Rolf Witzsche, The Lord of the Rings' Metaphors

Vancouver, 2003. 1st edition. Oversized 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.*

Tolkien: A Secret Vice (13/6)

Tolkien on Invented Languages

HarperCollins, 2016. 1st edition. Hardback. Edited by Dimitra Fimi and Andrew Higgins.

J.R.R. Tolkien’s linguistic invention was a fundamental part of his artistic output, to the extent that later on in life he attributed the existence of his mythology to the desire to give his languages a home and peoples to speak them. As Tolkien puts it in ‘A Secret Vice’, ‘the making of language and mythology are related functions’’.

In the 1930s, Tolkien composed and delivered two lectures, in which he explored these two key elements of his sub-creative methodology. The second of these, the seminal Andrew Lang Lecture for 1938–9, ‘On Fairy-Stories’, which he delivered at the University of St Andrews in Scotland, is well known. But many years before, in 1931, Tolkien gave a talk to a literary society entitled ‘A Hobby for the Home’, where he unveiled for the first time to a listening public the art that he had both himself encountered and been involved with since his earliest childhood: ‘the construction of imaginary languages in full or outline for amusement’.

This talk would be edited by Christopher Tolkien for inclusion as ‘A Secret Vice’ in The Monsters and the Critics and Other Essays and serves as the principal exposition of Tolkien’s art of inventing languages. This new critical edition, which includes previously unpublished notes and drafts by Tolkien connected with the essay, including his ‘Essay on Phonetic Symbolism’, goes some way towards re-opening the debate on the importance of linguistic invention in Tolkien’s mythology and the role of imaginary languages in fantasy literature.*

Dominic Sandbrook, The Great British Dream Factory

The Strange History of Our National Imagination

Allen Lane, 2015. 1st edition. Hardback.

Britain's empire has gone. Our manufacturing base is a shadow of its former self; the Royal Navy has been reduced to a skeleton. In military, diplomatic and economic terms, we no longer matter as we once did. And yet there is still one area in which we can legitimately claim superpower status: our popular culture.

It is extraordinary to think that one British writer, J. K. Rowling, has sold more than 400 million books; that Doctor Who is watched in almost every developed country in the world; that James Bond has been the central character in the longest-running film series in history; that The Lord of the Rings is the second best-selling novel ever written (behind only A Tale of Two Cities); that the Beatles are still the best-selling musical group of all time; and that only Shakespeare and the Bible have sold more books than Agatha Christie. To put it simply, no country on earth, relative to its size, has contributed more to the modern imagination.

This is a book about the success and the meaning of Britain's modern popular culture, from Bond and the Beatles to heavy metal and Coronation Street, from the Angry Young Men to Harry Potter, from Damien Hirst toThe X Factor.*

E.L. Risden, Tolkien's Intellectual Landscape (29/6)

McFarland, 2015. 1st ediiton. Paperback. Cover by Ted Nasmith. The work of J.R.R. Tolkien has had a profound effect on contemporary fiction and film making, yet criticism often places him at the margins of twentieth- and twenty-first century thought and experience. He actually sits near the centre of the last century's intellectual landscape: his fiction created a new market for the “fantasy trilogy,” his academic work represents what philology can still accomplish in academe and beyond, and his Catholic faith retains great meaning for millions of persons worldwide.*
