Description

Based on medieval Arthurian legends, The Once and Future King is a twentieth-century version of young Arthur's quest for the sword Excalibur and his claim to the throne of England. Including many well-known and much-loved episodes with Merlyn, the sorcerer; Morgan La Fay, the witch; and knights jousting and hounds engaged in the hunt, White's novel adds to the lore surrounding the person of King Arthur. CliffsNotes brings you this easy-to-understand study guide that covers all four volumes of The Once and Future King with special emphasis given to the most popular volume, The Sword in the Stone. The other three novellas are treated within critical essays.
