J.R.R.Tolkien Résumé

J.R.R.Tolkien: Author of the Century T. A. Shippey

Recent polls have consistently declared that J.R.R. Tolkien is "the most influential author of the century", and "The Lord of the Rings" as Book of the Century. In light of this, the respected and world-renowned Tolkien scholar Tom Shippey presents us with a companion to the works of J.R.R. Tolkien, in particular focusing on "The Hobbit", "The Lord of the Rings" and "The Silmarillion". The seven chapters look at: Hobbits, and other magical creatures; the central quest of the Ring, examining Tolkien's views of good and evil, and his work's relevance to the major issues of 20th century politics, such as the nature of industrialized war; and also Tolkien's phenomenal influence on the fantasy genre and the unique role of The Lord of the Rings as the first and greatest fantasy novel in modern fiction. Written in a clear, accessible style, this text aims to give the reader a deeper understanding of the great man's work in the context of who he was, and also serves as a ideal introductory companion to some of the most successful fantasy literature ever written,

À propos de T. A. Shippey

Professor Tom Shippey taught at Oxford, overlapping chronologically with Professor Tolkien and teaching the same syllabus, giving him an intimate familiarity with the poems and the languages which formed the main stimulus to Tolkien's imagination. He subsequently held the same Chair of English Language and Medieval Literature at Leeds University which Tolkien held early in his career, and currently holds the Walter J. Ong Chair of Humanities at Saint Louis University, USA.
