Conrad O'Briain (red.), Tolkien: The Forest and the City

  • Beschrijving
Dublin, 2013. 1e druk. Ingebonden. Essaybundel met o.a. Verly Flieger, Michael Drout, Thomas Honegger en de onvermijdelijke Tom Shippey. Despite the association of J.R.R. Tolkien with the natural world, Middle-earth as landscape and built environment has been relatively neglected. Tolkien: the forest and the city presents new work by some of the finest scholars in Tolkien studies, as well as research from a number of emerging scholars, addressing this neglect. Drawing on a wide variety of critical approaches, from philology to ecocriticism, in a clear, approachable style, this collection explores the interaction of culture and nature that imbues Tolkien’s secondary world with the immediacy of our own. *
