grew up. Just what did boys do in a small Midwestern town during the mid-1800s, a time when there were no televisions, no arcades, and no videos? They whitewashed fences, floated down rivers, traded marbles, formed secret societies, smoked pipes, and, on occasion, managed to attend their own funerals. Yes, they may have been a bit mischievous, but as Aunt Polly said of Tom when she believed him to be dead, "He was the best-hearted boy that ever was." Aunt Polly's sentiments reveal one of the cardinal tenets of Twain's philosophy: In this deceitful and infirm world, innocence can be found only in the heart of a boy.

One day a stranger appears in the village and befriends Theodor and his chums. He tells them that his name is Satan and he is the nephew of "the Satan". He is capable of all types of magic, predictions and apparitions that he reveals in various ways to the boys. But throughout the story Satan expels his wisdom on the character and futility of mankind. While this work contains the wit and humor typical of Mark Twain, the story line is considered a serious social commentary on Twain's criticism of organized religion.

In one of his last recordings, Walter Cronkite provides an illuminating commentary on how the author came to reinterpret the Genesis story. This expanded edition, unlike any other version, incorporates previously unpublished passages as well as Mark Twain’s mislaid final revision of “Adam’s Diary.”

Summary

The Adventures of Tom Sawyer by Mark Twain is an 1876 novel about a young boy growing up along the Mississippi River. The story is set in the fictional town of St. Petersburg, inspired by Hannibal, Missouri, where Twain lived.Tom Sawyer lives with his Aunt Polly and his half-brother Sid. Tom dirties his clothes in a fight and is made to whitewash the fence the next day as punishment. He cleverly persuades his friends to trade him small treasures for the privilege of doing his work. He then trades the treasures for Sunday School tickets which one normally receives for memorizing verses, redeeming them for a Bible, much to the surprise and bewilderment of the superintendent who thought "it was simply preposterous that this boy had warehoused two thousand sheaves of Scriptural wisdom on his premises - a dozen would strain his capacity, without a doubt." Tom falls in love with Becky Thatcher, a new girl in town, and persuades her to get "engaged" by kissing him. But their romance collapses when she learns Tom has been "engaged" previously to Amy Lawrence. Shortly after Becky shuns him, he accompanies Huckleberry Finn to the graveyard at night, where they witness the murder of Dr. Robinson.

Summary

The idealized childhood of this fictional hero, based on Mark Twain's own early life along the banks of the Mississippi, is filled with robust good humor and high-spirited adventures. Yet there is also an in-depth experience of the central South of the 1840s - its dialects, superstitions, and social values. While romping through fun-filled fantasy, Tom Sawyer shows how morally complicated real life can be. In his unabridged reading of the American classic, actor Patrick Fraley crafts 36 authentic "voices" to represent the wide range of Twain's delightful characters.

Who Is Mark Twain?

Summary

"You had better shove this in the stove," Mark Twain said at the top of an 1865 letter to his brother, "for I don't want any absurd 'literary remains' and 'unpublished letters of Mark Twain' published after I am planted." He was joking, of course. But when Mark Twain died in 1910, he left behind the largest collection of personal papers created by any nineteenth-century American author. Here, for the first time in book form, are 24 remarkable pieces by the American master - pieces that have been handpicked by Robert Hirst, general editor of the Mark Twain Project at the University of California, Berkeley. In "Jane Austen," Twain wonders if Austen's goal is to "make the reader detest her people up to the middle of the book and like them in the rest of the chapters." "The Privilege of the Grave" offers a powerful statement about the freedom of speech while "Happy Memories of the Dental Chair" will make you appreciate modern dentistry. In "Frank Fuller and My First New York Lecture" Twain plasters the city with ads to promote his talk at the Cooper Union (he is terrified no one will attend). Later that day, Twain encounters two men gazing at one of his ads. One man says to the other: "Who is Mark Twain?" The other responds: "God knows - I don't." Wickedly funny and disarmingly relevant, Who Is Mark Twain? shines a new light on one of America's most beloved literary icons - a man who was well ahead of his time.

