Overview

ANNOTATED:

* Contains literary critiques, detailed biographies, and detailed historical context


DESCRIPTION:

One of Mark Twain's most popular works, this Special Critical Edition of A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court (Cambridge World Classics) is the only volume which contains the complete unabridged novel along with two bonus critical and biographical essays which examine, in depth, Mark Twain's life and literary legacy.


EXCERPT:

"I find I can't go on; but come with me, I've got it all written out, and you can read it if you like."

In his chamber, he said: "First, I kept a journal; then by and by, after years, I took the journal and turned it into a book. How long ago that was!"

He handed me his manuscript, and pointed out the place where I should begin:

"Begin here—I've already told you what goes before." He was steeped in drowsiness by this time. As I went out at his door I heard him murmur sleepily: "Give you good den, fair sir."
I sat down by my fire and examined my treasure. The first part of it—the great bulk of it—was parchment, and yellow with age. I scanned a leaf particularly and saw that it was a palimpsest. Under the old dim writing of the Yankee historian appeared traces of a penmanship which was older and dimmer still—Latin words and sentences: fragments from old monkish legends, evidently. I turned to the place indicated by my stranger and began to read"


SPECIAL NOOK ENABLED FEATURES:

This edition contains special Nook enabled features, including interactive table of contents. The volume also employs PerfectLink (TM) technology which allows Nook readers to enjoy not only a fully interactive table of contents, but also the ability to click through to every single individual chapter in the novel.
