The Once and Future King

I have begun reading a rather heady novel.

I am fortunate not to have read the book as a youth. in my immaturity, I would have been impressed by its deprecating humor and preoccupation with thaumaturgy.

reading it now, I appreciate its bucolic setting, royal characters and righteous message.

indeed, my character would have been much attenuated had I read this novel, rather than The Pilgrim's Progress and The Faerie Queene, early in life.

  1. Thaumaturgy was recently the word of the day.
