The Once and Future King Notes
In medieval England, Sir Ector raises two young boys—his son, Kay, and an adopted orphan named Art, who has come to be known as the Wart. Drinking port one day, Sir Ector and his friend Sir Grummore Grummursum decide that they should go on a quest to find a new tutor for the boys, since their previous tutor has gone insane. One day after working in the fields, Kay and the Wart go hawking. They take the hawk Cully from the Mews—the room where the hawks are kept—and head into the fields. Even though the Wart is better at handling Cully, Kay insists on carrying the hawk, and he releases him prematurely in the hopes that the hawk will catch a nearby rabbit. Cully, who is in a temperamental mood, flies into a nearby tree instead and perches there, glaring evilly at the two boys.

The free The Once and Future King notes include comprehensive information and analysis to help you understand the book. - Which guides should we add?
The first volume of The Once and Future King, The Sword in the Stone , begins as the Wart, an innocent and wholesome boy living in twelfth-century England, is informed by his adoptive father, Sir Ector, that he must begin his education. While wandering in the Forest Sauvage after a night of adventure with King Pellinore who hunts for the Questing Beast , the Wart chances upon the cottage of Merlyn, an old magician who "lives backward" through time and thus possesses the ability to know the future. Merlyn informs the Wart that he will become his tutor and accompanies him back to Sir Ector's Castle of the Forest Sauvage. After reviewing the wizard's references, Sir Ector hires the old magician. Kay, the Wart's older brother, becomes jealous over the Wart's fortune, as he does throughout the novel. Merlyn's lessons consist of transforming the Wart into different kinds of animals.
All rights reserved. Yup: just like that awesome old Disney movie. It was based on this first of four books in the Once And Future King quartet. Sir Ector and Sir Grummore Grummursum that name are discussing questing and the best way to go about educating boys. A tutor, apparently, is required, since Sir Ector can't very well send his boys off to Eton.
