Merlin Agrees

And now for a word from Merlin the Magician

A reader with the stellar yet thaumaturgical name of Astrosorceror remarks in regard to my last column that Merlin, the student of Bleys, agrees with the point about the majesty of truth.

Myself, this is my favorite film version of Merlin. My favorite written version comes not from Mallory, but from C.S. Lewis in THAT HIDEOUS STRENGTH: trust a true medieval scholar to portray the stark differences and strange resemblances between a Roman Breton and a modern Englishman so adroitly.
