Product Description

T. H. White retells the entire Arthurian Epic in The Once And Future King. The story takes Arthur from the glorious lyrical phase of his youth through the disillusioning early years of his years of his reign to the mature years in which his vision of hte Round Table develops into the search for the Holy Grail and finally to his weary old age.
In part, T. H. White has drawn on published material which he has revised and reworked heavily to bring form and continuity to an over-all work, a tetralogy which will stand as unique and vivid and quite apart from the individual effects of the various particular books. And in part the author has created new material as enchanting as any he has set on paper.
