Tolkien's Art

A Mythology for England

" J.R.R. Tolkien's zeal for medieval literary, religious, and cultural ideas deeply influenced his entire life and provided the seeds for his own fiction. In Tolkien's Art , Chance discusses not only such classics as The Hobbit, The Lord of the Rings , and The Silmarillion , but focuses on his minor works as well, outlining in detail the sources and influences–from pagan epic to Christian legend-that formed the foundation of Tolkien's masterpieces, his "mythology for England."

Reviews

"Highly recommended as a serious critical study of Tolkien's works."—Choice

"Examines the sources and influence of Tolkien's work as well as the paradigm of the critic as monster that colors so many of his writings."—Giustificativo

"The general reader in search of the scholarly roots of Tolkien's fiction together with informed discussion of how those roots nourished the tree will find both here."—Journal of the Fantastic in the Arts

"Chance's companion volumes on Tolkien are brilliantly written and critically significant. Her understanding of his works is profound, and she convincingly confirms him as a major writer of the 20th century."—Kritikon Litterarum

"An attractively presented short study based on an excellent idea, namely that of tracing the nature of the relationship between Tolkien's scholarship in Old and Middle English and his creative writing."—Times Literary Supplement
