Tolkien wrote Mythopoeia following a discussion on the night of 19 September 1931 at Magdalen College, Oxford with C. S. Lewis and Hugo Dyson.

The book is less useful for readers seeking to identify Japanese woodblock prints, tattoos, kimono motifs, netsuke carvings, sword furnishings, and porcelains, all of which are among the world's most subject-matter oriented. This is due in the first instance to the book's paucity of illustrations, and in the second case to the author's emphasis on the definition of personalities and creatures at the expense of discussing how they are visually represented.
