Sarah Beach

Lester Furnival from Charles Williams' All Hallows Eve


Examines the significance of symbolism of transcendence in several works by Yeats and Joyce, and ties this to theories of consolation and eucatastrophe in Tolkien’s “On Fairy-stories.” Finds Tolkien’s theory of sub-creation more fulfilling than their view of the artist as a creator.
