9780007121144: The Trials of Arthur: The Life and Times of a Modern-day King

This book is an alternative armchair adventure that chronicles the exploits of one of the most outrageous men of our time--a nature lover, a profane mystic, who parties with his druidical knights, the Warband, while preaching of personal freedom from atop a motorcycle.

About the Author:

C.J. Stone

Review:

'Am I alone in thrilling to this noble throwback to the age of Celtic romance? .. our Prime Minister is a grinning charmless twerp; our Archbishop of Canterbury has as much spiritual charisma as a raw potato; and the House of Windsor is dullsville. I'd dump the whole pack of them tomorrow and replace them with a single Royal, Spiritual and Political leader -- King Arthur.' (Evening Standard)

Book Description HarperCollins Publishers, United Kingdom, 2003. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Eco-campaigning druid king Arthur Pendragon has waged a highly public, completely eccentric 14-year battle to assert the right of everyone to worship at Stonehenge. He has taken the Home Office to the High Court and HM Government to the European Court - and recently won. This summer solstice they are allowing general access to the public for the first time for years. Through the story of Arthur, this book explores the state of Britain, politically and spiritually; what Britain means at the start of a new millenium. Arthur is a key to exploring the nature of Britain on many levels; mythical, political, historical, magical, moral and physical. The book contrasts the landscape of old Britain, with its sacred groves and ancient monuments, which Arthur invokes and uses as his backdrop, and the new landscape of drive-in McDonalds, car-parks and shopping centres that have become the moral backdrop of the British psyche in the 21st century. This title covers the exploits and anecdotes of Arthur s past 14 years and at the same time serves as an inspiring mission statement - an anyone can do it manifesto - that whoever you are, whatever you do, you can create your own persona, live your own life, any way you choose to. It presents a slice of British history, popular culture and the eco-warrior movement - seen through the eyes of someone frequently on the wrong side of bureaucracy and the law - and a State-of-Britain exploration from this alternative viewpoint.
