Missing the Fantasy Classics

You know I miss the fantasy classics when fantasy was simple but sweet. When people would write not to extend their series to ten books but for the sheer love of the art. I've read some of the current fantasy stuff like Robert Jordan, Martin but for some reason it doesn't compare to some of the stuff I read when I was a kid likes for instance, Lloyd Alexander's Prydain series, Susan Cooper's the dark is rising, Zilphia Snyder's "Below the root", the Narnia Chronicles by Lewis and even The sword of Shannara series and Thomas Covenant. There is something simple yet sweet about those classics. Maybe I have not found the latest great author yet but I miss those books still.