Tom Sawyer ist eine Lausbubengeschichte und spielt in der Mitte des 19. Jahrhunderts in dem fiktiven Ort St. Petersburg in Missouri am Ufer des Mississippi. Der Waisenjunge Tom lebt bei seiner Tante Polly, zusammen mit seinem Halbbruder Sid, seiner Cousine Mary und dem schwarzen Sklaven Jim. Sid ist brav und verpetzt Tom bei jeder Gelegenheit.

Der Mörder Indiana-Joe schiebt dem anderen Mann, der betrunken war, den Mord unter. Doch Tom sagt vor Gericht aus, so dass der richtige Mörder gefunden wird. Indiana-Joe kann jedoch entfliehen. Von nun an trifft Tom mehrmals auf den Geflohenen bis dieser in einer Höhle eingeschlossen wird und stirbt.

The Purloining of Prince Oleomargarine

Summary

A never-before-published, previously unfinished Mark Twain children's story is brought to life by Caldecott Medal winners Philip Stead and Erin Stead. In a hotel in Paris one evening in 1879, Mark Twain sat with his young daughters, who begged their father for a story. Choosing a picture from a magazine to get started, Twain began telling them the tale of Johnny, a poor boy in possession of some magical seeds, who finds himself on a quest to rescue a stolen prince. Later, Twain would jot down some rough notes about the story, but the tale was left unfinished...until now. Plucked from the Mark Twain archives at the University of California, Berkeley, Twain's notes now form the foundation of a fairy tale picked up over a century later. With only Twain's fragmentary script and a story that stops partway as his guide, author Philip Stead has written a tale that imagines what might have been if Twain had fully realized this work. This is a story that reaches through time and brings us the debut children's book of America's most legendary writer, envisioned by one of today's most important names in children's literature.

One day a citizen of Hadleyburg offends a stranger passing through, who vows to take his revenge by revealing just how corruptible the sanctimonious town really is. Twain is at his best here, poking fun at common hypocrisy as the self-satisfied pillars of the community are done in by their own greed. Other stories in the collection include: "The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County", "The One Million Pound Bank Note", "Edward Mills and George Benton: A Tale", "The Stolen White Elephant",l "Cannibalism in the Cars", "The Man Who Put Up at Gadsby's", "The Story of the Good Little Boy", "The Story of the Bad Little Boy", "Baker's Blue Jay Yarn: What Stumped the Blue Jays", and "A Double Barreled Detective Story".

The Greatest Christian Stories Ever Written

Summary

This a handpicked collection of some of the greatest Christian stories ever written. Many were written by the most celebrated authors of all time - such as Leo Tolstoy, Mary Twain, and Johanna Spyri. When we speak of these works as Christian stories, we mean that each story has a powerful Christian message based on Jesus' teachings. Three of the stories are from Jesus himself. Others were written by devout believers like Henry Van Dyke and Johanna Spyri. Yet, one of the authors, Mark Twain, was not a Christian himself. Leo Tolstoy radically embraced the teachings of Jesus, but he struggled most of his life with orthodox Christian doctrines. Yet, the stories included herein from both Twain and Tolstoy reveal profound insights into the teachings of Christ. Among the unabridged works contained in this compilation are: "The Other Wise Man" by Henry Van Dyke "Moni, the Goat Boy" by Johanna Spyri "How Much Land Does a Man Need?" by Leo Tolstoy "The Silver Mine" by Selma Lagerlof "The War Prayer" by Mark Twain "Where Love Is, God Is" by Leo Tolstoy "The Little Hero of Holland" by Mary Mapes Dodge "Androcles and the Lion" (Traditional) "A Spark Neglected Burns the House" by Leo Tolstoy

The Diaries of Adam and Eve and Other Stories

Summary

"Eve's Diary" is a short story by Mark Twain. It is written in the style of a diary kept by the first woman in the Biblical creation story, Eve, and is claimed to be "translated from the original MS". The "plot" of this story is the first-person account of Eve from her creation up to her burial by her mate Adam, including meeting and getting to know him, and exploring the world around her, Eden. The story then jumps 40 years into the future after the Fall and expulsion from Eden. It is one of a series of books Twain wrote concerning the story of Adam and Eve, including "Extracts from Adam's Diary", "That Day in Eden", "Eve Speaks", "Adam's Soliloquy", and the "Autobiography of Eve". "Eve's Diary" has a lighter tone than the others in the series, as Eve has a strong appreciation for beauty and love.

