Praise for Joseph Pearce’s
‘Tolkien: Man and Myth’
‘This fine apologia will certainly shift to some degree our polarised view of Ronald Tolkien. Pearce writes beautifully and with great depth. Even Germaine Greer, the great Tolkien-basher, might have second thoughts after reading him.’
This highly readable collection of writings celebrates J R R Tolkien’s great literary legacy and the spiritual values that undergirded his imaginary Middle-earth.
'Tolkien: A Celebration' includes personal recollections by George Sayer and Walter Hooper, and many fascinating pieces, by authors such as Stephen Lawhead, exploring the threads of inspiration and purpose in his major works. These dip into subjects such as The Sense of Time in 'The Lord of the Rings, Tolkien: Master of Middle-earth', and 'Tolkien, Lewis and Christian Myth'.
Most of the writings are previously unpublished and provide an invaluable insight into the creative mystery of this man. They will be much treasured by those who regard him as a literary hero.
