Taum Santoski XIX

'Aphorisms Towards a Poetics of Fantasy'

19. Within the form of mythological epic stand some pivotal works, two based upon the form established by Tolkien. The Earthsea Trilogy and the Chronicles of Thomas Covenant are derivative of Tolkien. Earthsea presents a mythology set in a world unconnected in any way with our own; Covenant is a traveler from our world into another world, Land.

--Taum Santoski, circa 1984
