CS Lewis and JRR Tolkien

There are a lot of memes about Tolkien trashing Lewis’s Narnia books because they don’t have the depth of Middle Earth.

This is nonsense. The depth of Narnia is all of Christianity.

Okay, the memelords say, but they only have religious depth. Narnia doesn’t have the linguistic depth of Middle Earth.

I cannot imagine Tolkien, the devout Roman Catholic, making that argument.
