“In human art, Fantasy is a thing best left to words, to true literature … Visible presentation of the fantastic image is technically too easy; the hand tends to outrun the mind, even to overthrow it.  Silliness and morbidity are frequent results.”

— J.R.R. Tolkien, “On Fairy-Stories”


“Nothing can be more disastrous than the view that the cinema can and should replace popular written fiction.  The elements which it excludes are precisely those which give the untrained mind its only access to the imaginative world.  There is death in the camera.”

     — C.S. Lewis, “On Stories”
