The Sword in the Stone by: T.H. White

The Sword in the Stone
T.H. White
Various Editions

This is an interesting little book. I read it as part of my children's literature course back in 1999. The book is partially Arthurian Legend, part social commentary and part farce.

I did not like the inappropriate references for the time of the story, trains, buses … As well I didn't appreciate the mixing of Robin Hood (Wood) in the 12th Century with Arthur of the 6th Century.

Yet all in all it was a fun book - easy to read.

(First written as Journal Reading Notes in 1999.)
