A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court Chapter 15

By Mark Twain

Chapter 15

Sandy's Tale

  • The Yankee asks Sandy to tell her about the knights they had just captured, and immediately regrets the decision, since it starts her talking nonstop again.
  • Sandy speaks of the exploits of Sir Gawain and Uwaine. The Yankee periodically interrupts to point out their wastefulness and the general absurdity of their exploits.
  • The Yankee dozes off, thinking about how the knights are wasted in an era that doesn't put their abilities to better use.
  • The sun eventually sets, with Sandy only just getting around to telling the Yankee about the knights they captured.
  • The pair stop for the night at a castle. Sandy says she doesn't know who runs it.
