Rolf Witsche, The Lord of the Rings' Metaphors

Vancouver, 2003. 1e druk. Grootformaat paperback. The author J.R.R. Tolkien of the mythical tale, The Lord of the Rings, did not only explore history, but experienced it in World War I, World War II, and the Cold War. From this background he was able to put into his tales, wrapped in metaphor, a number of critical choices of the kind on which the survival of civilization depends that we still seem to ignore in our world. He wrote a tale in which the present was determined by the imperatives of the future. But also wrote a script for shaping that future and the future obeyed! Tolkien was also an accomplished linguist. Many names in the tale represent profound principles, as well as tragic follies and fascist processes that 'empty' a society of its humanity. The research book presented here explores the dimension that stands behind the numerous metaphors in the tale.*
