  1. Fantasy is not only a way of understanding reality, it is also a way of recreating the world. In order to do so, a deeper understanding and vision are required.

  2. In his essay “On Fairy-Stories”, J.R.R. Tolkien makes a pretty cool argument against the idea of Fantasy as escapism. Definitely worth a read. Cool post!

    • I’ve read quite a few excerpts from On Fairy-Stories—Tolkien geek, I am—maybe I should delve into the entire thing. 😉 Actually, I believe one of the related posts above has an excerpt from that work as well. The Secret Keeper blog, I think. Thanks for commenting today!
