I know this book was boring and humorless to a lot of students and I can understand why. Things like the telegraph mean nothing to us now, but in Mark Twain's time it was hot technology like a rocket or the Internet are to us today.
Mark Twain was saying, what if we took our modern technology back to a time when people believed in magic and faught with swords and armor. Whoever did this could probably convince these people that the technology was a superior magic and could use this knowledge to dominate them.
This is what happens in the story, but only for awhile. Eventually, even the people in King Arthur's court adjust to having the new technology and no longer see it as magic. For example, the people running the telephone exchange don't care about the Connecticut Yankee's "magic" they just want to keep the lines of communication open with Camelot.
This kind of story is called "satire". It is basically a story that teaches us something by making fun of something else. In this story, Mark Twain makes fun of the kind of people who think they can accomplish anything with technology. The Yankee thinks that he can use technology to trick the nights of King Arthur's court and to manipulate them. At first he succeeds, but gradually they become so immersed in the technology that they don't care about magic and legends any more. Once their mental landscape changes, the Yankee has lost the context he needed to control them. The main argument here is that technology does not solve everything, it just produces new problems. And the kind of people who worship technology are bound to fail in one way or another.
Hope this helps.

This book helped me so much! I wrote my thesis on the Connecticut Yankee and this book was exactly what I needed to finish the theses and get all the important information about the book there was to get. I received it with a big amount of the previous owner's notes, which was not necessarily a bad thing, it actually helped several times. You should definitely get this book if you want to research Twain's Yankee on a deeper level.

I find it quite hard to make up my mind about this book. The writing – as always – is superb and it has absolutely brilliant, funny, moving, shocking passages. Unfortunately, Mark Twain has trouble keeping his overboarding imagination in check, it runs away with him and with the story, resulting in long-drawn-out annoyingly silly and exaggerated chapters that interrupt and spoil the mood of the tale (therefore no 5-star rating).

In “Yankee” Mark Twain forcefully expresses his deeply-held ideals of justice, liberty and equality for all men and women. The book is an indictment of man’s inhumanity to man (be it in the 6th or the 19th century). The Catholic Church, royalty and nobility bear the brunt of his indignation but it applies equally to all other institutions or persons who feel the need to abuse, dominate, exploit, denigrate or look down upon others. As Mark Twain says in the words of the Yankee : “There are times when one would like to hang the whole human race and finish the farce.”

Imagine yourself thrown back fourteen hundred years to the kingdom of the legendary Arthur. Add some technical know-how, a touch of arrogance, and a taste for adventure, and you would be Hank Morgan. The successful head superintendent of an arms factory, Morgan is sent back in time by a nasty knock on the head, and finds himself a prisoner at the court of the once and future king. Through an incredible knowledge of astronomy, and mechanics, and his natural intelligence, he finds his way to the top of the Arthurian power structure, and becomes The Boss. Posing as a powerful magician, he impresses the people and the court with magnificent firework displays, stellar predictions, and other "tricks" that today are taken for granted. As he learns more about the social inequalities in the culture that he has no choice but to live in, he comes to the conclusion that he must free the masses from the oppression of the nobility. Morgan attempts to impose the ideals, governing system, and ways of thinking of the industrialized 19th century onto the primitive 6th century. Secretly, he develops a civilization of his own time inside Arthur's Kingdom, his eventual goal being to destroy every remnant of the old ways, and replace them with the new. Traveling the kingdom, Morgan spreads his influence and his beliefs. He encounters on his adventures both heartbreaking situations of cruelty, and heartwarming scenes of humanity. Throughout the whole kingdom, however, he always sees the need to destroy the feudal system. Twain teaches us something through Morgan's determination, and something else by the calamitous ending of the book.Lesen Sie weiter... ›

Die Schriftgröße ist kaum lesbar, der Druck ist eine Frechheit. Ich frage mich, wie es eine so schlechte Ausgabe in den Verkauf von Amazon geschafft hat. Ich habe noch nie einen schlechteren Druck gesehen.
