Oh wait, you asked "exactly".
Fantasy. Really really good fantasy, beautiful poetry, grotesque violence, and some seriously tedious geneology.
Over all, a good read. Right up there with Hamilton's Hellenic Tales, Aesop's Fables, The Baghavad Ghita, and Kipling.
Of course, C.S. Lewis retold it even better, and he left out most of the icky parts.
