T. H. White - LIFE STORIES
 
 
6/17/1938     White's King Arthur
On this day in 1938 T. H. White's The Sword in the Stone was published, the first volume in the eventual quartet known as The Once and Future King. Although mindful of the quest archetypes, White's version of Sir Thomas Malory's version of the King Arthur legends takes its own wandering, anachronistic and quirky path, often suggesting Monty Python more than Malory.

"T.H. White's The Once and Future King is easily the most accessible Arthurian work of the 20th century. It appeals to audiences of all ages and to readers on many different levels. Its use of humor and anachronistic references help ground the reader in the subject matter in a way that no one before or since has accomplished."
