Tolkien, Race and Cultural History: From Fairies to Hobbits
#1
Une nouvelle piquée ailleurs, pour changer Smile

Dimitra Fimi, une illustre inconnue en ce qui me concerne a publié : Tolkien, Race and Cultural History: From Fairies to Hobbits. Voici la présentation de la Tolkien Library :

Citation :
This book, Tolkien, Race and Cultural History: From Fairies to Hobbits, presents an exploration of the evolution of Tolkien's mythology within the framework of its cultural and historical context.

It contributes significantly to Tolkien studies, as well as understanding of many elements of popular culture in the pre-WW1 period.

This is the first book to look at issues of race and ethnicity in Tolkien with any kind of historical knowledge. Tolkien, Race and Cultural History explores the evolution of Tolkien’s mythology by examining how it changed as a result of Tolkien’s life story and contemporary cultural and intellectual history.

Citation :
The book considers Tolkien’s creative writing as an ever-developing ‘legendarium’: an interconnected web of stories, poems and essays, from his early poems in the 1910s to his latest writings in the early 1970s. Uniquely, it discusses Tolkien's early poems linking them with the literary/cultural history of the Edwardian period. It discusses Tolkien's most popular works ("The Hobbit" and "The Lord of the Rings") within a wider context of the writer's creativity and personal mythology, and also examines often-neglected works such as the twelve volume "History of Middle-earth" series, which has received little attention from critics.

This title includes 15 illustrations, including Tolkien's own drawings and sketches, and offers original research based on Tolkien's unpublished manuscripts.

Dimitra Fimi is Associate Lecturer at Cardiff University, UK. Her research interests include the history of fantasy literature, folklore and popular culture, literary adaptations, and the interaction between literature and visual culture.

Fimi explores the evolution of Tolkien's mythology throughout his lifetime by examining how it changed as a result of his life story and contemporary cultural and intellectual history. This new approach and scope brings to light neglected aspects of Tolkien’s imaginative vision and addresses key features of Tolkien’s creativity: the centrality of the Elves and the role of linguistic invention in his legendarium, as well as race and material culture in Middle-earth.

This book is a fantastic and original work on tolkien and I highly recommend it to all serious Tolkien fans and lovers.

Autrement dit, l'auteur insiste sur le lien entre la vie de Tolkien et son art.

NB : $85 ou £47.50 sur amazon.

C'est certainement très intéressant et peut nous aider à mieux comprendre Tolkien et ses œuvres. Mais Je ne sais pas si on peut entièrement expliquer une œuvre littéraire par la vie de son auteur. On ne peut jamais savoir avec exactitude ce qui se tramait dans la tête de l'auteur quand il écrivait. Et à vouloir faire une analyse externe, on peut oublier d'analyser l'œuvre en elle même.
