The novel by Mark Twain (1835—1910) "A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court" is not only a satiric parody for the tales of chivalry but also one of the first belles-lettres descriptions of a voyage in time. The main hero who got accustomed to the comfortable life in America of the XIX century, quite unexpectedly gets into the epoch of the Middle Ages, and what is more, into the Kingdom of the legendary British King Arthur. But the enterprising and inventive Yankee quickly gets adapted to new unusual conditions, and employing his knowledge of science, technology and history he begins to turn on his "charms" — to change the British society as per sample of America of his day. The book is full of irony and makes an unforgettable impression.
