Only a dozen or so pages of the Hawaiian novel survive; they're at Berkeley
and are singularly uninteresting. More interesting, however, is an argument
made by Kate Winter (SUNY Albany, I think) at MLA 18 months ago, that
>Connecticut Yankee< developed from the Hawaiian novel. The presence of
volcanos and naked children and some other environmental feature of
along with the nearly complete disappearance of the Hawaiian manuscript,
this hypothesis intriguing. The timing is right too. Anyone have further
thoughts on Winter's idea?
