Examines the ways the short story “Leaf by Niggle” differs from other works by Tolkien: primarily because it is a more obvious allegory, but also because of the clear way the allegory is worked out morally, aesthetically, and religiously. Considers the story as “midway between the essay [OFS] where Tolkien talks about his work, and most of his other fiction and poetry, where he simply gets on with it.”
