Description

When Hank Morgan is cracked on the head by a crowbar in 19th-century Connecticut, one of literature's most extraordinary fantasy tales begins to unfold. Humorous, devilishly insightful, and resoundingly contemporary, A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court remains one of the most celebrated stories in the canon of American writing. Awakening to find himself in the England of King Arthur, Morgan discovers a world of fear, injustice, and ignorance hiding behind a Utopian mirage. The tough-minded Yankee—the embodiment of scientific knowledge—must overcome daunting obstacles, including Merlin the Magician, as he sets out to enlighten sixth-century England. Only Mark Twain's unparalleled gift for story-telling could produce this acrobatic tour de force that moves from broad comedy to biting social satire, and from the pure joy of wild high jinks to deeply probing insights into the nature of man. Norman Dietz's wry narration and wonderful comedic sense will enchant listeners for generations to come.

reviews
      • premium: True
      • source: AudioFile Magazine
      • content: A practical, no-nonsense New Englander of 1889, knocked unconscious in a fight, wakes up in old England of 528, where, by dint of his industry, he becomes Sir Boss, a prominent and dissident member of the Round Table. With a trace of cockney in his voice, Chris Walker sprints through Mark Twain's revision of the chivalric ideal as if he were late for an appointment, tripping occasionally and never quite connecting with the authorial personality. He has no idea of what a Connecticut Yankee is or why placing one in Camelot should produce such telling thematic consequences. His main achievement is in keeping so much of the text straight at such high RPM. Y.R. (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine
