Your statement is objectively wrong, and you should be ashamed of yourself. Tolkien isn't even anywhere close to the fantasy writer with the most literary merit

Honestly, a couple of the premises don't really sound too bad, but I'm tired of the merit of something to these people being how woke it is. Every one of these novels is clearly agenda pushing. They could have easily made a "top 10 diverse 21st-century fantasy novels" or something and it would have been perfectly fine, but they can't help but be disingenuous by focusing on only a specific type of novel within a broad genre.

It is a bit of a futile endeavor after this smug guy and Tolkien already wrote the perfect fantasy novels

Why bother with something mediocre when there's still plenty of comfy fantasy classics to read?
