Susan K. Harris, editor. Collected for the first time in a single volume, Mark Twain's three literary encounters with medieval and Renaissance Europe. The Prince and the Pauper, a children's classic, brings an adult American's point of view to the traditional society of Henry VIII's England. In A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court, a hilarious burlesque of knighthood gives way to a darker questioning of both ancient and modern society. The long unavailable fictional biography of 'the most extraordinary person the human race has ever produced,' Personal Recollections of Joan of Arc provides a glimpse of the moral imagination of America's greatest humorist.
