    If you love Tolkien and Middle Earth and want to get into the meat of what he created, this group of essays is wonderful. I initially checked this book out of the library because I wanted to read the essay by Michael D.C. Drout that marries so beautifully Tolkien's Anglo-Saxon scholarly studies to his creation of the Middle Earth mythology/5. The essays that follow, each written by an expert contributor, explore a wide range of topics related to The History of Middle-earth. Included are discussions of Tolkien's languages, the evolution of his vision over time, the shifting importance of central characters, and the effect of his mythology on The Lord of the Rings/5(42).

    Heavily influenced by Norse mythology, Tolkien had been a reader of the Icelandic sagas since childhood. In the Völsunga saga – the text that also inspired Richard Wagner’s opera, Der Ring des Nibelungen – an all-powerful ring and a broken sword that is reforged are both main features of the story, similar key elements in Tolkien’s : Camille Buckley. No. There never was and there never will be, because Middle-Earth and its history belonged to Tolkien. He was Middle-Earth’s singular creator and historian.

Tolkien's position on Darwin. if it references evolution at all, but it might be owed to the fact that this is a childrens book; it certainly does give us no proof of Tolkien believing in Darwinian evolution either way.

we see that Tolkien became quite concerned with bringing his mythology more in line with what's plausible. In summary, The Evolution of Tolkien’s Mythology is a somewhat limited, but still highly valuable work. Even if it does not quite reach the level of insight achieved by the best Tolkien scholarship such as the books of Shippey and Flieger, it does cover significant new ground in comprehensively examining The History of Middle-earth series.

As far as I know, no. Tolkien himself makes plain that it is fictional. Some people do perform ceremonies based on his work, but these are social events.

The purpose of this paper is to explain the creation of a new mythology by John Ronald Reuel Tolkien. His main sources of inspiration are firstly exposed in order to be secondly contrasted with their reshapings and the new elements given to the Heroic Fantasy by this famous writer.

Especially, his influences from Antiquity, from his work and his attractions are evoked as well. Based on his own theory of how even fiction and mythology can contribute to the revelation of God’s grace, this thesis can confirm Father Murray’s words that Tolkien’s writings are in “a positive compatibility with the order of Grace,” (Carpenter, a, p.

), and show that they do not disturb the traditional Christian. A mythology of the world ("geo-mythology") "handed over to powers which are created under the One" is exactly gnostic. "Demiurge" is the usual gnostic term for such powers. I think this premise is wrong.
