On Fairy Stories

I was suppose to read this in my Tolkien class, but it was a summer class--and let's be honest, despite my love of Tolkien IT WAS SUMMER! I mean the parts I read--the beginning--were good and interesting but it was hot and I preferred to spend my time in the pool verses trying to understand Tolkien. But I finally repented, saw the light, and pulled out Tolkien's essay "On Fairy-stories" and absolutely loved it. I cannot believe that it took me 28 years to read this.
