Madeleine L’Engle on Truth and Fantasy

Several people have told me they enjoyed the post from earlier this week featuring J.R.R. Tolkien and C.S. Lewis debating myth and lies. In the same vein, here is a lecture given in 1998 by Madeleine L’Engle, in which she speaks about the relationship of truth and fantasy (HT: The Rabbit Room).

This lecture was given as part of the Veritas Forum. To learn more about this great series of discussions on the nature of Truth, check out my review of the book A Place for Truth here. You can also see one of my very favorite lectures from the series — which features Jeremy Begbie on the interface between theology and the arts, and is much shorter than this one — here.

P.S. – If you’ve never read her masterpiece A Wrinkle in Time, drop what you’re doing and head to the nearest library!