Well known as a "children's book," The Adventures of Tom Sawyer is rich in eloquent and sophisticated language, and filled with realistic characters who become locked in life and death struggles.There is a murder, stolen treasure, and death by starvation. Add a love story, a buddy story, and a family drama, presented "with a fidelity to circumstance which loses no charm by being realistic in the highest degree, and which gives incomparably the best picture of life in that region as yet known to fiction," as William Dean Howells wrote of Tom Sawyer, in Harper's Magazine in 1876.

The Adventures of Tom Sawyer

Summary

Perhaps the best-loved 19th-century American novel, Mark Twain's tale of boyhood adventure overflows with comedy, warmth, and slapstick energy. It brings to life an array of irresistible characters - the awesomely self-confident Tom, his best buddy Huck Finn, indulgent Aunt Polly, and the lovely, beguiling Becky - as well as such unforgettable incidents as whitewashing a fence, swearing an oath in blood, and getting lost in a dark and labyrinthine cave. Below Tom Sawyer's sunny surface lurk hints of a darker reality, of youthful innocence and naïveté confronting the cruelty, hypocrisy, and foolishness of the adult world - a theme that would become more pronounced in Twain's Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. Despite such suggestions, Tom Sawyer remains Twain's joyful ode to the endless possibilities of childhood.

Summary

When I got there it was all still and Sunday-like, and hot and sunshiny; the hands was gone to the fields; and there was that kind of faint dronings of bugs and lies in the air that makes it seem so lonesome and like everybody's dead and gone.... In The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, a 13-year-old boy, Huck, is in search of adventure on the beautiful shores of the Mississippi River. When Huck escapes kidnapping by his own drunken father, he decides to find a canoe to shove off down the river, leaving behind his life of confinement and civilization. Soon Huck comes across Jim, Miss Watson's slave. While traveling down the river, Huck and Jim have many adventures, but more importantly, during many long talks, they become the best of friends, both in search of freedom. The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn is regarded by many critics and scholars to be the first "Great American novel".

The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn

Summary

Adventures of Huckleberry Finn (or, in more recent editions, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn) is a novel by Mark Twain, first published in the UK in December 1884 and in the US in February 1885. Commonly named among the great American novels, the work is among the first in major American literature to be written throughout in vernacular English, characterized by local color regionalism. It is told in the first person by Huckleberry "Huck" Finn, the narrator of two other Twain novels, Tom Sawyer Abroad and Tom Sawyer, Detective, and a friend of Tom Sawyer. It is a direct sequel to The Adventures of Tom Sawyer.   The book is noted for its colorful description of people and places along the Mississippi River. Set in a Southern antebellum society that had ceased to exist about 20 years before the work was published, Adventures of Huckleberry Finn is an often scathing satire on entrenched attitudes, particularly racism.   Perennially popular with readers, Adventures of Huckleberry Finn has also been the continued object of study by literary critics since its publication. The book was widely criticized upon release because of its extensive use of coarse language. Throughout the 20th century, and despite arguments that the protagonist and the tenor of the book are anti-racist, criticism of the book continued due to both its perceived use of racial stereotypes and its frequent use of racial slurs.

Pudd'nhead Wilson

Summary

At the beginning of Pudd'nhead Wilson a young slave woman, fearing for her infant's son's life, exchanges her light-skinned child with her master's. From this rather simple premise Mark Twain fashioned one of his most entertaining, funny, yet biting novels. On its surface, Pudd'nhead Wilson possesses all the elements of an engrossing nineteenth-century mystery: reversed identities, a horrible crime, an eccentric detective, a suspenseful courtroom drama, and a surprising, unusual solution. Yet it is not a mystery novel. Seething with the undercurrents of antebellum southern culture, the book is a savage indictment in which the real criminal is society, and racial prejudice and slavery are the crimes. Written in 1894, Pudd'nhead Wilson glistens with characteristic Twain humor, with suspense, and with pointed irony: a gem among the author's later works.

