Reader's note

A Connecticut Yankee, like others amount Mark Twain’s works, started out as an amusing idea - the Yankee who wakes up to find himself in sixth-century England - and, while never quite looking its comic character, turned into something deeper and darker. Hank Morgan sets out to introduce ‘the great and beneficent civilization of the nineteenth century’, and what results from the impact of new American upon Olde England is, in Justin Kaplan’s words, ‘an extravagant, savagely conflictive book, at the same time as entertainment and a dark, anarchy fable, a comic romance and a work of social criticism,’, the product of Twain’s own cruelly divide attitude. In scenes of ruch comedy and unnerving violence, ancient and modern stalk each other through the course of the book, until they meet in a last battle only to destroy each other in what has been described as ‘one of the most disturbing passages in American literature.’
