"But in Lewis' world (and, it might be added, in all mythic worlds and moral schemes until our own epoch), we find that the fixed order that presides so serenely and absolutely over the lives and acts of the creatures in that world, not only does not cramp the freedom and selfhood of those creatures: it is synonymous with it. All the creatures find their selfhood in a blissful hierarchical scale in which they have responsibilities of service running in both directions on the scale, up and down."

~Thomas Howard
