      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."
