Confession Time

Madeline L'Engle passed away on Thursday.
I must confess that I've never read any of her books. Apparently, this is one of the great opportunities of "youth literature" that I missed out on. Now that she's on the other side, I'll never get to meet (in earthy corporeal form) this person who I could have revered as one of the few remaining authors who understands mythopoeia and the importance of Christian "fairy stories."
Too bad I'm too busy re-reading The Hobbit to check out her stuff. Maybe when the thesis is done...
