Hobbits, Elves, Orcs, and Dragons! Exploring Tolkien's Fantasy World

August 20, 6 p.m.

J. R. R. Tolkien is best known for his epic adventure novels, The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, and part of what has made these stories so compelling for readers around the globe is the striking detail of the world in which they take place. In this talk, Dr. Robert T. Tally Jr. will discuss the making of Middle-earth by examining Tolkien’s creative process in establishing the history, geography, and cultures of this fantastic “otherworld,” and he will argue that Tolkien’s fantasy is also useful for shaping the sense of our own world today.
