      Doug,

      That�s a great question. I wish I had a great answer. :)

      You may want to get a copy of Myth and Magic: Art according to the Inklings, edited by Eduardo Segura and Thomas Honegger, released by Walking Tree last November. It has two essays relevant to the question: �New Learning and New Ignorance: Magia, Goeteia, and the Inklings� by Tom Shippey, and �Words for Magic: goetia, g�l and l�th� by Dieter Bachmann.

      I don�t have a copy of this collection myself, but I heard Tom�s essay delivered as the keynote at the C.S. Lewis and Inklings Society conference back in April 2006. It was quite a brainful and extremely thought-provoking. More, in fact, than one could fully digest on a single exposure (or at least more than *I* could :), so I asked Tom for a copy by email, and he kindly obliged. I�ve read it two or three times since, and I�m still struggling to take it all in and to process all of its ramifications.�I�m happy to see it finally reaching a wider audience. Bachmann�s essay also sounds particularly interesting to me.

      Here is Walking Tree�s page for the collection:

      And here it is on Amazon:

      Regards,
      Jason
