I re-read this for a course in classic fantasy.

Despite being a product of the 60's, this tale has stood the test of time. It certainly is a beautiful classic. The language of the writing and the iconic themes hold even 40 years later.

It's also fascinating in that the book is very self-aware. It knows it is a fairy-tale, revels in itself and still teaches us the meaning of heroes and love and sacrifice. That we must be part of the world.

May it hold for another 40 years.
