Ursula K. Leguin on fantasy
dream
evcelt
"The use of [fantasy] is to give you pleasure and delight."

She has a lot of good things to say about fantasy and the American attitude towards it... things have changed since 1974, of course, but what she says about Puritanism and the devaluation of anything that can't be monetized- that still rings true.

Found the link in an excellent recent interview with her.

Also: Wow, she's 85. So's my Dad. Time marches on...
