"But there would always be a “fairy-tale” as long as there was any Thórr. When the fairy-tale ceased, there would be just thunder, which no human ear had yet heard."

"To be dissolved, or to be degraded, is the likely fate of Fantasy when a dramatist tries to use it, even such a dramatist as Shakespeare. ‘Macbeth’ is indeed a work by a playwright who ought, at least on this occasion, to have written a story, if he had the skill or patience for that art."


J.R.R. Tolkien, “On Fairy Stories.”

This is from an essay that the Don wrote and I'm actively hunting it down. FYRIII said she reads it once a year, and finds "it just gets more wondrous and strange." I have got have it!

On Fairy-Stories can be found in Tree and Leaf along with Leaf by Niggle.

There is also a book called A Tolkien Miscellany that has On Fairy-Stories.

Amazon has a listing:
A Tolkien Miscellany
This book, with illustrations, gathers some of J.R.R. Tolkien's least-known and hardest-to-find works in one volume. These include "Smith of Wootton Major (story of a magical gift concealed in the most amazing cake), "Farmer Giles of Ham" (a dragon terrorizing the English village of Ham and the townspeople only hope is a local farmer with an inflated reputation of chasing away giants), "Tree and Leaf" (a work consisting of Tolkien's groundbreaking essay "On Fairy-stores" - a most readable examination of the meaning of fantasy), "The Adventures of Tom Bombadil" (sixten poems from the Red Book) and "Sir Gawain and teh Green Knight" (Tolkien's first career translation of medieval poetry).


Looks like the copy editor did not look to close at the spelling in that description. :roll: :)

Also why I should be about reading/listening to The Silmarillion. I have the Book, I have the audio, and I have no excuse. Nienna, virgin, queen and mourner of Arda, is my patronus.

For some reason, The Silmarillion is kaput - the free one :( . I'm going to keep looking though, because I want to know how all of these names are pronounced.
