More or Less Connected Legend

“[O]nce upon a time (my crest has long since fallen) I had a mind to make a body of more or less connected legend, ranging from the large and cosmogonic, to the level of romantic fairy-story — the larger founded on the lesser on contact with the earth, the lesser drawing splendor from the vast backcloths… I would draw some of the great tales in fullness, and leave many only placed in the scheme, and sketched.”

— J.R.R. Tolkien, 1951
