J.R.R. Tolkien: A Beginner’s Guide
Andrew Blake (au)
This very readable intro. to the work of J.R.R. Tolkien illustrates why he is the most popular of 20th-cent. writers. His major works include “The Hobbit,” “The Lord of the Rings,” & The Silmarillion.” Examining the novels & other writings, Blake shows how Tolkien’s mastery of language, his establishing of a fully-fledged alternative mythology, & his brave way of looking at difficult questions, have helped to inaugurate a new way of writing which re-established ‘fantasy’ as a late 20th-cent. genre. Focuses on: Tolkien’s life & influences; the novels, shorter stories, & other writings; Tolkien’s recurring use of sources from history, lit. & mythology; the critical responses to Tolkien’s work; & Tolkien’s influence on younger writers, & on our popular culture.
