to the fictional works of Lewis and Tolkien but I did not know what
the term "mythopoesis" meant nor that they had coined it. I can see
that it's going to be something of a life changing concept for me.
Is the definition in the above referenced article satisfactory for
everyone? Is there a better or more complete one I should know of?
Where can I find a more thorough discussion of the idea, preferably
by Lewis or Tolkien?
