Re: [mythsoc] Germaine Greer has at Tolkien again...
- View SourceGreer's ax is that she doesn't like Tolkien and therefore no one else can
like Tolkien for a purely literary reason. She apparently considers herself
the ultimate arbiter of literary taste and can't believe that other people
might differ so greatly from her tastes. The popularity of Tolkien must
therefore be explained as being for some non-literary reason.
