“Many children make up, or begin to make up, imaginary languages. I have been at it since I could write.” — J. R. R. Tolkien
Bilbo’s first step out of The Shire, the Pevensies’ fall through the wardrobe, Princess Irene’s search of the castle—they all lead to lands, creatures, and adventures that are otherworldly and full of delight.
Few writers have captured the hearts and imaginations of millions like J. R. R. Tolkien, C. S. Lewis, and George MacDonald have. They forged the way to fantastical worlds while teaching lessons about good and evil, selflessness and pride, bravery and cowardice.
These three authors popularized the fantasy genre and they’ve left a lasting impact on literature as a whole.
