Hey, everyone. Long time no see.

Last time I was on this forum was in 2008 so I feel like a noob since I had to reactivate my membership here.

I've resently been re-reading Lord Foul's Bane because I'm working on my senior thesis for my undergrad. My thesis title is "Out of the Nursery and into Mordor: Making a Case for the Fantasy Genre as Literature." My two primary sources are LoTR and TCTC so I'm trying to remember things I've forgotten.

Looking forward to catching up.

You will definitely want to check out Epic Fantasy: Necessary Literature by Stephen R Donaldson.

Thank you so much! I'd already read his Epic Fantasy and the Modern World essay (which was amazing) but I had not heard of this one. Perfect!

Delighted by your title. That is an amaaaaazing juxtaposition. Laughing

His sense of evil is diluted or lacking altogether, and so he has forgotten the price of restoration.
