After reading Malory's Morte d' Arthur, Twain made the following entry in his notebook: "Dream of being a knight-errant in armor in the Middle Ages. Have the notions and habits, though, of the present day mixed with the necessities of that. No pockets in the armor . No way to manage certain requirements of nature. Can't scratch. Cold in the head and can't blow. Can't get a handkerchief. Can't dress or undress myself. Always getting struck by lightning. Fall down and can't get up."
