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.

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
  • 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.
