Contains an interesting essay in which Tolkien reflects on fairy-stories and 'fantasy'. This gets referenced by a lot of people who talk about 'fantasy literature' as a genre and is an interesting read.

This is a miscellaneous collection of essays of varying degrees of interest. While I appreciated most of them, I suspect this will be a bit more of a niche read for most people. The Tolkien, C. S. Lewis, and Barfield essays in the middle of the book are especially worth reading.
