Examines a number of concepts in Tolkien’s works—fall and redemption, good and evil, transcendence and transformation, touching on creativity, fate, and the hero’s journey along the way. Relates the final stage of the hero-journey, bringing back the boon, to the role of the artist in maintaining a sense of Recovery in our relationship with the world.
