This has some further insights into Clark Ashton Smith's estimation of Tolkien's works:

I wonder what CAS would have thought of the recent publication of Tolkien's narrative poems. I am thinking this, particularly since The Fall of Arthur has just been published (and, yes, I already have a copy reserved for me at the local bookshop).

Coincidence: I was just recently reading about the Inklings, and C. S. Lewis' poetic works, such as his long narrative poem,Dymer. Lewis' views on poetry sound very much like those of CAS. Both Lewis and CAS deplored the lifeless abstractions of Eliot, etc.

Interesting interview with Dr F... not entirely convinced by the interpretation of Harry Potter, but I've not read them and each to their own...
