Exploring Tolkien

This is for all Tolkien fans: as the world waits to be gripped by a Hobbit fever this week, the IATEFL Literature, Media and Cultural Studies Special Interest Group proposed to go beyond the movie excitement and explore the full breadth of J.R.R Tolkien’s creative and critical writing. For a whole last week Eduardo Lima, our guest fielder, explored the various nuances of the work of the man who wrote the UK’s most beloved book, The Lord of the Rings.

He posted there selected passages of Tolkien’s work and briefly commented on them. His comments are posted on his blog  and can be accessed here.
