Tolkien the Medievalist by Jane Chance

Book Description

Interdisciplinary in approach, Tolkien the Medievalist provides a fresh perspective on J. R. R. Tolkien's Medievalism. In fifteen essays, eminent scholars and new voices explore how Professor Tolkien responded to a modern age of crisis - historical, academic and personal - by adapting his scholarship on medieval literature to his own personal voice. The four sections reveal the author influenced by his profession, religious faith and important issues of the time; by his relationships with other medievalists; by the medieval sources that he read and taught, and by his own medieval mythologizing.

Tolkien's Modern Middle Ages by Jane Chance Tolkien's Modern Middle Ages, Paperback (July 2009)

This collection examines how J.R.R. Tolkien delved into the Middle Ages to fashion a critique of the modern world that is postmodern in implication, subversive in nature, and oddly still traditionalist in motivation, in a way that is relevant to current debate over forging workable cross-cultural coalitions on pressing global problems.

Literary Subversions of Medieval Women by Jane Chance Literary Subversions of Medieval Women, Hardback (September 2007)

A study of medieval women as post-colonial writers that defines the literary strategies of subversion by which they authorized their alterity within the dominant tradition.
