Tolkien noted, “It is not difficult to imagine the peculiar excitement and joy that one would feel, if any specially beautiful fairy-tale were found to be ‘primarily’ true, its narrative to be history. . . . The joy would have exactly the same quality, if not the same degree, as the joy which the ‘turn’ in a fairy-story gives: such joy has the very taste of primary truth” (“On Fairy-Stories” 72).   Tolkien, J. R. R. “On Fairy-Stories.” The Tolkien Reader. New York: Ballantine, 1966. 3-84.
