What criteria does Tolkien use to define fairy tales?

Reading Due: J.R.R. Tolkien’s “On Fairy-Stories”: Bring Tolkien’s essay to class.

Skim the entire essay. Then read carefully the following passages:

¶s 1-3: Introduction

¶ 4 (bottom, p. 38) – just before the final ¶ on p. 47: Definition

You will need to read these passages more than once to understand them. The annotating techniques you used on Noah’s article will help you identify the following:

  • Tolkien’s purpose,

  • the three questions he wishes to address,

  • his definition of fairy within his larger definition of fairy-story,

  • the nature of Faërie or the “Perilous Realm,”

  • the role of magic in fairy tales, and

  • the two “primordial human desires” that are satisfied by that magic.

Expect a quiz on pages 38-47 of Tolkien’s essay.
