Description: New essays on Tolkien recognize his stature in literary history and examine his works afresh. This collection seeks to address and redress the gaps in Tolkien scholarship, put Tolkien's works in their proper contexts, and explore some of the springs that nurtured his imagination. Contributors are medievalists, critics, and fantasy literature and Tolkien scholars. Some topics include Tolkien and Old English and Old Norse tradition, Tolkien's use of medieval allegory, and women fantasists. Clark is professor emeritus of English at Queen's University, Canada. Timmons has published articles on Tolkien. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR () -- Book News

Although Tolkien's literary works have, over the past few decades, attracted a considerable and varied body of criticism, much of this material is inaccessible, unreflective, and repetitive. Though various scholars have treated Tolkien's sources and his concept of fantasy, this study situates the author in a broad literary context that includes ancient metrical modes, medieval culture, Renaissance poetics, 19th-century social movements, and modern critical thought. Each chapter is written by an expert contributor and examines the literary resonances of Tolkien's works from a variety of informed perspectives. -- Greenwood Pub Group

Analyzes Tolkien's works in relation to major literary movements from ancient times to the present day. -- Greenwood Pub Group
