Timothy Enloe, Testing the Limits of Subcreation

An Analysis of a Key Concept in the Writings of JRR Tolkien

2011. Paperback.

The concept of "subcreation" is a key to understanding what J.R.R. Tolkien was attempting to do in his fantasy works. Subcreation, or the idea that the creatures God makes are themselves able to create within the boundaries that God has set, but not necessarily in the same way He Himself actually did things, puts many of Tolkien's seeming theological novelties into perspective and helps us to better appreciate his faithful literary artistry. As well, by coming to grips with this concept as it appears in Tolkien's works, we may be able to find inspiration for our own subcreative works done for the glory of God and the advancement of His kingdom.*

Verlyn Flieger (red.), Tolkien's Legendarium

Essays on The History of Middle-earth

Greenwood Press, 2000. 1e druk. Ingebonden (geen stofomslag uitgegeven).

As a scholar of mediaeval languages and literature, J.R.R. Tolkien brought to his fiction an intense interest in myth and legend. When he died in 1973, he left behind a vast body of unpublished material related to his fictive mythology. Now edited and published as "The History of Middle-Earth" by his son and literary executor, Christopher Tolkien, these 12 volumes provide a record of the growth of J.R.R. Tolkien's mythology from its beginnings in 1917 to the time of his death more than 50 years later. The material in these volumes offers an insight into Tolkien's process of myth-making and is a guide to the world of his literary works. An opening essay by Rayner Unwin, Tolkien's publisher for many years, surveys the publication history of the collection. The essays that follow, each written by an expert contributor, explore a wide range of topics related to "The History of Middle-Earth". Included are discussions of Tolkien's languages, the evolution of his vision over time, the shifting importance of central characters, and the effect of his mythology on "The Lord of the Rings". By exploring this mythological compendium, the volume sheds further light on the entire body of J.R.R.

Verlyn Flieger, Green Suns and Faërie

Essays on JRR Tolkien

Kent State University Press, 2012. 1e druk. Paperback. Omslag door Ted Nasmith.

The essays are divided into three distinct sections. The first explores Tolkien's ideas of sub-creation--the making of a Secondary World and its relation to the real world, the second looks at Tolkien's reconfiguration of the medieval story tradition, and the third places his work firmly within the context of the twentieth century and "modernist" literature. With discussions ranging from Tolkien's concepts of the hero to the much-misunderstood nature of Bilbo's last riddle in The Hobbit, Flieger reveals Tolkien as a man of both medieval learning and modern sensibility--one who is deeply engaged with the past and future, the regrets and hopes, the triumphs and tragedies, and above all the profound difficulties and dilemmas of his troubled century.

Taken in their entirety, these essays track a major scholar's deepening understanding of the work of the master of fantasy. Green Suns and Faërie is sure to become a cornerstone of Tolkien scholarship.*
