C.S. Lewis on allegory
- C.S. Lewis and allegory.
Source: Carpenter 1978:30.
Lewis wrote to Tolkien on 7 December 1929, after reading
Tolkien's poem on Beren and Luthien, "The two things that come
out clearly are the sense of reality in the background and the
mythical value: the essence of a myth being that it should
have no taint of allegory to the maker and yet should suggest
incipient allegories to the reader."