Life on the Mississippi

Summary

The mighty Mississippi River is the backdrop for this charming and adventurous tale. Samuel Clemens, who is better known as Mark Twain, began his Mississippi adventure as a riverboat captain and decided to pen a journal, recording the Mark Twain classic, Life on the Mississippi. Twain writes of the history of the river and relates his own adventures and misadventures as he seeks his fortune. During Mark Twain’s time on the Mississippi, not only was he inspired to write Life on the Mississippi, but his experiences would also motivate one of his greatest novels of all time, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. Life on the Mississippi is a first-hand account of river travel during the American pre-Civil War era and one of Twain’s finest works.

Le avventure di Tom Sawyer

Summary

Nelle "Avventure di Tom Sawyer" (apparso nel 1876) l'autore dà voce ai sentimenti, alle storie e alle superstizioni che la sua generazione ancora condivideva nel periodo appena antecedente la Guerra di secessione, dove l'insicurezza e i problemi razziali dipingevano lo scenario emotivo della società americana del Sud. La storia picaresca è incentrata sulle figure di Huck Finn e Tom Sawyer i quali, oltre che nelle "normali" avventure che potevano capitare ai monelli della loro età, si trovano coinvolti in un fatto di sangue, allorquando, intrufolatisi nel cimitero della loro cittadina, diventano muti testimoni del delitto del dottore del paese.  La rocambolesca serie di eventi che ne seguirà porterà Tom ad affrontare Joe l'Indiano, ben deciso a eliminare l'unico testimone del delitto. Tom riuscirà a salvarsi e a concludere felicemente l'avventura: da sempre monello, verrà consacrato finalmente eroe del paese!

Le avventure di Huckleberry Finn

Summary

La storia di Huck e della sua fuga in zattera lungo il Mississippi con il negro Jim, fino al ricongiungimento col compagno di scorrerie Tom Sawyer nel romanzo che nacque come proseguimento del precedente "Le avventure di Tom Sawyer" era tra le preferite di Ernest Hemingway, che citava sempre Mark Twain tra i suoi autori fondamentali: e non a caso, naturalmente, visto che fin dai suoi esordi anche l'autore di "Fiesta" lavorò molto duramente per riuscire a ricreare sulla pagina la lingua della strada, cosa per cui venne assai criticato. Molti, tra cui Joyce Carol Oates, considerano "Le avventure di Huckleberry Finn" "Il Grande Romanzo Americano". Altri, come Thomas Stearns Eliot, lo considerano l'unico vero capolavoro di Mark Twain. Di sicuro "Le avventure di Huckleberry Finn" è un romanzo-mondo, scritto superbamente, e divertentissimo. Huck Finn, in quanto ribelle adolescente refrattario a qualsiasi forma di autorità e di imposizione, sta all'origine di Holden Caulfield e di tutti i ribelli adolescenti della letteratura nordamericana. E il fiume Mississippi, che Twain conobbe a fondo in gioventù per averci lavorato come pilota su un battello, è al tempo stesso uno dei protagonisti principali del racconto e una metafora. Ma la storia di Huck Finn e del suo lungo viaggio, al termine del quale l'ormai ex ragazzino verrà a sapere della morte del padre e però subito progetterà di ripartire con i suoi compagni d'avventura (questa volta per i territori indiani) è anche una grande satira sulla democrazia americana e sugli americani, in genere timorati di Dio ma sempre felici di impiccare un negro (e quando si parla di leggi razziali bisognerebbe ricordarsi ogni volta di aggiungere che gli Stati Uniti d'America hanno mantenuto le loro fino alla seconda metà del Novecento).  (Dall'introduzione di Giuseppe Culicchia)

Summary

Der aus Amerika stammende Schriftsteller Mark Twain (1835-1910) bereiste Europa ausführlich und mehrfach. Mit scharfem Blick nahm er dabei nicht nur die Eigenheiten der deutschen Sprache ins Visier (nachzulesen im Essay "The Awful German Language"), sondern auch die Begeisterung seiner Zeitgenossen für Alpenbesteigungen. Insbesondere die Berichte des Briten Edward Whymper über seine Erstbesteigung des Matterhorns (1865 von Zermatt aus) hatten es dem Schriftsteller so angetan, dass er beschloss: "Ich will den Riffelberg besteigen!"

