poetic

I haven't read or listen to poetry for many many years. it was at times difficult to follow or even stay focused on. It was however a delightful story of fantasy and a true story of dreams and fairy delight.
I chose to read it because I had read that it was read by and influenced C.S. Lewis.

Fascinating in Historical Context

Beautifully written. Challenging in historical context. Important in understanding Tolkien and Lewis and how they developed.
