The Hobbit and Tolkienäó»s Mythology by Bradford Lee Eden Summary

At the 2013 “Celebrating The Hobbit” conference at Valparaiso University—marking the 75th anniversary of the book’s publication and the first installment of Peter Jackson’s Hobbit movies—two plenary papers were presented: “Anchoring the Myth: The Impact of The Hobbit on Tolkien’s Legendarium” by John D. Rateliff provided numerous examples of The Hobbit’s influence on Tolkien’s legendarium; and “Tolkien’s French Connections” by Verlyn Flieger discussed French influences on the development of Bilbo Baggins and his adventures. In discussions with the plenary speakers and other presenters, it became apparent that a book focusing on how The Hobbit influenced the subsequent development of Tolkien’s legendarium was sorely needed. This collection of 15 previously unpublished essays fills that need. With Rateliff’s and Flieger’s papers included, the book presents two chapters on the Evolution of the Dwarven Race, two chapters on Durin’s Day examining the Dwarven lunar calendar, and 11 chapters on themes exploring various topics on influences and revisions between The Hobbit and Tolkien’s legendarium.

Middle-earth Envisioned by Brian J. Robb,Paul Simpson Summary

DIVThe painstakingly crafted world that J.R.R. Tolkien created for The Hobbit, The Lord of the Rings, and The Silmarillion is so vivid that it’s easy to briefly imagine Middle-earth as a real place—even Tolkien himself had said it existed somewhere on Earth. From the languages spoken and the creatures that peopled it to the wars and cosmology, the richly imagined Middle-earth has left many artists and fans worldwide imagining what it would look and feel like to inhabit such a wildly inspired world. Tolkien left out no details in his picture so it is no surprise that Middle-earth has inspired such inventiveness in turn./divDIV /divDIVMiddle-earth Envisioned is the first book to explore the artistic legacy left by Tolkien’s world. Paintings, drawings, theatrical performances, radio serials, and films inspired by The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings are all discussed in a manner that further illuminates the brilliance of Tolkien’s creation. Readers will discover details surrounding an attempted Beatles live-action version (with Paul McCartney as Frodo Baggins), a nearly four-hour Canadian musical, the West End stage production of Lord of the Rings, and of course, the Peter Jackson films—including the Hobbit trilogy—and much more. In this beautifully illustrated gift book, discover the richness of Middle-earth anew, through the works of the artists inspired by it./divDIV /divDIVFrom NYT bestselling author Brian J.

The Science of Middle-earth by Roland Lehoucq,Loic Mangin,Jean-Sebastien Steyer Summary

The surprising and illuminating look at how Tolkien's love of science and natural history shaped the creation of his Middle Earth, from its flora and fauna to its landscapes. The world J.R.R. Tolkien created is one of the most beloved in all of literature, and continues to capture hearts and imaginations around the world. From Oxford to ComiCon, the Middle Earth is analyzed and interpreted through a multitude of perspectives. But one essential facet of Tolkien and his Middle Earth has been overlooked: science. This great writer, creator of worlds and unforgettable character, and inventor of language was also a scientific autodidact, with an innate interest and grasp of botany, paleontologist and geologist, with additional passions for archeology and chemistry. Tolkien was an acute observer of flora and fauna and mined the minds of his scientific friends about ocean currents and volcanoes. It is these layers science that give his imaginary universe—and the creatures and characters that inhabit it—such concreteness. Within this gorgeously illustrated edition, a range of scientists—from astrophysicists to physicians, botanists to volcanologists—explore Tolkien’s novels, poems, and letters to reveal their fascinating scientific roots. A rewarding combination of literary exploration and scientific discovery, The Science of Middle Earth reveals the hidden meaning of the Ring’s corruption, why Hobbits have big feet, the origins of the Dwarves, the animals which inspired the dragons, and even whether or not an Ent is possible. Enhanced by superb original drawings, this transportive work will delight both Tolkien fans and science lovers and inspire us to view both Middle Earth—and our own world—with fresh eyes.

Créatures fabuleuses, parfois bienveillantes, souvent impitoyables, les dragons ont essaimé la quasi-totalité des mythologies humaines, comme destructeurs de mondes ou gardiens de trésors immémoriaux. Traversant les siècles, on les retrouve aujourd’hui au cœur des littératures de l’imaginaire, chaque fois réinventés. Car depuis le Smaug de Bilbo le Hobbit jusqu’aux fameux dragons de Pern, cet animal légendaire a su emprunter mille formes, croiser mille quêtes pour sans cesse répondre aux innombrables rêves – ou cauchemars – qu’il sait susciter dans le cœur des hommes. C’est à cette figure essentielle de la fantasy que se sont confrontés avec talent les auteurs de cette anthologie. Tour à tour effrayantes, épiques ou pleines d’humour, les nouvelles qui la composent forment le plus beau des hommages à son éternelle majesté. « Les contes de fées ne révèlent pas aux enfants que les dragons existent, les enfants le savent déjà. Les contes de fées leur révèlent que l'on peut tuer les dragons. » G. K. Chesterton

Crying Star by Kane Banway Summary

“¡Alístese en la orgullosa bandera de la Coalición! ¡Vengue a sus familiares caídos en combate contra el vil soldado de Europa! ¡Defienda a su colonia, no les deje caer: ellos cuentan con usted!” Perseo es un joven que ha tenido la suerte de vivir en un planeta tranquilo en el que la tercera guerra de las colonias no es más que un vago eco. Su sueño no es el de aplastar a un enemigo al que ve en todo caso como un vecino lejano y alterado, sino el de volar, pilotar. Acercarse a las estrellas y sentirse por fin libre. Pero para ver cumplido ese sueño va a tener que romper su confortable caparazón de príncipe y obligarse a plantarle cara a la realidad de su mundo.
