The once and future king

7 Ungluers have Faved this Work
The four volumes that make up 'The Once and Future King', 'The Sword in the Stone', 'The Witch in the Wood', 'The Ill-Made Knightand' ,The Candle in the Wind', will bring into sharp focus the essential tragedy of Arthur's life - his illegitimate birth - which leads to his begetting Mordred upon his half-sister Morgan Le Fay, the Queen of Air and Darkness. It begins with the story of a young orphan boy growing up in a castle. His tutor, the magician Merlyn, guards the secret of his true identity, until one day the boy comes across a sword stuck fast in a stone. T.H. White brings to life the major British epic of all time with brilliance, grandeur, warmth and charm. Exquisite comedy offsets the tragedy of Arthur's personal doom and White's own overwhelming nostalgia for a lost land of England. 'The Once and Future King' is one of the central fantasy texts of the twentieth century. First published in this format in 1958, the extraordinary freshness and intensity of the writing make this imaginative retelling of the Arthurian legend an abiding classic.
