Tolkien addresses his philosophy-poem “Mythopoeia” to C.S. Lewis, who said that myths were “lies breathed through silver.”
In this episode, we discuss the meaning of “Mythopoeia” and how it serves as a sort of spiritual and creative manifesto for Tolkien. Plus, Greta comes up with some killer haikus on the fly.
