Language: English . Brand New. This is the complete box set of T. H. White s epic fantasy novel of the Arthurian legend. The novel is made up of five parts: The Sword in the Stone, The Witch in the Wood, The Ill-Made Knight, The Candle in the Wind and The Book of Merlyn. Merlyn instructs the Wart (Arthur) and his brother Sir Kay in the ways of the world. One of them will need it - the King has died leaving no heir, and a rightful one must be found by pulling a sword from an anvil resting on a stone. In the second and third parts of the novel, Arthur has become King and the kingdom is threatened from the north. In the final two books, the ageing king faces his greatest challenge, when his own son threatens to overthrow him. In The Book of Merlyn, Arthur s tutor Merlyn reappears, and teaches him that, even in the face of apparent ruin, there is hope. N° de réf. du libraire AAZ9789626349014
Synopsis : The complete box set of T. H. White's epic fantasy novel of the Arthurian legend. The novel is made up of five parts: The Sword in the Stone, The Witch in the Wood, The Ill-Made Knight, The Candle in the Wind and The Book of Merlyn.
I've read White's epic several times, but Neville Jason narrates with such lucidity and charm that I enjoyed it more than ever. Told with intimate immediacy, subtly nuanced in its judgments on good and evil, and by turns funny, frightening, exciting, cruel, tragic and elegiac, it offers children and adults alike inspiring moral guidance and a vivid and realistic picture of medieval Britain. A magnificent long-haul listening experience and the perfect present for any of T.H. White's many fans. --Christina Hardyment, The Times
What pleasures await in this exceptional production of T.H. White's classic retelling of the tales of King Arthur and Sir Kay and Merlin and the Sword and Round Table in magical once-upon-a-time England. For those who have never read these five books, prepare to be surprised by their adultness, their laugh-out-loud humor and tongue-in-cheek commentary on modern life; for those who know them well, prepare to be delighted with Neville Jason's transcendent reading. The lovely timbre of his narrative voice, his rhythmic, easy pacing and host of individual characterizations transport listeners into White's weird and wonderful otherworld as quickly as Alice slipped through the looking glass. This long production is so entrancing that one wishes it would never end. The beautiful packaging and helpful notes add to the satisfaction. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award --A.C.S., AudioFile
