Description

The original "CliffsNotes" study guides offer a look into critical elements and ideas within classic works of literature. In "CliffsNotes on A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court", you dig into Mark Twain's notably caustic account of a culture clash in medieval society. Transported back in time from the nineteenth century, the story's central character attempts to introduce 'modern' changes to his new place in the sixth century. This study guide follows the action from chapter to chapter with commentaries that bring sense to the entertaining satire. Other features that help you figure out this important work include: life and background of the author; introduction to and synopsis of the book; summaries of each chapter within the work; and, a review section that tests your knowledge and suggests essay topics. Classic literature or modern-day treasure - you'll understand it all with expert information and insight from "CliffsNotes" study guides.show more
