THE ONCE & FUTURE KING incorporates all four of the author's, Arthurian novels—THE SWORD IN THE STONE, THE WITCH IN THE WOOD, THE ILL-MADE KNIGHT, and the concluding volume, THE CANDLE IN THE WIND—"I have had the Matter of Britain on my hands for twenty years . . . I have tried to deal with every side of it—the clash between Might and Right, man's place in nature, the problem of war, the racial background which is an important part of the story, and with King Arthur's personal doom . . . I have tried to look at it through the eyes of young people, because I don't much believe in the modern theory that the whole object of life is gratified desire"— T.H. White. #4JS
