I have no idea why this Arthurian epic is buried in Knox County's archives, when fantasies like The Hobbit and Dune continue to circulate vigorously. The Once and Future King seems almost to have been lost to history, even though it's thorough, funny, philosophical, and engrossing. I love the tale of Arthur's struggle to do good: "Why can't you harness Might so that it works for Right?" And I'm fascinated by T.H. White's portrayal of Arthur's queen, Guinevere: "She was pretty Jenny, who could think and feel."
