Why an aristocracy ? part 2 Revisiting Narnia
Again from "Revisiting Narnia" "Lewis's decried certain trends in the educational system of his day for teaching that emotional responses to imaginative texts and beauty in poetry and nature were purely subjective and revealed no truth. It is in making the imaginative knowing of myth,fairy tale and heart's desire out to be mere dream and play.If our dreams and play are mere fun and fancy,then our deepest wishes and desires for life can just as easily be reduced to nothing,to an allusion or projections of our own psyches.
