The Book of Merlyn The Unpublished Conclusion to the Once and Future King (Paperback)
|Author: T. H. White|
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.''"
"This is the true last chapter of the 'The Once and Future King' and it should have its place there." - Sylvia T. Warner Book Jacket
"This mythic political fable for our time wasn't published when it was written because the world wasn't ready for it." - Peter Green New York Times
"...'The Book of Merlyn' is a personal as well as historical story that crisscrosses the centuries on the question of war and peace."
