The Once and Future King Book 3, Chapter 35

By T.H. White

Book 3, Chapter 35

  • After a whole year, Lancelot has still not made a move on Guenever.
  • Guenever sees his behavior as no different from Sir Bors allowing those twelve maidens to jump to their deaths. Lancelot's just so selfish.
  • Lancelot is starting to also see things this way. He wants to keep his duty to God, but does he really have the right to sacrifice Guenever in this way?
  • Everything blows up one day when the two are singing together. All of a sudden, Guenever tells Lancelot to leave—go on a quest or something, but he's wearing her out.
  • Lancelot tells her that he's torn between his new love (God) and his old love (her).
  • Sarcastically, he tells her that they can start over if she really wants that, but when he turns around from the window, Guen is gone.
  • So, he packs up his stuff and takes off the next morning.
