Re: What is "Mythopoeic"?

> Has Diana published this in Mythlore or anywhere else???At least two of her talks at Mythcon have been about this. She spoke about
the overall theory and how it applied to Lewis at the 1992 Mythcon. It was a
summary of her Ph.D. thesis. She spoke at the 1998 Mythcon about Joy
Davidman's influence on _Till We Have Faces_. The 1992 talk is in the
Proceedings of the Tolkien Centenary. You'll have to ask her if she's
published anything else about this.
I suggested to her at the 1992 Mythcon that she should write a definitive
book on the subject of influence. This makes me, I guess, sort of the
co-author of the book when it comes out. Well, I've prepared my acceptance
speech for when the book wins the Mythopoeic Scholarship Award. Ahem, on
behalf of my co-author and myself, I'd like to thank the members of the
Academy . . . I mean, the Society . . .
