    "Wonderful story but a little too much Philosophy"

    I adore T H White's writing, with his anachronisms and his glorious descriptions of his beloved England. The Candle in the Wind is the wonderful story of the only too human Guinevere, Lancelot and Arthur, but the Book of Merlyn is a discussion of the state of the world, as it was written just before and during the second World War, with the terrifying rise of the Nazis. If you can last through the philosophising, you will feel deep empathy for gentle, loving Arthur as he nears the end of his amazing life. Beautifully narrated.
