This tome is not the easiest of sells, but no matter what you think of of fantasy, of Arthurian myth, or of cutesy Disney adaptations (‘The Sword in the Stone’), this is a truly TERRIFIC read: absurd, genre-defying, gripping – precisely the sort of book that will stay with you for the rest of your life.
The classic novel of King Arthur. A beautiful paperback edition of The Once and Future King, White’s masterful retelling of the Arthurian legend. T.H. White’s masterful retelling of the Arthurian legend is an abiding classic. Here all five volumes that make up the story are published together in a single volume, as White himself always wished. This is the tale of King Arthur and his shining Camelot; of Merlyn and Owl and Guinevere; of beasts who talk and men who fly; of knights, wizardry and war. It is the book of all things lost and wonderful and sad; the masterpiece of fantasy by which all others are judged. Contains The Sword in the Stone, The Witch in the Wood , The Ill-Made Knight, The Candle in the Wind and The Book of Merlyn.
