"The Christian joy, the Gloria, is of the same kind; but it is pre-eminently (infinitely, if our capacity were not finite) high and joyous. Because this story is supreme; and it is true. Art has been verified. God is the Lord, of angels, and of men - and of elves. Legend and History have met and fused."

- J.R.R. Tolkien
The Fall of Arthur, a New Epic Poem

ÔÇťArthur eastward in arms purposed
his war to wage on the wild marches,
over seas sailing to Saxon lands,
from the Roman realm ruin defending."

Thus begins a new epic poem by the beloved author of The Lord of the Rings. What's that, you ask? How can write a new poem when he's been dead since 1973? Bah! What is death among friends?
