I read T. H. White’s The Once and Future King the other day. I don’t reccomend it; and I shall recount my reasons here.
The book itself is divided into books, minor books I should say. Well, the first book and a half were quite good, even hysterically funny. After that, the quality of White’s writing dropped off dramatically, and became a re-hash of Malory. Also, White got on his hobby-horse and talked about ideals, and politics, and what-not, and got very dry and dull indeed.
I would recommend something other than this, but I’ve forgotten the name of the book that I loved– and I think it’s long out of print, because I can’t find it. I suppose Malory, whose work I dislike (I blame the Normans for the story of Lancelot and Guenevere. I’ll explain later.), might be in order, but there is a great deal of work to be found written about Arthur.
Well, I hope you find something better to read about King Arthur, and anyone with any suggestions is welcome to post them in the comment box.
