(1906 - 1964)
T.H. White’s quartet of novels published between 1938 and 1958, The Once and Future King, adapts Thomas Malory’s late-fifteenth-century Le Morte d’Arthur, the first English prose account of the Arthurian legends. He achieved his first literary success with an autobiographical book, England Have My Bones, published in 1936. A reclusive man with interests in fishing and hunting, White also published a book on falconry, The Goshawk, and two works of social history.