Humour - A Short Story Collection

Summary

Humour - A Short Story Collection.  The British, it is often said, have a stiff upper lip and a dry sense of humour.   It's true, we usually do, and in the case of this perfect compendium of short stories we absolutely do.  Listen to our Scottish raconteur J. M. Barrie and English wits Jerome K. Jerome and Edward Lear for perfect proof of that. But humour is many things and from many places, so we also feature Mark Twain, our very talented American friend, to complete this rather witty and clever volume of short stories.   Our readers include Richard Mitchley and James Taylor.

Adventures of Tom Sawyer: Tom Sawyer & Huckleberry Finn Series, Book 1

Summary

A classic tale of the journeys and challenges faced by young boys unravels in The Adventures of Tom Sawyer. The energetic Tom - who lives with his aunt - is frequently made to do things that he simply does not want to do; namely, going to school and to church. His days off are Saturdays, but when he misbehaves, even those are taken away from him by Aunt Polly. Yet after Tom and his friends witness a murder, for whom the wrong person is blamed, his summer of adventures truly begins. Later, Tom and his friend, Huck Finn, decide to go on a quest for buried treasure, only to find themselves in the presence of two thieves who have an evil plot to harm one of the widows in town. Purely by chance, Tom and his love interest, Becky, become trapped in a cave, and to Tom's fright, discover that there is someone else who is in the cave with them - someone that they would absolutely not like to cross. Ultimately, Tom and Becky are rescued, but the tale does not end there. In the true spirit of boyhood adventures, Tom and Huck reunite to continue their streak of treasure hunting and manage to devise a plan to create their own troupe of robbers.

Adventures of Huckleberry Finn

Summary

Mark Twain's The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn delivers the details of Huck Finn's life after the landmark novel Tom Sawyer, at the end of which Huck becomes fairly rich for a young person. In a stroke of maturity, however, Huck entrusts his small fortune to Judge Thatcher, who he can rely on for safekeeping. The next day, Huck's biological father comes into town in pursuit of his son and the money. Having lost the chance at the latter, his father kidnaps him, forcing Huck to fake his own death just to escape. Thus begins one of the most gripping cross-state adventures in literary history, as Huck joins a slave named Jim and the two of them plot their respective flights down the Mississippi River. Throughout the novel, Huck and Jim find themselves in a series of potentially compromising situations, especially since Jim is an escaped slave and there is a price put on his head. Huck eventually reunites with his old friend Tom Sawyer, who delivers a piece of news to him about Jim and Jim's former owner that is both shocking and joyful. A true masterpiece in exposing race relations as well as a young man's knack for adventure and misfortune is widely represented throughout this novel, which contributes to its timeless placement in the literary canon.

A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court

Summary

A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court tells the story of Hank Morgan, a 19th-century American - a Connecticut Yankee - who, after a blow to the head, awakens to find himself inexplicably transported back in time to early medieval England at the time of the legendary King Arthur. The story begins in Warwick Castle, where a man details his recollection of a tale told to by a "curious stranger" who is personified as a knight through his simple language and familiarity with ancient armor. After a brief tale of Sir Lancelot of Camelot and his role in slaying two giants from the third-person narrative, the man named Hank Morgan enters and, after being given whiskey by the narrator, he is persuaded to reveal more of his story.

A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court

Summary

The hit on the head that sends Hank Morgan back through 13 centuries does not affect his natural resourcefulness. Using his knowledge of an upcoming eclipse, Hank escapes a death sentence, and secures an important position at court. Gradually, he introduces 19th century technology and soon has an easy life. He becomes "The Boss" of the Kingdom, second only to the King. That does not stop him from making a disparaging remark which touches off an incredible series of events. Twain weaves many of the well-known Arthurian characters into his story, and includes a pitched battle between Morgan's men and the nobility. This is Mark Twain at his best.
