内容简介

《曾经和永恒之王》是由T.H.怀特所著的一部有关亚瑟王传奇的小说。她第一次出版是在1958年,基本上囊括了所有的早期关于亚瑟王的内容。

The Once and Future King is an Arthurian fantasy novel written by T. H. White. It was first published in 1958 and is mostly a composite of earlier works written in a period between 1938 and 1941.
The title comes from the supposed inscription of the marker over King Arthur's grave, the internally rhymed hexameter: Hīc iacet Arthūrus, rex quondam, rexque futūrus — "Here lies Arthur, formerly king, and king to be."

T. H. White uses The Once and Future King as his own personal view of the ideal society. The book, most of which "takes place on the isle of Gramarye," chronicles the raising and educating of King Arthur, his rule as a king, and the romance between his best knight Sir Lancelot and his Queen Guinevere (which he spells Guenever). It ends immediately before Arthur's final battle against his illegitimate son Mordred. Though White admits his book's source material is loosely derived from Sir Thomas Malory's Le Morte d'Arthur (The Death of Arthur), he reinterprets the epic events, filling them with renewed meaning for a world enduring the Second World War.
The book is divided into 4 parts:
The Sword in the Stone (1938)
The Queen of Air and Darkness (1939) (published separately in somewhat different form as The Witch in the Wood)
The Ill-Made Knight (1940)
The Candle in the Wind (First published in the composite edition, 1958)

A final part called The Book of Merlyn (written 1941, published 1971) was published separately (ISBN 0-292-70769-X) following White's death. It chronicles Arthur's final lessons from Merlin before his death, although some parts of it were incorporated into the final editions of the previous books.
An often quoted passage from the book is the story that the badger calls his "dissertation," a retelling of the Creation story from Genesis.
