ཛྷ The Best ┳ Tolkien and the Great War: The Threshold of Middle-earth  ᚜ PDF by John Garth ᣟ ཛྷ The Best ┳ Tolkien and the Great War: The Threshold of Middle-earth ᚜ PDF by John Garth ᣟ Millions of new captives of the Lord of the Rings saga have been roped into J.R.R Tolkiens fantasy world as the result of Peter Jacksons three part cinematic interpretation of the great 20th century fantasy John Garths Tolkien and the Great War will certainly captivate an elite segment of those recent converts, but it is written for those who have long been enthralled by Middle earth and its fantastic denizens While many early readers found parallels between World War II and the Lord of the Rings fairy tale, Garth reaches back to World War I to find the deep roots in Middle earth Prior to the Great War, Tolkien was a scholar with a deep passion for language and fables In fact, he formed a literary circle with a few friends dubbed the Tea Club and Barrovian Society Its members had the misfortune of coming of age just as the war was reaching a fevered pitch Tolkien, a second lieutenant in the British army, survived the bloody Battle of the Somme, which took the lives of two of his closest friends Garth adeptly chronicles how the devastation Tolkien witnessed helped shape the mythic tale that was already brewing in his mind Written with a seriousness one associates with the time it chronicles, Tolkien and the Great War is a erudite but eminently readable exploration of how the harsh reality of the early 20th century colored one of the beloved fantasies of the modern era Steven StolderThis dense but informative study addresses the long standing controversy over how J.R.R Tolkien s WWI experience influenced his literary creations A London journalist, Garth is a student of both Tolkien and the Great War He writes that when war broke out, Tolkien was active in an Oxford literary society known as the Tea Club and Barrovian Society TCBS , along with three of his closest friends Finishing his degree before joining up, Tolkien served as a signal officer in the nightmarish Battle of the Somme in 1916, where two of those friends were killed The ordeal on the Somme led to trench fever, which sent him home for the rest of the war and probably saved his life It also influenced a body of Northern European flavored mythology he had been inventing and exploring in both prose and verse before the war, toward its evolution into The Book of Lost Tales and in due course Lord of the Rings and The Silmarillion This book could not pretend to be aimed at other than the serious student of Tolkien, and readers will benefit from a broad knowledge of his work as well as a than casual knowledge of WWI But it also argues persuasively that Tolkien did not create his mythos to escape from or romanticize the war Rather, the war gave dimensions to a mythos he was already industriously exploring Garth s fine study should have a major audience among serious students of Tolkien, modern fantasy and the influence of war on literary creation Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information, Inc.
