Summary

This fragment of a letter, dated May 25, 1972, sent to a Mr. Wrigley. Wrigley had predicted that academics would be occupied with searching for sources to The Lord of the Rings for several generations. Tolkien disagrees: he considers the particular use at a particular situation of any motive, whether invented, deliberately borrowed or unconsciously remembered the most interesting.
