This is the third issue of the Inklings Studies Supplements:
Tolkien and the Relation between Sub-creation and Reality
Edited by Giuseppe Pezzini and Eden O’Brien
This volume collects essays focussing, from different perspectives, on the problem of the relationship between fiction and reality or, in Tolkienian terms, between ‘secondary’ (sub-created) and ‘primary’ (created) worlds, between sub-creation(s) and Creation. This relationship is a central concern of Tolkien’s literary endeavour, as he himself acknowledged in a famous letter (no. 131, n. 145):
‘[My work] is, I suppose, fundamentally concerned with the problem of the relation of Art (and Sub-creation) and Primary Reality’.
