Editorial Reviews

Review

• Compares and contrasts Tolkien's and Lewis's views of art and imagination, including their views about the value and purpose of fantasy literature and their attitudes toward allegory and religious meaning in fantasy

• Provides insights into their different artistic processes and goals as writers

• Describes their influences on one another and opinions of each other's fantasy works

• Draws on valuable information from the authors' letters, essays, and short fiction

Book Description

Although J.R.R. Tolkien and C. S. Lewis are usually associated with one another as friends and academic colleagues, they claim they did not influence each other's work. Yet, we are told, Lewis remarked to Tolkien, "There is too little of what we really like in stories, I am afraid we shall have to write some ourselves." They flipped a coin. As a result, Tolkien was to write about time and Lewis about space.
