The Book of Merlyn
The Book of Merlyn: The Unpublished Conclusion to The Once and Future King | T.H. White
8 posts | 14 read | 7 to read
This magical account of King Arthur's last night on earth spent weeks on the New York Times best-seller list following its publication in 1977. Even in addressing the profound issues of war and peace, The Book of Merlyn retains the life and sparkle for which White is known. The tale brings Arthur full circle, an ending, White wrote, that "will turn my completed epic into a perfect fruit, 'rounded off and bright and done.'"

Slowly gathering up my scattered books. This cover is one of my favorites in my King Arthur collection.

I'm working instead of partying tonight but Happy St. Patrick's day everyone! ☘️

KathyWheeler Love that book. Also, when I don‘t eat breakfast at home, those egg white egg bites are what I get at Starbucks. That is what you‘re eating, right? (edited) 2y
Lylah @KathyWheeler yep, I work there! I'm sick of quite a lot of the food but not these guys just yet 2y
KathyWheeler @Lylah It‘s easy to get sick of food where you work. My first job was in an ice cream shop; I didn‘t eat ice cream for years after that.😄 2y

Even if I didn't work with unschoolers, I would think this quote pretty perfect...😌

Finally found a copy of this book that I never even knew existed despite loving The Once and Future King and the Sword in the Stone. The illustrations are killer! Normally I would go back and re TOAFK again before tackling this unpublished conclusion but it's packed away. So I'm going in. "There was a king..."

It took me much longer than it should have to read this slim volume, but the last book in The Once and Future King packs quite a punch.

T.H. White's personal beliefs on war and the meaning of humanity shine through a return of young Wart's original animal council. If you didn't have dreadful feelings about mid-20th century authors, you will now.
