In his Preface, Robert Morse states that both Vergil and Tolkien present myth as an aspect of an historical continuum. For these authors, myth does not seem to represent a falsehood, but rather it seems to narrate a record of experience from which humanity learns. Thus, myth is...a form of memory. In Evocation of Vergil in Tolkien's Art, Robert Morse asks the question: does this syncretism of myth and history serve a similar purpose in each author?During my several readings of the text I have developed my own understanding of Tolkiena#39;s work. ... Like Umberto Eco, I believe an author writes fiction to generate opinions.1 Like every other reader, I have had to answer two basic questions.
