No other book, I think, has had such a great influence on my own writing. White’s agent once said of him that he had the power to make grown men cry, and he was right. This is prose as it should be written. It’s about King Arthur. Buy it.
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.
