"A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court" is a satirical tale of contrast between eras. In this perennial work, Connecticut Yankee Hank Morgan, a modern man of the late 19th century, is transported back to the sixth century world of King Arthur. Morgan discovers the social stratification and very different norms of feudal society as he encounters King Arthur, Merlin and numerous other characters of legend. Morgan uses his 19th century rational knowledge and his Yankee ingenuity to spark changes in the social, economic, religious and political status quo -- changes that ultimately provoke a powerful reaction from the established order.
