Tolkien Man and Myth

Joseph Pearce ↠ 2 Download Characters ´ PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free ↠ Joseph Pearce Summary Tolkien Man and Myth JRR Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings took first place in a nationwide British poll to find the greatest book of the century He may be the most popular writer of our age but Tolkien is often misunderstood This major new study of his life his character and his work reveals the facts and confronts the myt. This Tolkien bio was a breath of fresh air in many ways First it reminded me how hobbit y I am Trees and books and delicious food 6 times a day and what not Second it reminded me of some beautiful passages memories really from some of my favorite stories Third it was a biography that didn t over reach and make unfounded assumptions and intimations about the author And fourth it gave me a clear and beautiful sense of Tolkien s understanding of the relationship between myth and truth and the way that this concept shaped his writing Pearce writes For most modern critics a myth is merely another word for a lie or a falsehood something which is intrinsically NOT true For Tolkien myth had virtually the opposite meaning It was the only way that certain transcendent truths could be expressed in intelligible formWe have all had that sense of transcendent truth seen it written in nature as Tolkien so often did And his explanation of the way myths and fairy stories help us grasp something of that Truth explains why they seem to resonate There is a wonderful account of a conversation between Tolkien and Hugo Dyson and CS Lewis that laid the foundations for Lewis s Christianity We have come from God Tolkien argued and inevitably the myths woven by us though they contain error reflect a splintered fragment of the true light the eternal truth that is with God Tolkien maintained that God expressed Himself through the minds of poets using their images to reveal parts of His eternal truth What had a profound effect on Lewis was the next step in the argument Tolkien s belief that Christianity was exactly the same except for the enormous difference that the poet who invented it was God Himself and the images He used were real men and actual history It is in this sense that Lewis called Christianity a true myth Using actual history and events God told the story of His love for humanity a story that illuminates the Truth in the world around us and the world within us hat tip to Stratford Caldecott Pearce starts his 8th chapter with a uote from GK Chesterton We have come out of the shallows and the dry places to the one deep well and the Truth is at the bottom of it Tolkien s understanding of the beauty of Truth permeates all of his work and Pearce does a masterful job laying that out for the reader So glad I picked this one up

I pretty much love everything by Joseph Pearce His writing style really resonates with me I picked this book up because I went to see the semi biopic movie on Tolkien and I wanted to see how much was true to fact Side note it did fairly well However a movie can never go to the same depths as the written word due to limitations of the medium and the book rightly explored some areas the the movie could not portray My one complaint the book was a blend of Tolkien s life story and the inspiration for his works To ignore his work would be negligent of course but it sometimes overtook the narrative of his life I think Pearce has a very particular viewpoint to communicate and it dominated the entire piece And he kind of geeked out over a few things But none of that prevents me for giving it a hearty recommendation It s a book I m glad I purchased because I ll definitely reread it
